Alternate Titles: Matangtubig
Therese Malvar, Lance Raymundo, Amante Pulido, Star Orjaliza
The routine of the quaint rural town of Matangtubig is broken by the discovery of a girl’s remains defiled in an open grass field and a report of another girl missing. The people call for justice and a search ensues to find the culprits. This catches the attention of the national media, which sensationalizes the entire town, putting it on trial for the secrets it keeps.
Meanwhile, Homil Ricarte (Amante Pulido), a local fisherman, struggles with his conscience as fear prevents him from confessing he was a witness to the abduction of the two girls. He starts to grow anxious and overly conscious whenever they are mentioned, much to the confusion of his wife, Vivian (Star Orjaliza) and daughter, Miriam (Helen Orjaliza).
As the investigation starts to dry up with no witness or lead, the townsfolk become entities of decency and sham. So to divert the attention away from the crime, they go through with the yearly festival by the lake, unaware that the sleeping evil has awakened to claim them.
