The film centers on the family of Rosa (powerfully played by Jose) who owns a small community convenient store connected to their home in the slums of Manila. Together with her husband, Nestor, they use their convenient store as cover-up for selling illegal narcotic, Methamphetamines. Their fate changes one Saturday night when their neighbor Bong-Bong, who works as fly-by-night parking attendant, begs her to sell him a small pack of Methamphetamine without knowing that it’s a play for a pending buy-bust operation by the policemen waiting outside the community.
