Juan Dela Cruz is the story of an unlikely hero. He is an orphan boy brought up in the church by a righteous parish priest, Father Cito, who guided him towards goodness. But because he had an innate temper, the pruddish townspeople disliked him except the priest whom he regarded as his father… Read more on next page.
One day the priest was killed by a thief. Juan ended up in the streets of Quiapo, as a simple, kind and yet tough young man. Unknown to him, he is half aswang, the son of Samuel Alejandro, the Haring Aswang and also the prophesied Anak ng Dilim.
He is fated to rule over his kind and take over the human race. But his mother, Amelia, is a Tagabantay, coming from an ancient lineage of defenders using the Bakal na Krus to destroy the Aswangs.
How can Juan fulfill his destiny as the next Tagabantay while struggling against his nature as an Aswang – a creature he is also destined to destroy?
This is the story of the fight between good and evil that also happens inside all of us.
OFFICIAL HD DVD RELEASE
NOTE: This is an official DVD release of the special edition movie in HD (720p AC3). I’m sure the movie is an outake of the TV series, however I’m not sure if all the scenes in the DVD are from the TV series since I don’t really have the time to watch them on TV. However, there is an ending to this DVD (which I’m sure is not the ending we expect from the series) and the credits roll after it. Thank you very much.
