113 minutes

The paths of two Manila grandmothers cross when the grandson of one is murdered by the grandson of the other. Slice-of-life melodrama shot almost entirely in handheld camera on location in Manila, avoiding the pitfalls such a story might encounter by allowing the plot and the performances to lead rather than the style.
