While working in Dubai, he experienced strange occurrences that made him distrustful to everyone including himself. With the help of Mang Gerry, his roommate, who seems to be aware of what’s happening to Samuel. Samuel and Mang Gerry’s meets its end with a very peculiar revelation that makes the embodiment of “Lamentasyon”. What lies ahead on this character-driven drama set in the formidable risky dilemma of a modern day in Dubai?
