Hendrix dreams of hip-hop greatness, but he's spiraling down a rabbit-hole of crime and poverty until he meets Doc, an old poet still haunted by his martial law past. Can they turn each other's lives around before they're swallowed by their circumstance?
RESPETO is a celebration of the underground Pinoy hip-hop world and how we find the words to find ourselves.
