Acclaimed director Lino Brocka and screenwriter Mario O’ Hara tell a powerful story about small town injustice. Junior (Christopher de Leon) is a privileged young man living in a small, devoutly Catholic provincial town. His father is a womanizer, his mother a materialistic shrew. His friends spend their days tormenting the village idiot, Kuala (Lolita Rodriguez), and the upstanding women of the town shun local leper Berto (Marion O’ Hara) as they go about their charitable work.

Increasingly alienated and disgusted by the hypocrisy of the townsfolk, Junior finds himself identifying more and more with Berto and Kuala. He tries to make things right for these marginalized characters but his attempts are met with futility at every turn and inevitably, tragedy strikes.

This landmark film is considered by many to be one of the most important in Philippine cinema. It is a scathing social commentary on humanity at its most shameful and on the consequences of turning a blind eye on the more difficult realities of life around us. It garnered six FAMAS awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (for de Leon), Best Actress (for Rodriguez)
