"Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story" promises an action-packed thriller reminiscent of well-beloved Filipino action classics.
Synopsis: From the shadows of gangland Manila rises a familiar gangster; thought as dead by many but now back and thirsty for revenge. Arturo Porcuna, now known as “Boy Golden”, treads back to the streets of gangsters to seek revenge against an old adversary. Along the way he meets Marla Dee, a sexy, stunning woman filled with vendetta against the same gang leader Boy Golden is after. Together, they join forces, along with a handful of friends, to satisfy their own thirsts of revenge.
Inspired by the story of a real life gangster Arturo “Boy Golden” Porcuna during the 60’s, the movie takes the story of the “unkillable” gangster back to its realm of gun fights, bloodshed, reputation and revenge; packed with another chapter of finding out where the heart lies amidst the bullet filled world of Gang-land Manila.
