Condo is a new indie movie starring Coco Martin (Siquijor, Ataul For Rent, Nars, Tambolista, Batanes, Tirador) and directed by Martin Cabrera.

Left on his own with no family to lean on, and his girlfriend jilting him for another man, Benjie requests the building administration to let him stay in the guard’s quarters.

Benjie (Coco Martin) encounters a whole new universe of people in his new post. It is a condominium after all, a small community of neighbors and strangers all under one roof. But to Benjie, everyone’s just faces attached to door numbers, doors which are always closed and are rarely open. No one really cares about him. And Benjie only cares about his job even if it is the same tired routine. The building and the job have become the perfect refuge. But when a mysterious intruder and a phone call coming from an empty unit begin taunting him, Benjie fears for the perfectly lonely world he’s built around himself. In the end, he discovers that the answer to the mystery lies not very far from his own shadow. Will he embrace it? Or will the mystery be lost on him forever?
Also starring are Arnold Reyes, Diana Malahay, Avi Siwa, Chx Alcala, Vice Ganda, Jao Mapa, Love Thadani and Perla Bautista.
Condo is now showing at the Indiesine theater 8 of Robinson’s Galleria in Ortigas.
