Harry (Rodel Velayo) was born in Olongapo near the former site of America's largest military base in Southeast Asia. His abusive American father pimped out his mother and eventually young Harry, as well. With his best friend James, he runs away and goes to Manila, where he eventually finds work bumping and grinding in the city's gay clubs. Filled with anger, he seeks out his father, who murdered his mom, only to discover him decrepit, impoverished, and dying of AIDS.
