The Sto. Niño de Cebu sits encased at the Basilica Menor del Santo Niño where a pair of thieves execute a plan to steal the 600 year-old religious idol.
A gift from Spanish Catholic Missionaries, the Sto. Niño to date costs millions.
But in the duo’s pursuit of the idol, they encounter a mysterious man in a hood and eventually discover the true value of the artifact they are stealing.
The two, ultimately, fall to the Sto. Niño’s mischief.
