    "Seeking a brighter future in megacity Manila, Oscar Ramirez and his family flee their impoverished life in the rice fields of the northern Philippines. But the sweltering capital's bustling intensity quickly overwhelms them, and they fall prey to the rampant manipulations of its hardened locals. Oscar catches a lucky break when he's offered steady work for an armored truck company and gregarious senior officer Ong takes him under his wing. Soon, though, the reality of his work's mortality rate and the murky motives of his new partner force Oscar to confront the perils he faces in his new job and life."

    I want to see this, but we'll probably wait until it is on DVD as it's not showing in many places. Had to watch Rush and Insidious 2 instead! Managed to avoid Diana despite the wife's enthusiasm to see it.

    I watched this recently on filmfour. Really enjoyed it but a harsh reality check showing the darker side of inner city living :(

    I haven't seen this.. I'll get a copy. Actually I did see a good movie 'Closer to home' - english/tagolog - about the culture clash when a guy takes a filipina back to his home in NY. Its well worth a look to those who haven't seen it. For those of us in cil-western relationships -indeed close to home.. :)
