SUMMARY :In Manila, in the 1980s, Turing Manalastas and his wife Luz, workers in a printing press, lived modestly in the capital of the Philippines plagued by social movements. Pregnant, the young woman is forced to rest, and the couple has additional expenses. Turing comes to an arrangement with his employer, Mr Lim, on condition that he does not join the union which is being set up in the printing press. Despite this, unable to pay for the hospital where Luz gave birth, Turing must reluctantly accept Lando, a childhood friend, to rob Mr. Lim's house.

ABOUT THE FILM : Shot during the regime of President Ferdinand Marcos, against a backdrop of economic decline and corruption, Bayan ko(“My homeland”) is originally the title of a song that has become the hymn of opponents to Marcos. Openly committed film, Bayan ko managed to leave the Philippines illegally to be presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 1984. The work, considered the most committed of its author, Lino Brocka (Manila, Les Insoumis), is a magnificent hymn to the freedom of the Filipino people, but also a nervous and incisive thriller, which is brought to you in Blu-ray and UHD format as a world exclusive in a restored copy.
