BIG BOY is an atmospheric portrait of a boy growing up in 1950s Mindoro, and how he is groomed into becoming the poster boy for his parent's home-based business. The film is an experimental portrait of a family amidst change -- an experience that will engage audiences in something strange but familiar.
