Synopsis

In the slums of Manila, Maximo Oliveros, a young effeminate and happy 12 year old boy, lives with his father and two elder brothers in a world of theft and trafficking. The amusing sexuality of Maxi is accepted by his family, bringing with it a softness to the poor and violent world in which they live. Until the day Maxi falls in love with a young and handsome policeman...with the modesty and boldness of pre-adolescent desire, this jewel of a story is truly illuminated by Maxi who enthusiastically overturns the boundaries of sexuality and and roles. Teddy award for best film, Berlin Festival 2006.
