Two years in the making, what began in September 2011 as a short film about a couple, unexpectedly and organically evolved into a full length feature film on a friendship between two women. The film later evolved into a story that revolves around the everyday lives of several different women, their families, friends, and lovers.

HE is probably one of the most underrated and most unrecognizable lead guitarists in the Philippines in the past 40 years. However, for those who know him, he is considered an idol and a legend. Pepe Smith calls him “the silent one”. Ely Buendia considers him a mentor. Noel Cabangon has only good words for his unique guitar playing. Lolita Carbon says he plays the guitar from the heart. And Ira Cruz considers him a miracle man on his red guitar. For years, he has showed the music scene his unique way of playing his iconic red Stratocaster guitar. They say he doesn’t know how to play guitar scales but relies more of playing by his heart when he starts plucking his guitar strings. For years also, he has been known as the lead guitarist of the first-ever Pinoy punk rock band The Jerks whom he has been a founding member since 1979. Together with frontman Chickoy Pura, they have been the Glimmer Twins of the Pinoy rock scene. The Mick Jagger-Keith Richards of the Philippines. The Ozzy Osborne-Tony Iommi partnership. The Steven Tyler-Joe Perry duo. However, in 2011, things changed when he was reported to have been kicked out of the band. What really happened? What triggered his dismissal from the band he has been with for the past four decades? This is the story of guitar legend Nitoy Adriano, his life, his music, his art, his red guitar, his strums, his plucks, his riffs, his scales. “Ang Gitaristang Hindi Marunong Magskala” is the story, not only of Nitoy Adriano, but also other forgotten and neglected musicians and artists in the country.
