    I actually remember this movie when I heard about the killing of Winston Ragos, an army veteran. The man is mentally disturbed because of war trauma and yet the policemen fired two shots making sure he’s killed. What’s happening in the Philippines these days is really alarming. I hope more people can watch this movie.

    I don’t have the courage to watch this as I already read the plot. Although, I really admire the dedication and story entailed in this movie. I remember my mom told me when they watched this in Filipino interpretation, she cried buckets of tears!
