The story of a young provincial named Julio Madiaga who goes to the city to look for his lost love, Ligaya Paraiso. From its opening shot of littered sidewalks to its final one of Julio, cowering at the bottom of a dead-end alley, it is a series of voluptuous images charged with urgency and captured raw and honest.
