Having strung along with delinquent friends to a home robbery that ends in a wealthy old woman's death, Manila slum youth Sonny is too stunned to get away while the others elude police capture. He's duly convicted of murder - worse, as an adult, since the orphan boy's birth certificate was lost in a fire, and his callous foster parents are nowhere to be found. Thrown into lockup among hardened lifers, the terrified 16-year-old soon finds himself at the mercy of various strong-arm cliques on death row. He's courted by booty-bandit Gabino, who plots to seize cell block "mayor" Mio's status as chief executor of the in-house drug trade controlled by rich prisoner Assunta. A few figures take a more protective than exploitive interest in the new fish. But Sonny's best ally, it turns out, is old-school gangster Sinat, who at 77 is still gruff and imposing enough to survive outside all the block's warring factions.

Pure Philippino soap.
1 August 2002 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

Seen as part of the 2002 Melbourne International Film Festival Program this film failed to live up to its promise of offering real insights into Manilla prisons and the plight of the 16 year old imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. Poor scripting and production destroyed the credibility of the plot which at times looked like the very worst of TV soaps. Many festival patrons walked out-some didn't undoubtedly hoping for some reward for sitting out the movie but unfortunately the credibility of the film didn't improve as the producer attempted to convince us that the jail inmates behaviour focussed on a cocktail of violence and murder alternating with tearful prisoners embracing and farewelling the next man to be executed !
