Gibson doesn’t speak. After studying abroad, it is his first time back in Manila after three years. Despite an old family wound suffered from a tragic loss years ago, Gibson finds himself falling in love. He will soon have to redefine his relationships with his family, friends and with himself.
Directed by Marie Jamora, this film follows the struggles of Gibson (Dominic Roco) as his family life falls apart at the seams, and his developing romance with Enid amidst the local Manila music scene. Manila’s greatest independent acts like Sandwich, Tarsius, Pedicab, and Flying Ipis set the tone of this film.
If you enjoy a good coming-of-age story and a good musical score, then this is your kind of film. Be sure to catch Ang Nawawala (What Isn’t There) at this year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival 2012 (New Breed Category) in CCP, Greenbelt and Trinoma from July 21-29. —WHO’S YOUR DANI?
