We can see her giving a spirited rendition of the song but we only see the eyes, or lips or hands of those around her, except for Ricky Davao, to whom Nora is obviously addressing her song. In the next scene, we see her entering the city jail. Nora is Angela, an orphan who falls for a married man and is later accused of trying to kill his wife. But the film is more than just her story.
It is an indictment of a prison system that instead of helping in the rehabilitation of inmates only make them worse. Angela meets several other characters. Viring Perla Bautista loses her sanity when her daughter the product of a liaison with a prison guard is forcibly taken away from her.
Yolly Shyr Valdez is a teenager committed by her own mother for delinquency. Prison guards take advantage of the inmates. Ex-officio lawyers assigned to help them for free do not really care even if they rot in jail. Inmates prey on one another, specially on newcomers whom the more hardened ones rob and mandhandle when they get it. The very valid theme is spiced up with scenes aimed to make the audience sit up and notice, like Juliet seducing her guard and leaving him handcuffed on the bed inside a mausoleum or Angela giving birth at the Manila Zoo.
If the cinematography of this film were given more careful attention it would have been more outstanding in its totality. As it is, several scenes are so ill-lighted they give you eyes-strain. But the acting cannot be faulted. Nora Aunor gives a very moving performance, notwithstanding that zoo childbirth scene specially engineered to endear her to her fans. Formidable support is given by Gina Alajar, Maya Valdes, Perla Bautista, Celia Rodriguez as a mother who prostitutes herself to male inmates just to earn money she could send to her son who later also ends up in prison , and Marites Gutierrez truly a revelation, specially in that crying scene with her real life mom, Gloria Romero.
Lualhati Bautista has written a difficult script with a lot of characters in it and she succeeds quite well. The commercial elements are carefully integrated like Nora getting back at Maya with a piece of wood after the death of Maritess, and Perla stabbing the guard who has been oppressing them. We believe it should have been the other way around.
