A meta action-fantasy of fists and finding fulfillment.
Retired filmmaker Leonor made a living writing gritty Filipino action flicks throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, but lately she’s struggling to make ends meet. And her exasperated son no longer knows what to do with her. But when she’s conked on the head by a falling television and slips into a coma, Leonor suddenly finds herself lost inside the violent world of one of her unfinished screenplays. Fantasy and reality blur in increasingly outlandish ways as Leonor joins her fist-fighting hero on his quest for revenge against those who wronged him, while back in the more mundane real world her son rallies the family by her side.
A sweet and comically surreal love letter to genre cinema, and the power of the movies to help us cope with whatever hardships life may throw at us.
