One of the most internationally acclaimed Filipino films of all time!
The purity of first love is pitted against the squalor and corruption in the slums of Manila, the setting for Ang Pagdadalaga Ni Maximo Oliveros (The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros).
Gay pre-teen Maxi is deeply and uncomplainingly devoted to his family of petty thieves.
He cleans house for them, cooks for them, washes their underwear, mends their tattered jeans, and when neccessary, covers theirs tracks.
His world revolves around his father and his two brothers, who love and protect him in return.
