For the first time since immigrating to the United States over a decade ago, Jhett Tolentino decides to visit his hometown of Iloilo City in the Philippines. He traces his steps from his slum-stricken birthplace to the schools he attended.
Jhett always thought there is something bigger for him outside of Iloilo. He ventures into different careers until he finally finds his purpose in the Great White Way – not onstage but on the business side as the only Filipino producer on Broadway.
Witness Jhett’s journey in this documentary as he shares his triumphant immigrant story and captures the special moments of his homecoming that is full of surprises, love, hope and inspiration.
