Gil Blanco (Robin Padilla), a landlord of an apartment block, suffers
frequent blackouts brought about by his excessive drinking. His
alcoholism has driven his wife from their home, leaving him to take
care of his only child, a son, Nino (John Michael Reyes).
In his despair, Gil promises to quit drinking and commit to reunifying
his family. But one night, Gil suffers another blackout. This time,
he is left with a mysterious bloody bumper and smashed taillight
of his aging and battered auto.
In the calamitous aftermath his life spirals uncontrollably as he
struggles to uncover the real story hidden by his fragmented viewpoint,
one where the lines between reality and illusion are blurred.
