Directed by Gino M. Santos with a script written by Jeff Stelton, #Y lets you sneak a peek into the world of the rich, the elite and the privileged young people. Join the adventures and mishaps of four friends as they live the “young, wild and free” energy.
#Y is narrated from the perspective of the main character, Miles the loner (Magalona), with his friends Lia the social climber (Garcia), Janna the liberated (Albert), and Ping the pasaway (Thompson), as they deal with “being in” and insecurities.
