SYNOPSIS

Dante, a small-time petty crook, comes home with alcohol-fuelled rage and viciously attacks his wife, Joy, and their six-year-old daughter, Angel. To protect herself and Angel, Joy stabs Dante in the arm before fleeing to the nearest police station to file a complaint. At the station, she is humiliated and threatened by law enforcers, and soon realises that finding justice is an uphill battle.

Building on the audacious promise of his short films, Raymund Ribay Gutierrez crafts a gripping commentary on how pre-existing patriarchal structures continue to endanger women’s safety and well-being. Lensed with a captivating urgency and tense atmosphere, Verdict is a film that takes nothing for granted.
