Ronwaldo Martin, Kapamilya actor Coco Martin’s younger brother, appeared in another festival film sometime in March this year and he’s back on the big screen this month via the coming-of-age story of a fish pen boy who is learning to dream big. The film is entitled Baklad and directed by  Topel Lee. It is an official ToFarm Film Festival 2017 finalist.

In the film, Ronwaldo is reunited with Elora Españo, his former leading lady in another independent film. Tutoy as played by Ronwaldo had a sexual awakening from his boss’ new lover. Driven by the strong emotions, he starts to find ways to elope with the woman. His dreams will only produce devastating results, affecting not only him but also other people.

This dark comedy-drama project tackles the story of one of the most neglected sectors in the Philippine workforce and society – the fish pen boys. They provide fish to the Filipino people everyday oblivious to the kind of lives they subject themselves to. They are drowning in sorrow as they seek to break free from the nets of poverty and swim towards real freedom.

The cast includes Rafa Siguion-ReynaHector Macaso, Jesus Allan Forte, John Vincent Sevilla, Rowena Concepcion, Vincent Magbanua, Royce Cabrera, Raul Morit and Dess Versosa.
