Sixteen-year-old Angelo moved to Toronto from the Philippines to join his mother, who has been living and working in Canada for most of his life. Adjusting to a new country isn’t easy, but when Angelo’s mother takes him to the Filipino Community Centre he meets Marcus who has shared the same experience.

At school, Marcus introduces Angelo to Felix and Darius. The boys quickly show Angelo how no one respects poor Filipino immigrants and lure him into running petty thefts as a way of evening the score. But when the group is faced with consequences will Angelo have the courage to go against his friends and set things right?
