Tonyo (Joseph Marco) is blind in his left eye and has an amputated left arm. He lives near the home of his former live-in partner, widow Celia (Helga Krapf) who has two children, Angel (Dexie Diaz) and Aries (JC Mantala).

Having built a strong relationship with the family, Tonyo is even treated by Celia’s children like their second father.

Until one day, Tonyo calls on Angel to come to his house. Unknown to her, Tonyo has been sexually repressed for a long time and saw this as an opportunity to release his frustrations. Sadly, the encounter not only resulted in a case of rape but of also murder.
