The Political Thriller “BENTE” features three parallel stories of three main characters – a hard hitting commentator Arnie Guerrero (Jinggoy Estrada), a body guard (Richard Gomez) of a corrupt mayor, who is frequently criticized in radio programs, and the student activist (Gatchalian).
The mayor instructed his bodyguard to murder Arnie after he has revealed corrupt practies of the said mayor on his radio show. The bodyguard, on the other hand, has his own personal problems as his wife played by Iza Calzado is commiting adultery.
Mervin has his own fair share of death threats, given by his participation in social movements.
The movie will feature a climactic ending, which will surely change forever the lives of the three main characters.
