The director of Birdshot (NYAFF 2017) sets his dark neo-noir thriller amidst Manila’s ongoing war on drugs. Told straight from the gut, it follows teenage orphan Toto (Timothy Castillo), who becomes entangled with police, drug dealers, mercenaries, and street gangs. He is rescued by death squad member Irma, who takes out drug dealers for the local police on her motorbike. She brings him on as her apprentice, and an unexpected mother-son bond develops. But as the underworld consumes them, all relationships suddenly seem disposable. New York Premiere
