With a detached workmanlike precision, Director Cierlito Tabay dives right into the subculture of the backyard gunmaking industry in Danao, Cebu, eschewing voiceover narration and letting the power of the issue speak for itself. The film effectively depicts a city torn between supporting the craft that it’s been known for (in the process breathing life to its economy) and enforcing the law against loose firearms.
