Junjun is the new kid on the block, a 12 year old kid who’s just moved in to a slum in Quezon City.
His initiation into this new playgroup begins with a series of innocent childhood games. There’s joy, laughter and fun in the games they’ve devised and adapted to their surroundings.
They don’t have a care in the world.
Their game of tag is adapted into a full fledged collection of strategy and role-playing street games.
But the realities mirrored in these games hits very close to home when they realise they have no home to return to.
