Taking their two daughters and small cargo of belongings, Oscar (Macapagal) and Mai Ramirez (Vega) up sticks from the poverty-stricken rice fields of the northern Philippines and head for the vastness of Manila. Life, there, is far from simple.
Brit filmmaker Sean Ellis does terrific work balancing the disparate elements of his crime-laced drama. Recommended.
