At school, teenaged Felix (Khalil Ramos) is pretty much a loner, but not because he's so unlikeable but because he's just ... a really good student, one who's diligent and who knows good grades are the only way to college and thus out of the poor surroundings his mother has brought him up in. Then Magnus Snyder (Ethan Salvador), a handsome boy of Filipino-American origin, is introduced to the class, and there's something that attracts Felix to him from square one, even if Magnus is seemingly his opposite, a rather lazy student living in a rich neighbourhood, and not afraid to spend his money. However, since Magnus wants to finish high school eventually, even if for the sole reason that his dad, an American soldier, has promised to fetch him and take him to the USA after graduation, he asks Magnus to tutor him - which Felix does gladly, at first because Magnus pays him, but soon he becomes quite taken in by Magnus's lifestyle that's much more relaxed than his own, includes cigarettes and alcohol, and a constant feeling of plenty, a feeling Felix wants to be a part of, diligently saving all the money he earns from Magnus. But there's not all rosey in Magnus and his younger brother Maxim's (Jameson Blake) lives, as their mother Demetria (Ana Capri), cool woman that she pretends to be, is actually a high class prostitute, and the boys know it very well - even that their dad might have been one of her clients ...

Eventually, while drunk, Demetria confesses to Felix that Magnus and Maxim's dad won't come to fetch them, has long married another woman in the USA, and shows no interest into his Filipino sons. Magnus overhears the conversation, and all his dreams and hopes are shattered all at once - so much so that he quits being tutored by Felix and is expelled from school soon afterwards. This breaks Felix's heart a little, as to him Magnus has long become a friend, maybe even more. Maxim has of course long noticed how much Felix admires Magnus, so he comes up with a proposition of how to win back Magnus's affection and get him and Maxim himself to America after all - a proposition that's so dark and wrong that Felix is at a loss how to properly react ...


A pretty compelling drama that starts out as a coming of age story, sexual awakening included, but gradually turns into a dark psycho thriller - which works without a hitch as the film is carried by strong character arcs that remain relatable throughout, while the movie itself puts subtlety over spectacle, tells its tale in a very unexcited way that concentrates on little things rather than spectacle. And of course, solid lead performances only help making this a pretty cool movie.
