Babae Sa Breakwater

2004 NR

In this bittersweet survival tale, director Mario O'Hara paints a realistic portrait of the cadgers, prostitutes and scavengers who dwell along Manila Bay's breakwater scratching out a living. Fleeing from gangsters, brothers Basilio (Kristoffer King) and Buboy (Al Cris Galura) settle along the jetty, but trouble crops up when Basilio gets involved with a diseased hooker (Katherine Luna) whose existence is stoked by liquor and drugs.
