i get so sad sometimes
Jake is a high school teenager in Pagadian, a town too small for him. He lives with his mother and keeps his circle small by only hanging out with Marco and their two other friends. However, at night, he secretly spends his time on the internet with a mature man whose face he still hasn’t seen yet. When this stranger finally promises that he’ll reveal his face the day after, Jake couldn’t contain his excitement but must only keep it to himself.
