Here’s the plot (from Wikipedia.com)

Horacia Somorostro (played by Charo Santos-Concio) was released in 1997 after being imprisoned for a crime she did not commit. Although Somorostro reunites with her daughter, she learns that her husband is now deceased and her son is missing. She realized that a thing remains unchanged – the power and privilege of the elite. This belief is cemented when Somorostro later found out that her former rich lover, Rodrigo Trinidad was the one who framed her for a crime. She learns that Trinidad is forced to stay within his house like his friends due to kidnapping incidents targeting the rich. To the ruling class, the kidnappings are the most serious problem in the country’s history. Somorostro begins to plot her revenge amidst the crisis.

Aside from Charo Santos-Concio, the film also stars Shamaine Buencamino, Nonie Buencamino, Michael De Mesa, Mae Paner, Jean Judith Javier, Marj Lorico, Mayen Estañero, Paolo Rodriguez, Romelyn Sale, Cacai Bautista, Jo-Ann Requiestas, Julius Empredo and featuring John Lloyd Cruz.
