METRO MANILA

Sean Ellis (THE BROKEN, CASHBACK) tells the story of Oscar Ramirez (Jake Macapagal, KID KULAFU), a down-on-his-luck Filipino farmer who flees the countryside with his family to look for a brighter future in the bustling metropolis of Manila. Oscar believes he has caught a break when he is offered steady work for an armored truck company. But when his seemingly prosperous gig unravels, Oscar realizes the inherent dangers of his new job and gets caught in a complex and perilous scheme of double-dealing. Faced with no other options, Oscar must risk everything to protect what he cares about most — his family. (Note adapted from Oscilloscope.) DIR/SCR/PROD Sean Ellis; SCR Frank E.
