From 1970 to 1990, many Filipino people have emigrated to Japan. These emigrants were fighting every day to remain in this country with such strict rules. In the middle of their individual struggle, Linda, Benjie, Manuel and Rodel are suddenly all caught in a far more complex hide and seek game, where the only way to remain alive is by becoming invisible. 

“The life of a migrant worker is not simply a life full of heroic deeds, it is a battle for survival. It is a battle not for existence, but for non-existence. This story aims to present the characters as normal people – fighting, striving, struggling everyday to provide for their families, to survive deportation, to thrive against discrimination. The film wants to humanize the migrant workers, to present the personal portraits of the invisible not as superheroes, but as real people with real struggles, with real personal dilemmas.” Lawrence Fajardo
