A desperate family from the northern Philippines leave the rice fields to seek a better life in the city. Within a week of moving into the capital, they are struggling to feed their children. When the father at last lands a job with a security firm, he thinks he has made the right move, but a high mortality rate among his co-workers and some shady business dealings at work raise his doubts. Metro Manila is an intense and emotionally gripping crime thriller set in the colourful squalor of modern Manila.
