Two men from different backgrounds team up to win a billiards challenge in this underdog sports drama from the Philippines. Pakners stars real-life pool legend Efren “Bata” Reyes as a man who’s just been conned out of his savings when he meets up with a Jeepney driver (Fernando Poe Jr.) who has a plan for how the two of them can find riches: billiards. Reyes’ character proves a natural at the sport, and the two work their way to the national championships, where it’s a do-or-die faceoff with some of the country’s best players.
