Halina Mitchell, a half-Filipino, half-American New Yorker who visits the Philippines for the first time to meet her relatives. Here she encounters Cris, a struggling film critic whose passionate loathing for bad local movies reflects his views of modern Filipino society.
Coming from completely different worlds, the two eventually learn from each other. Through Cris, Halina gets a quick course on Manila life, from driving through midnight traffic to listening to the Eraserheads, while she helps him gain a newfound appreciation of living in his own country.
