On the Job

When a prominent drug dealer is murdered, police Sergeant Acosta (Joey Marquez) and Federal Agent Coronel (Piolo Pascual) lead the investigation, but the trail goes immediately cold. What they discover is a conspiracy of massive scale: the killers (Joel Torre and Gerald Anderson) are inmates, temporarily released from jail as assassins before returning to incarceration. Caught in a web of deceit and corruption, Acosta and Coronel are on a collision course with the government officials who will do anything to silence them - and no one is safe. Breakout hit crime thriller from the Philippines is "dark, hellish and brilliant" (Twitch).
