Andrew Young, UK Film Review

"This the subject of Phil Giordano’s tightly focussed NYU Tisch thesis script, focussing on Rene-Boy (Andrei Fajarito), who isn’t too keen on having his rite-of-passage surgery, performed by his own father Itoy (John Arcilla), rock-sharpened knife in hand.

This theme of youth’s disdain for the importance placed on tradition and conformity is a well-worn path, but has rarely been shown in this way."
