Gibson Bonifacio stopped speaking when he was a child.

Now twenty years old, he is back in Manila for Christmas. While always festive in the Philippines, for his family it is tinged with sadness, marking the anniversary of his twin brother’s death. Against the backdrop of the vibrant local music scene, his childhood best friend tries to reconnect with him, while he unexpectedly finds a chance at his first, real romantic relationship.

Gibson reconsiders and redefines his relationship with his family, with himself, even with his dead brother: the only person he talks to.
