Consuelo, a ghost who has haunted Escolta for many years, finds a respite from her loneliness in Joey, a young man who has just died. As the two ghosts pass the time before Joey moves to the afterlife, Consuelo questions her reasons for staying put.

About the Director:

Janus Victoria has a lifelong fascination with Metro Manila’s many faces. Her interest in the city serves as an inspiration behind the stories she wants to tell. With ​Viva Viva Escolta, she finally completes a series of shorts callectively called ​Pares, a trilogy about unlikely pairings of alienated individuals in the crowded metro. Janus is also working on her first feature length film about two cities, Tokyo and Manila, entitled Kodokushi.
