Overview

Leonor Reyes was once a major player in the Filipino film industry after creating a string of successful action films, but now her household struggles to pay the bills. When she reads an advertisement looking for screenplays, Leonor begins tinkering with an unfinished script about the quest of young, noble Ronwaldo, forced to avenge his brother’s murder at the hand of thugs. While her imagination provides some escape from reality, she goes all-in after an accident involving a television knocks her out, sends her into a coma, and transports her inside the incomplete movie. Now Leonor can play out her wildest dreams firsthand and discover the perfect ending to her story.

Review

A film will always be a question and a mystery that captivates filmmakers. Leonor, a retired writer who enjoyed success in writing the screenplays for Filipino action films in the 1970s and 1980s, takes out a long-buried screenplay and starts writing again. One day, he is hit in the head by a television that fell from the sky, falls into a coma, and enters the story he is writing. What is cinema to Leonor, to Escobar who directed this film as her first feature, and to the audience who experience crossing the boundary between the two films? The film is action; it is the glory of the past; it is a dead son; it is a typewriter that makes machine gun sounds. Also, the film is in a coma; it is an incomplete ending; it is numerous video clips in an editing program. The film is friendship; a sacrifice for friendship. And film may be a song that follows death. [CHO Hyo Jin]
