Efren is a typical ‘Overseas Filipino Worker’ in Saudi Arabia whose reasons for leaving the country is as predictable as the Tagalog movies he watches on television whenever he is alone at night; Life is hard, the people discontented, the system is in the brink of collapse. Philippines movies only remind him of everything he left behind. Including his family.
And it is for the latter that he chooses to stay far away and struggle with his meanest enemy every single night. That enemy-homesickness.
It drives away sleep and invite only more of the same discussion within his head-did he do the right thing? Is he a hero for family and country or just simply insane for choosing to work in the desert for men who wear skirts? The mind never knows when the rest of the body is aching for home.
