Angeli Bayani for all the awards!! She was just so good that it felt like I was watching (and personally knew) Mercy the entire time.
I really liked how the first half made the audience go through the entire investigation process. I felt embarrassed and violated and I almost fainted when she had that actual (?) blood test.
The second half felt a bit aimless and too on the nose with its constant explanations (at least now I know the adoption guidelines for an abandoned baby). It was unfortunate that it didn’t know when and how to end the movie.
Also, that ensemble with some of the most amazing character actors in Philippine cinema! Wow!!
