Sleepless (synopsis)

Gem (24) and Barry (30) are two lonely people who can’t sleep. They spend hours lying awake while everyone else is asleep. They are both stuck in a rut, both of them working dead-end jobs at a call center. They explore the city at night and find ways to kill time. Though there’s a certain loneliness when you’re awake in the dead of night, there’s also a bond that develops. Gem and Barry talk about zombies, love and everything in between. Together they fight the loneliness that keeps them awake. In the end, they realize, that even though you cannot cure insomnia, you just need someone to lean on until the sun comes up.

According to Wikipedia, the modern day Flash Mob happened in 2003 in Manhattan, NY.  This  1980 video somehow debunks that piece of information and points to a group doing it in Makati City, the financial capital of the Philippines.

So, if anyone gets to talk about flash mobs. Tell them it all started here in the Philippine islands
