The year is 1999. Everyone is anxious about the new millennium and the world ending in the year 2000. But amid the chaos, a young woman from Manila continues to work and hustle harder for her dreams.
Meet Alma (Azi Acosta), a sex worker.
Having no parents and no one to care for her, Alma has been supporting herself and has worked at a men’s club for the longest time.
Over the years, she has catered to many men, but she has three regular customers who she fondly calls by their nicknames: Tiger Joe, Kabayo, and Puppy Dog.
Tiger Joe is Mr. Lopez (Mon Confiado), a rich lawyer and a sadist who enjoys role-playing when making love.
Kabayo is Mr. JC (Josef Elizalde), a bank executive known for being well-endowed.
Puppy Dog is Miguel (Gold Aceron), a student who has developed feelings for Alma and sleeps with her without the need to pay.
With all the money she earns and receives from different men, Alma is now living comfortably and unapologetically. But her peace is about to be disturbed when a middle-aged woman named Sheila (Jaclyn Jose) appears, claiming to be her mother.
Will Alma find in her heart to forgive and accept Sheila? Why did Sheila return? Can Sheila help Alma heal from the pain of her past?
A film by McArthur C. Alejandre and written by a multi-awarded and renowned Filipino screenwriter, National Artist Ricky Lee, “Call Me Alma” streams exclusively on Vivamax starting September 1.
