Compound is an independently produced film that is written and directed by Will Fredo. It was exhibited during the 2006 Cinemalaya Film Festival at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. It had its world premiere during the Cleveland International Film Festival last March 25, 2006.

This full-length digital film is about Virgilio delos Reyes (John Arcilla) who attempts to shield his family from a looming misfortune by resorting to the use of crystal methamphetamine (more popularly known by its street name "shabu").

Virgilio and his wife, Divina (Janet Russ), receive Jay Juanillo (Jake Macapagal) as their tenant to occupy one of the houses in their compound. Jay, who himself is trying to escape the realities of his existence from his wife and young male lover, settles in and builds relations with the delos Reyes family.
