Before coming back to Guam for a visit, James begins to wonder more about life after having a talk with God in his dreams. He discusses with a friend to get his take, then returns home only to see his brother distraught by recent events of the island. He spends his time home enjoying conversation with more friends by getting their ideas on the state of the island and on life in general. Before leaving, he hopes to help his brother find a better way to deal with the controversies that the island faces today, and to remember what God smelled like in his dream.

“The Moon is smiling at me again tonight.” So begins the journey of Rick Dueñas, a 26-year old Guam native living off the island for close to a decade. After graduating from college in California, he moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of a common dream, yet has grown to appreciate other dreams, both in his thoughts and reality. Thanks to his studies, Rick strongly identifies himself as a multicultural person, and finds passion in expressing that awareness to the world via his traveling blog. It seems that he’s got his life all figured out, but a particular girl(s) and a recent trip home faces him against his biggest complexity…love. And as these “coming-of-age” circumstances succeed to be troubling, Rick strives to find balance and truth with the help from his philosophical mentor, hooligan friends, and another unlikely companion…the Moon.
