A rural Filipino family discover the realities of life on the streets of the capital in director Sean Ellis's crime thriller. Forced to find work when the price of rice plummets, provincial farmer Oscar Ramirez (Jake Macapagal) sets out with his wife Mai (Althea Vega) and their two young children for the capital, Manila. Unfortunately, they soon find themselves the targets for a succession of crooks and scammers, leaving them destitute and living in a slum district. Although their fortunes seem set improve when Oscar manages to get a job working as a security guard on armoured cars, he soon finds himself conflicted when his partner Ong (John Arcilla) places temptation in his way by suggesting they steal a shipment of drugs money.
