The story of Cano is set in the Philippines, in a barangay (division) built on top of a former landfill. It’s the story of Jun Jun (Dennis Ascalon) who lives alone, and who loves to spend his free time watching American movies and trying to imitate the characters he sees on the screen. His peace is disturbed by his neighbors who nightly come to watch their favourite local soap opera on the only TV set in the area. One evening they hear shocking news about heir neighbourhood.
Cano shows a glimpse of life in a poor Filipino community, in which over 50% of the population live. It’s a story of sacrifice, that also touches the issue of knowing who we are.
