This gritty drama with a strong moral message brings to life Philippines’ war on drugs - a war that would escalate among the dealers and in the streets of Manila. A top police force is tasked with taking in Abel, one of the most notorious and frightening drug lords in the city. It develops into a violent and lengthy battle in the slums, one that will have serious implications and repercussions for all involved.

Brilliant storytelling is fused with the dark underbelly of Manila street-life - in a return to form by the ever-prolific Mendoza
