Imbisibol presents a narrative of daily challenges faced by Filipino migrant workers in Japan during a period when thousands of undocumented workers and overstayers were being deported in response to strict Japanese laws.
It follows the lives of four Filipinos – Linda, Benjie, Manuel and Rodel – who, amidst their individual struggles, are suddenly caught together in an even more complex game of hide and seek where staying invisible is the only way to survive.
As threats of arrest and deportation loom closer and everyone’s future becomes at stake, friendships are tested, loyalties are questioned and values are eroded.

日本を舞台にフィリピン人出稼ぎ労働者の苦悩と悲哀を描く。日本人男性と結婚したリンダ、不法滞在労働者のベンジー、ホストのマニュエル、建設作業員のロデルという4人を通して、移民労働や国際化が抱える問題をベースに「生き抜く」という人間の基本的な欲求そのものを静かに熱く表現していく。本映画祭でもおなじみのファハルド監督が福岡市、北海道・旭川市で撮影を敢行。福岡フィルムコミッション支援作品。
