The narcotics division welcomes new member Nina Manigan. For her first mission, she's sent to a slum to dismantle a drug trafficking network.
Erik Matti (Tik Tik: The Aswang Chronicles, The ABC of Death 2, On the Job) is back with a film reminiscent of the glory days of Hong Kong hard-boiled movies. With this seemingly classic script (a battle between the cavalry and the indians), the director finds an ideal playground to give his ideas a free reign, thus offering us one of the toughest and elating films since The Raid. Explosive !
