NOY (Coco Martin) fakes his credentials to get a job as a TV journalist, desperate to support his family. His assignment is to come up with a documentary on the 2010 Philippines National Elections following the trail of his namesake, the top presidential contender, senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino. Noy’s eyes were opened to the responsibilities of real journalists. Jealous TV presenters investigated Noy’s background. When Noy got fired after his fake identity was exposed, he returned to his home and witnessed his brother being mauled by two thugs. Because he was spotted, Noy was also killed, his body falling into the floodwater.

The film is rated A by the Cinema Evaluation Board of the Philippines and was selected as the Filipino entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 83rd Academy Awards.
