Banned in its native Philippines, Midnight Dancers tells the story of three brothers who work as exotic dancers and prostitutes in a Manila gay club. Joel has been selling himself for seven years and at 23 is ready to quit. Dennis has joined a violent street gang and deliberately flirts with danger. Sonny, the youngest brother, returns from the University to find work, but soon is forced to join his brothers on the stage and in the back rooms. As their precarious world begins to spiral out of control, the brothers are soon on the run with blood on their hands. Shot in Manila with a young cast of superb newcomers, Midnight Dancers reveals a sensuous, erotic and dangerous world.
