Leonor Reyes is an important figure in Philippine cinema, a director and screenwriter, who is now retired. She leads an austere life where she can barely pay her household bills.  Her son, Rudy, tries to reason with her so that she will stop withdrawing from reality. But Leonor spends her days watching her old films or buying new action movies and throwing money away. One day a television set falls on her head, leaving her in a coma, in which state she will continue to dream.
