Trailer for The Woman in the Septic Tank.

Film chronicles a day in the life of three ambitious, passionate but misguided filmmakers as they set out to do a quick pre-prod at Starbucks, a courtesy call to their lead actress, Eugene Domingo, and an ocular inspection of their film’s major location, the Payatas dumpsite. Director Rainier, producer Bingbong and production assistant Jocelyn are well-to-do, well educated film school graduates who are dead set on making an Oscar worthy film. Like most filmmakers they know, they have devised a screenplay that will show the real essence of our culture: poverty.

In the course of one day, they brainstorm and exhaust all possible treatment of their project: the story of Mila (Eugene Domingo), a mother from the slums, who out of desperation to survive has sold her child to a pedophile. Soon enough, they are faced with reality as they come face to face with the real effects of their chosen subject. This film is a comedy about misguided ambitions, the art of making art and the romanticization of poverty.
