Metro Manila Trailer (2013)

Trailer for Metro Manila.

A naive farming couple from the picturesque but impoverished rice-growing region of Banaue, northern Philippines, come to grief in the crime-ridden capital in this polished and surprising mixture of melodrama and heist flick from UK director Sean Ellis ("Cashback"). When their rice harvest fails, honest but dirt-poor Oscar Ramirez and sultry wife Mai decide to seek a better life for themselves and two young daughters in Manila. But they guilelessly fall prey to the first conman they meet. Stripped of their savings, they are left without a roof over their heads.

While the pregnant Mai finds employment among the bar girls/sex workers at Charlie’s, Oscar happens on a position as an armored truck driver through the favors of soon-to-be partner Ong. Naturally Ong has ulterior motives, but several inventive and unexpected plot twists result in the desperate Oscar coming up with a plan of his own.
