It’s 1995 and Manila silently rots to the core. Thanks to a well-structured syndicate, criminals are free to roam the streets a day or two after being caught. Such would have been the fate of four “repeat offenders” until unseen hands throw in blows to blur the equation. If the gods play dice with the universe, you wouldn’t want to be caught on the gambling table. Join Corporal, Skychurch, Meleubren, and Wereballs as the Bamboo Dogs take one helluva ride along the streets of Mondomanila where invisible forces create, protect and alas, destroy.
On what should have been just another night on the job, Police Officers Esquivel & Corazon receive a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will soon grab headlines as the biggest police conspiracy in all of Philippine history. The order seems simple enough at first: fix an arrest mix-up by taking the Kuratong Baleleng, a notorious group of robbers, to Camp Crame where they will be let go. But mid-transport, the orders change and Esquivel and his co-policemen find themselves having to choose between carrying out orders or doing what’s right.
