ASINTADO (2014) - Aiko Melendez & Gabby Eigenmann

When a 16-year-old kid botches a drug courier job and is facing imminent murder, his mother pushes his mentally-challenged brother to kill the drug dealer in order to save him.

Intoy is a special child who has an astonishing skill in marksmanship. Living in a world of his own, he obsessively picks up stones and arranges them neatly in a corner of the shanty where he lives with his widowed mother Julia and brother Miguel.

Bibiclat is a remote barrio in Nueva Ecija. It has been observing an old religious tradition of ‘taong putik’ (man covered with mud). Once a quiet and peaceful place, it is now rife with drugs and crime. Controlled by the cruel and unscrupulous Carias, he makes a business out of the feast by selling the rights to cover a fabricated ‘taong putik’ festival.

In the middle of preparations for the town fiesta, Miguel is tempted by Carias to accept a drug courier job that goes terribly wrong.
