Brillante Mendoza Presents: AMO
Cannes Film Festival accredited director Brillante Mendoza brings another masterpiece with “AMO” starring Derek Ramsay.
AMO is a 12-episode drama series that is set on the background of the Philippine government’s war on drugs and the rampant vigilantism against suspected illegal drug personalities. The story will follow the life of drug dealer Joseph who is a high school student peddling crystal meth, locally known as “shabu” to his fellow gang members and how he helped spread the illegal drugs in the community. There will be pursuit operations by the police, involvement of law enforcers to the drug trade, and how Joseph is led to the bigger crime scheme by his relatives. Each episode will be a gripping representation of the illicit drug trade in the different areas of society.
