Unlocked 4: Greg & Harold

Greg, a philosophy professor, lives alone in his old apartment in Metro Manila. During the lockdown, a young man Harold shows up at his door and wants to borrow his bathroom to have a shower. Greg doesn’t know how to refuse Harold and feels his privacy invaded at first, but they open up to each other after they start a conversation.


Unlocked 5: Ivan & Jack

Ivan is desperate to raise money to bring his mother Jack back home from Switzerland. He uses his body to get the attention of his clients as the pandemic makes it difficult for him to get decent job opportunities. When he goes viral online for his ‘noble’ reason, he examines his real motivation behind his actions?


Unlocked 6: Kyle & Kyle

Kyle is trying to finish his screenplay while on quarantine. He starts to feel and see weird things in his apartment, even facing his exact facsimile. Is the double a projection of himself, a figment of his wild imagination or a manifestation of his psychological breakdown? What follows is a spiral between fantasy and reality.


From acclaimed Filipino director Adolfo Alix Jr. comes the first series about gay relationships during quarantine times. An anthology series that explores our need to connect during the worst of times.
