The Kite Synopsis

Though widowed ex-cop Homer is a kindly father to his ten-year old son Rex, he is considered to be something of a bully in the poor Manila neighborhood that he lives. After mistaking a child retrieving a snarled kite for a burglar, Homer kills the boy and then hurriedly tries to cover up his error. Unbeknownst to his dad, Rex witnessed the event, too. As the two separately wrestle with their consciences, the neighbors find out and chaos soon ensues.

Intense performances from some of the best local talents! Ricky Davao as the suspected child-killer and adoptive father of Rex is intense and in control while Lester Llansang as Rex delivers a realistic portrayal of a child yearning for a father's love and attention.  Other notable cast include Roy Alvarez and Mark Gil,  veteran performers of action and drama genres who are popular supporting actors.
