Kapit sa Patalim (Bayan Ko) (1985)
Turing Manalastas, a printing press worker, and his pregnant wife Luz, also a worker, can hardly make both ends meet. When a strike breaks at his work place, he refuses to join to protect his job, thus eliciting the ire of his fellow workers. His wife's pregnancy and eventually the enormous hospital bill he is forced to settle upon the birth of his first child compels him to turn to crime. At the end, having been driven to take matters into his own hands, Turing meets his tragic fate.
