On what should have been just another night on the job, Police Officers Esquivel & Corazon receive a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will soon grab headlines as the biggest police conspiracy in all of Philippine history. The order seems simple enough at first: fix an arrest mix-up by taking the Kuratong Baleleng, a notorious group of robbers, to Camp Crame where they will be let go. But mid-transport, the orders change and Esquivel and his co-policemen find themselves having to choose between carrying out orders or doing what’s right.

Rez Cortez Erupts Into Dance For Your First Look at Khavn’s New Film, ‘Bamboo Dogs’
If you’re confused but vaguely entertained by the sight of a gyrating, wig-wearing Rez Cortez, don’t worry—you aren’t alone. But it may help in your interpretation of this teaser to know that Bamboo Dogs is a crime thriller based on the Kuratong Baleleng rubout massacre of 1995, involving police and members of the Kuratong Baleleng crime syndicate in an alleged shootout that eventually turned out to be a summary execution.
