Praybeyt Benjamin

The storyline is about a gay soldier

vlcsnap-2011-12-29-20h00m23s101Benjamin “Benjie” Santos VIII  comes from a long line of warriors and soldiers. His grandfather, Benjamin Santos VI, expects him to be in the army and to be like his ancestors who fought every battle in the country. He lives with his parents and two sisters named Jesamine (Angelie Urquico) and Anjamin (Abby Bautista). His father, Benjamin VII, gave up being a military soldier to be what he wants to be, a scientist and an inventor. Benjie’s grandfather did not agree with his decision, so they were forced to leave his grandfather’s house and to never come back. They now live in a cramped house, where they started a new life. His father, as expected, followed what makes him happy. He invented gadgets and unique deadly weapons. Some examples are the Fart-gun, or theUtot-gun in Tagalog, a fan that shoots bullets, and a tiara that can kill thousands of people.

A few years later they were invited to his grandfather’s 75th birthday by a relative. His grandfather finds out Benjie is gay. They were asked to leave and to never show their faces again for they are a disgrace to the Santos family.

When a civil war in the Philippines breaks out, Benjie is forced to enlist in place of his ailing father, who was said to have high blood pressureand diabetes. After a long time training, Benji’s group was to be dissolved for being not good enough. His group decides to train at night, and show their improvement in the morning. A rival group, incensed with constantly losing to Benjie’s group during training, sought to reveal Benjie’s sexuality by getting Benjie drunk and filming a sex video of him.
