I am really curious about this movie until yesterday, I finally able to view the whole movie kahit paputol-putol ang panunuod. Hehehe.

This is a story of a director – Rainer (Kian Cipriano), producer – Bingbong (JM de Guzman), and their production assistant – Jocelyn (Cai Cortez) who want to make an indie film entitled “Walang Wala” which aims to be part of different international film festivals. The story focuses on a mother with 7 kids. Due to poverty, she was forced to sell one of her kids to a foreigner.

They are going to take a shot in a slum area. However, during their meeting, they are trying to review the script and trying to make some modifications like who will be the lead actress, the kid to be sold is a girl or boy, or they even try to make it musical.

When it comes to the lead actress, they are eyeing for Eugene Domingo and they will have a meeting. During their meeting, Eugene gave her suggestions on some scenes and they agreed except for one thing – the septic tank scene. They both agreed to have a double on that scene.

After the meeting, they toured into the location and they found it perfect. Unfortunately, their car was ransacked by the informal settlers.

On the final scene, they are going to film the septic tank scene. Before filming, Eugene keep on talking about the movie Rainier gave to her. Until she accidentally fell down the septic tank which ended taking the scene without any double.

The movie was very simple yet great. Actually, I was thinking that the title goes like that because the setting of the movie they are going to make is in "slum" area. Not until the last scene that Eugene fell into the septic tank.

I kept on laughing as Eugene explains to the three her types of acting according to her experience. However, this must not be watched by kids since there are some explicit dialogues.
