Rey played a superhero character called “Milkyboy” in a milk commercial as a child in the 1980s. Fast forward 25 years, he is now working in a declining advertising company with no bright future – nor love life – to speak of. He also can’t seem to break free from the stigma of being a former child star. Can Rey overcome his inner demons and prove his worth to everyone, including himself?
