The story follows Intoy (Bables), who takes care of his parents when his sister moved out to work overseas and eventually marry a foreigner.
Since he lives in a remote area in Northern Samar, the only way he could contact his sister is by going to strange rock formations on the island, a place where a cellphone can get a signal from network providers.
Intoy is later torn between staying in the island and pursuing his ambitions by leaving for Manila to get work.
‘Signal Rock’ was the Philippine entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards, but it failed to get a nomination.
Christian Bables won “Best Main Actor” for the film at the 2018 Hanoi International Film Festival.
