The Masseur

 

20 year old Manila charmer Lliac returns home to the distant province of Pampanga to attend to the funeral of his philandering alcoholic father.

 

What with a questionable career as a massage therapist-cum-sex worker and an ebullient girlfriend getting in the way, Lliac must reconcile his exotic city lifestyle and homosexual preferences with familly commmitements. English subtitles.

 

Shot in the backstreets of Sampaloc, Manila, this bittersweet tale of adolescence has captured the hearts of audiences around the globe.
