Here's everything you need to know about it.
'Nobody Knows I'm Here' is slated to premiere on June 24 on Netflix.
The film revolves around Memo, a former child singer, who went into hiding following a traumatic experience from his childhood. As a chubby young boy with a beautiful voice, he was forced to sing from behind the curtains rather than take the center stage. However, when a pretty boy who fit the conventional criteria with his star quality became the focus of everyone's attention, Memo was left with a deep mark that followed him into adulthood. Years later, he has indefinitely retired from singing and lives on a remote sheep farm on a faraway Chilean island with his uncle.
As reclusive as can be, he avoids interacting with visitors but hones his glittery flair to make stage costumes. His life changes prospectively with Martita's entry as slowly starts to ease Memo out of his despair with her company. Besotted with his voice, she records him and posts the video on social media, so the world can hear his melodic voice again. The video becomes an overnight sensation, garnering one million in views, and Memo attracts the attention that he has always craved, yet wanted to escape from, all his life. Memo has now taken center stage, but how will he navigate through this not-so-new phase of his life? Will he be able to stop thinking about the past, and people want to listen to his beautiful voice?
