Sa Aking Pagkakagising Mula Sa Kamulatan is a full length digital picture that takes a realistic glimpse of the Filipino youth in the gulf of Manila's urban gullies.
It tackles socially-related issues surrounding the intersecting lives of marginalized ordinary Manileños.
Presented in a staggered vista of correlated events, the movie explores the day-to-day survival of the characters and their broken dreams, pent-up anger and abnormal sexuality.
Sa Aking Pagkakagising Mula Sa Kamulatan conveys its message powerfully in a daring and unapologetic way-- using street lingo to it's fullest.
The story unfolds one night when Rey, the docile and cowardly teenage student is mauled as he passes by a drinking spree of street toughies: Pogie, Jopet, Kahoy and Taba.
The four release their sadistic energy on him, transforming his handsome face into a bloody mess.
Braggart Pogi hates Rey for the simple reason that he secretly loves Rey's girlfriend, Angel, who has a clueless father.
Jopet, a self-claimed police asset, finds Rey a convenient substitute for pouring out his hatred for his handler, Lakay, a sadistic cop.
The vagrant baker/snatcher Kahoy and Taba, the bum, join in for the sake of camaraderie.
While Rey lies unconscious on the pavement, the group continues drinking as if nothing happened.
Some neighbors try to intervene, but reluctant to get involved.
Rey regains consciousness and finds his tormentors drunk and asleep.
What happens next is anybody's guess.
Directed by Ato Bautista.
