  • A police sergeant and a federal agent uncover governmental corruption while investigating a series of assassinations committed by convicts who were temporarily released from prison by high-level politicians to do their murderous bidding in this crime thriller from the Philippines. A powerful drug dealer has been murdered, and now Sergeant Joaquin Acosta (Joey Marquez) is determined to catch the killer. What Acosta fails to realize as his investigation hits a dead end, however, is that the hit was carried out by two men who are already behind bars. Meanwhile, General Pacheco (Leo Martinez) tasks powerful Congressman Manrique (Michael De Mesa) with recruiting his son-in-law Francis (Piolo Pascual), a federal agent, to be the supervisor of the investigation. Increasingly suspicious of his superiors, Acosta remains on the case while striving to convince agent Francis that the investigation has been compromised.
