Inspired by true events, the film follows a woman who explores Manila's underworld in search of answers regarding her husband's murder. Arthur Acuña, Alessandra de Rossi and Jake Macapagal star.

WATCH LIST is set against the drug wars in the Philippines. After her husband is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Maria is left to fend for her three children in a police state.
