It wasn’t going to be easy.

These thieves were hired to steal the most celebrated, worshiped and “guarded”, historical statue, the Santo Nino (Baby Jesus) from a popular Catholic Church. It’s rumoured to be the original one given by the Spanish to the Filipinos. It’s a high-risk, high-stakes job, but they’re committed to it.

With some ingenuity and some bad-ass parkour stunts, the two thieves move in swiftly and get their hands on the statue.
