This controversial film was the first Filipino film invited to Cannes. Insiang endures abuse from her mother and betrayal from her lover. The town scamp Dado moves in with her mother to get to Insiang and eventually ra...展开pes her. But her mother blames her instead. Her innocence scattered, Insiang plans some unpredictable vengeance. With a realistic view on the lower depths of the Philippines, pioneer director Lino Brocka presents an astonishing cinematic experience in which a simple story flows richly to a dramatic twist.
