Gibson Bonifacio stopped speaking when he was a child. Now 20 years old, he is back in Manila for Christmas. For his family, the festive holiday season is tinged with sadness, as it marks the anniversary of Gibson’s twin brother’s death. Against the backdrop of the vibrant Manila music scene, Gibson’s childhood best friend tries to reconnect with him, while he unexpectedly finds a chance at his first real romance. Gibson reconsiders and redefines his relationship with his family, with himself, even with his dead brother: the only person he talks to.
