Bell Films to release political action-thriller 'KontrAdiksyon' starring Jake Cuenca and Kris Bernal

"Sino nga ba ang tama o may tama sa panahon ng puro patama?"

After over 23 years, film outfit Bell Films is ready to make a comeback with its political action thriller 'KontrAdiksyon,' which stars a multitude of actors led by Jake Cuenca, Kris Bernal, Ritz Azul, Katrina Halili, and many more.

Directed by two-time Palanca award winning writer-director Njel de Mesa (co-writer of the award-winning film 'Respeto'), 'KontrAdiksyon' is set to be an intense, in-depth, critical, and edge-of-your-seat look on the Philippines' current drug war.

The story follows Alexis Borlaza (Jake Cuenca), a human rights activist who gets imprisoned and framed for the murder of his entire family by meth-addicts. As he tries to find justice for his family, he becomes an informant and asset to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency. Unbeknownst to his PDEA directors Yvonne Acosta (Katrina Halili) and Paul Fuentes (Arnold Cruz), he doubles as a vigilante trying to solve the murders and eradicate the drug problem on his own. While on the run, he encounters Jessica Puyat (Kris Bernal) a call-center agent moonlighting as a drug peddler to make ends meet for her family. Together, they ensue in a cat-and-mouse chase across Metro Manila and get entangled in the complications and contradictions of the war on drugs.

Joining them in the cast are Paolo Paraiso, Will Devaughn, Dennis Padilla, Jojo Alejar, Jong Cuenco, Odette Khan, Patty Tiu, Toffee and Kenny Santos, Mimi Juareza, and many more.
