A poor Filipino woman (Assunta de Rossi) tries to take care of her mentally handicapped sister amid the poverty and violence of the shantytown in which they live.
Vanessa is a cosmetics consultant who is forced to care for her troubled and mentally challenged sister after their mother’s death. Her hustler boyfriend, Olivier, seems unreliable and Vanessa soon abandons him for Uno, a liberal and caring substitute. But Uno isn’t exactly as he seems. Set during the reign of Joseph Estrada in the Philippines, the film offers up a society in hellish microcosm.
