Synopsis:

In 2025, a group of kids—members of the Kostka gang—terrorize the slums of Manila. They live beyond the law and rule the underbelly of the Philippines. After a failed bank robbery, the dangerous game comes to an end as the gang’s leader, Boss, is sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment. When the Boss gets out of prison and reunites with the surviving members, mysterious things begin happening—as the Kostkas begin to disappear one by one.
