i don't know if this flick is appropriately titled! the flick reflects a microcosm of Filipino diaspora. here we find 2 brothers who live in an island paradise who can live off the abundance of the sea, finds themselves living by Manila bay harbor which is a watery wasteland cum sewage disposal. scrapes for a living, falls in love with a prostitute harassed by a cripple who happens to be the 'don' of criminality! and both of the bros. die in the process, how anti climactic! meanwhile prostitute with baby in hand moves to the island where the two bros. come from. the movie also starts with some weird cult like characters which i don't know where it should really falls in the story. note to writer, you could have pulled the story without that chapter!
