I AM JUPITER I AM THE BIGGEST PLANET is a silent fable set under the neon lights of the red light district in Manila. A sexpat searches for pleasure. A madam is searching for answers. A daughter waits for her mother to return home. These intersecting narratives lead to a climax in which we are left speechless with love dripping from the screen.
