Leading director Brillante Ma Mendoza presents a social critique of contemporary problems in the Philippines through his films. Ma' Rosa (Jaclyn Jose, Best Actress at 2016 Cannes Film Festival) is the matriarch of a family struggling to keep their small Manila convenience store afloat. As a means of survival, Rosa has diversified the family business by venturing into the street-drug trade. When Rosa and her husband are arrested, they face corrupt cops who expect a bribe before setting them free. Rosa and the couple’s children set out to raise the funds, encountering resistance from friends and relatives.
