(Philippines, 2013, 91 mins, DCP)

Based on the alarmingly true story of a nine-year-old girl who was impregnated by her father and had the baby, Joseph Israel Laban’s film gets to the core of a peculiarly Filipino tangle of Catholicism, superstition and untamed desires. Soberly made but still shocking, and brutally realistic in its conclusions.
