Ang Padrino Movie Plot Summary
At the start of the movie, an unnamed hired killer (Rey Langit) went to Emong’s neighborhood and pretended to be an electrician. He killed an entire family so he can use their place as nice spot to kill Emong. When he had a chance, he shot Emong in the face. Later, people attended the wake of Emong in their home. This was when a flashback of his life was shown.
Emong has wife Chayong (Connie Reyes) and a younger brother Tony (Zandro Zamora). Known for wearing an all-white attire, Emong helps other people, while Chayong manages their passenger jeep business. Aside from his kindness, Emong is also a tough when it comes to fighting and guns. It was later revealed that the Emong is still alive and only lost his right eye. He now finds his supposed killer, who was hired to assassinate him because he already wants to leave the syndicate.
