Alagwa's lead star Jericho Rosales sat down for a press conference held at Luk Foo Hot Pot in Quezon City last Thursday, October 3.
Joining him were Director Ian Loreños and the other cast members: Bugoy Cariño, Smokey Manaloto and Leo Martinez.
Alagwa tells the story of a nine-year-old boy who becomes a victim of human trafficking and the desperate attempt of his father to save him.
Initially launched as an indie film, Alagwa (Breakaway) held its world premiere at the 17th Busan International Film Festival last September 2012.
The film got rave reviews, one of which was from the Hollywood Reporter, which called it a "low-budget standout."
Alagwa was also invited for a special Manila screening for Cinema One Originals Film Festival last December 2012.
This acclaimed Filipino film will have its first commercial release in SM Cinemas, beginning October 9.
