FROM ROBIN TO DANIEL, one of the most loved clans in the Philippine showbiz industry, Padilla clan stars in the action-packed family drama ‘Sa Ngalan Ng Ama, Ina, At Mga Anak.’
To be released by Star Cinema in cooperation with RCP Productions, the movie will hit theaters nationwide starting January 29.
Iconic action superstar Robin teams up with his TV host and actress wife, Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla, and daughter Kylie. Joining the cast are Bella Padilla, young actors RJ and Matt Padilla, and ABS-CBN’s Primetime Teen King Daniel Padilla.
SYNOPSIS (Star Cinema): Set in the turbulent decade of the 70s, the film is based on the true-life story of Ongkoy (Robin Padilla) who was once the leader of the infamous anti-vigilante group “Kuratong Baleleng.” Ongkoy is regarded by many as the “Robinhood” of Mindanao and his passionate and powerful views on family and patriotism remains to be the stuff of legend in Filipino culture even to this very day.
Sa Ngalan Ng Ama, Ina, At Mga Anak aims to address the truth and lies that shrouded the “Kuratong Baleleng” controversy. The movie valiantly proves that love of family and for country will always prevail despite troublesome times. The movie also showcases the Padilla clan at its very best: in the action genre that endeared them to the entire nation for so many years.
In a statement, the producers added, “This action drama will surely touch the hearts of every Filipino saying that each person can be a hero not only to the country but also to friends and family as well; to the universal law that no bad deed shall go unpunished. At the very core of the movie are the undying spirits of both truth and justice that celebrate the transformative power of good deeds done with great passion and good faith.”
