The Philippines' biggest popstar has been kidnapped, and it's up to a ragtag squad of fans to bring her back.
They'll brave rooftop chases, knife fights in the back of speeding jeepneys and underwater shoot-outs to liberate their idol from a conspiracy that threatens to tear their country apart.
And then there's the music: this blistering action epic is set to 40 years of Filipino pop, vaulting from 1970s peace anthems to contemporary Filipino hip-hop, from viral YouTube techno to iconic Pinoy power ballads.
A neon-drenched action adventure set in a nation on the brink, Are You Ready To Take The Law Into Your Own Hands has zero political relevance to current events. None. At all.
