This was an interesting 1998 film I stumbled across on YouTube by Gil Portes about a Filipino boy who leaves home after high school graduation to study in the United States. After seven years she comes back after seven years as a transpinay and declares she is going to stay until her family accepts her..
Of course there is drama. Mom is embarrassed, dad is angry and michelle's best friend Julio, who he knows is gay, suddenly decides he is going to get married.
