BaRBi d’ wONdER BEki
In his latest film, Barbi D’ Wonder Beki, Paolo Ballesteros plays the lead role as the handsome Billy, a closet gay trapped in an ultra-macho family setting. His life as a mansion security guard for an international businessman is equally restricting.
In his moments alone, he’s fantasizing about being just like his superhero idol, Wonder Woman.
Billy will be given that superhero chance later, when he tries to redeem himself after having been set up as murderer. In the meantime, he keeps himself out of harm’s way by working in the one place where he feels safe—the Barbitolome Beauty Salon, where he will meet its catty owner, a character played by Joey de Leon.
How, in a series of funny twists and turns, Billy’s life will get a makeover is something we’re leaving for viewers to see.•
