In director Sean Elli's (Cashback) recent film, Metro Manila, Oscar Ramirez and his family leave their meager lives on the rice fields in the northern Philippines to seek a brighter future in the metropolitan city of Manila, but the intensity of the city overwhelms them. The mother in the family gets a job at a shady bar and Oscar starts working at a company providing transportation for valuable goods. The job proves to be very dangerous and mortality is high while the boss requires absolute loyalty.
