The Christmas season is a time of gift-giving and Christmas decors. “Pera-perahang Lata” ("Penny from the Tin Can") takes place at this valuable season of delight. however, for Nilo, the idealism of a youthful man is slowly being succumbed by disillusionment. And this film traces the plight of this man who is trying to make up for his mistake and inconsiderate moves towards a needy stranger, but he ends up seeing another tragedy from it.

“Pera-perahang Lata” ("Penny from the Tin Can") explores the many facets of a struggling life in a world that is full of unpredictable moments — where some things are really beyond one’s control. And this film exposes both the rich culture of the able Filipinos and the struggle of lower-middle to lower-class Filipinos in the Manila commune set during the Pinoy Christmas season — amidst the exciting tradition of gift-giving, caroling, and the “Simbang Gabi.”
