Hendrix dreams of hip-hop greatness, but he’s spiraling down a rabbit-hole of crime and poverty until he meets Doc, an old poet still haunted by his martial law past. Can they turn each other’s lives around before they’re swallowed by their circumstance? RESPETO is a celebration of the underground Pinoy hip-hop world and how we find the words to find ourselves.

“Respeto offers a gripping if sometimes slightly melodramatic look at the chaotic clash of values shaping the Philippines today.”

– Clarence Tsui,  The Hollywood Reporter

“..[A] captivating look at the bonds that bring people together, and the dangerous politics that rip communities apart.”

– Courtney Small, In The Seats
