Abused and battered wife, Joy lives in Manila, with her six-year-old daughter Angel and her husband, Dante, a small-time criminal. As so often in the past, Dante comes home drunk at night and beats Joy brutally. This time, he also hurts Angel. Joy grabs her daughter and flees to the local police post to finally get him sent to jail. Justice, Joy learns, takes time at best and is impossible to get at worst. Not without reason, she feels that she and her daughter are increasingly under threat.

​ ★★★★ "Empathy and urgency in convincing domestic abuse drama" THE GUARDIAN ★★★★ "Filled with strong performances... It is reminiscent of other recent understated female tragedies, such as Never Rarely Sometimes Always and The Assistant." LITTLE WHITE LIES
