The teachers' simple get-rich-quick plan to kidnap the child of a corrupt politician begins to unravel.
Daniel Ryan and Jade Matthew (who won the 2015 BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Debut Performance for her role in A KIDNAPPING), play two British teachers at an international school in Manila who have kidnapped a 10-year-old child.
With local taxi driver Rami (Art Acuna) they attempt to extract a ransom from the boy's father, a prominent, corrupt and vengeful politician. But when the boy discovers the identity of one of his captors, their simple get-rich-quick plan begins to unravel.
A fast-paced thriller and a grand, comic morality tale set and recorded in the Philippines.
