What constitutes the line between enjoying sex and doing sex for money?
An 18-year old sex virgin boatman, Alfred, shares his journey to discovering life's pleasures as he battles his fears and hangups.
Set in a charming provincial town in the Philippines, where the river and the hanging bridge are equally popular to the tourists as the young boatmen, SAGWAN explores the emotions of Alfred as he reluctantly gives in to the awakening of the flesh that his peers indulge with wild abandon.
The smooth-running river of his romantic relationship with his mute girlfriend Cecilia makes a turbulent turn as his discovery of his family's dark secrets awakens him from his innocent beginnings.
One unexpected chance makes him realize that ultimate pleasure lies beyond who you are and who you're with.
