Johnny loved Gloria’s child just like his own and they lived a peaceful life together. However, months passed when strange things happened in their town.
Villagers keep on seeing dead animals as if killed by someone that sucked their blood. This started the belief that an “aswang” is staying in their place.

Upon learning this, will Johnny stand up for his love for Gloria or choose to walk away? What will he do to bring back his wife to her old ways?
