The story of Manuel and Dado, two Filipino migrant workers,who discover a discarded sofa. This transforms their normal Sunday routine.into a tale of adventure, perseverance and self-discovery.

"Charming, effective and with a breezy air of joie de vivre, PINOY SUNDAY is a delight from start to finish. Like its characters, it is a film of simple tastes and manageable ambitions, and Ho, together with co-writer Ajay Balakrishnan, does a grand job of telling a very particular story in a way that speaks to us all, regardless of our nationality or background. We all have our commitments and burdens, our temptations and struggles, our friendships, passions and dreams. In short we all have our sofas to carry, but what is important is that we know when to lift, when to push and when to just sit down for a moment and catch" - Twitch Film Review ourbreath. PINOY SUNDAY articulates this beautifully.
