From the depths of a soft-focus blur. a gorgeous young man emerges. He is stripped of all clothing save for tight briefs, and gyrates slowly to the sensuous music. Then another nearly naked boys appears behind him, and then another. Soon the screen is filled with a bevy of oiled, sinuous bodies in motion all for the pleasure of the audience.
In the Philippines, dancing draws young men seeking work to Manila s gay bars. Their stories have much in common: working to support families or their own ambitions, preyed upon by men with money and desire, used up long before they hit thirty.
Twilight Dancers tells the story of young Dwight (Tyron Perez), a fresh newcomer to the dance bars, and his part time lover Alfred (Allen Dizon), who at 28 is already on his way down, as the two negotiate the perils of the world of back stabbing and bitch slapping that is dancing for money.
