Description
dir. Jason Paul Laxamana
The superb comic actress Pokwang stars as a grouchy cook who is about to close down her restaurant at the foot of Mount Arayat due to a lack of customers.

When a mysterious American teenager named Mercury appears out of nowhere and begs for work, a strange relationship develops. Mercury Is Mine is a touching, offbeat, and often funny drama, as well as a not-so-veiled commentary on American colonialism. (2016, 97 min)
