Storyline

Fredo (Cesar Montano) is a fisherman who has endured more than his share of hardship in life; his wife and child both perished in a boating accident, and today Fredo approaches each trip to the sea with the angry determination of a man out for revenge. Fredo commands a crew of young people from poor families as he takes his rattletrap ship into the ocean in search of fish that live along the reefs, snaring catch with an illegal netting system. Not all of Fredo's youthful sailors are willing to put up with his abusive arrogance, however, and even his father Dado (Pen Medina) and close friend Botong (Jhong Hilario) have grown weary of Fredo's tirades. Fredo's body is beginning to betray him as well, and as he and his crew damage the sea's reef beds in search of fish, no one is certain how much longer he will be able to continue.

a great story of survival
8 January 2002 | by (manila, philippines) – See all my reviews



I'm a big advocate of Abaya's films, and in this movie she had given her best with regards to the cinematography. I like the way she captured the underwater scenes. Cesar Montano,I might say he is a very

versatile actor, giving his character a realistic soul.

The whole movie is worth watching,it depicts of a story of a man who used children as his source of living through reef hunting. The film showed the beautiful and rich seas of the Philippines, especially in the Visayan region.

Congratulations to the whole cast and crew.
