A poetic, searingly realistic drama/heist movie from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker, Sean Ellis. Seeking a better life for himself and his family, Oscar Ramirez decides to move from the poverty stricken rice fields of the northern Philippine mountain ranges and head to the capital, Metro Manila. Whilst there, he falls foul of various city inhabitants whose manipulative ways are a daily part of their ongoing survival. Oscar manages to land a job as a driver for an armoured truck company and is befriended by his senior officer, Douglas Ong. Before long, it becomes apparent that Ong has been planning for the arrival of someone like Oscar for some time.
