Insiang (1976)

Trapped in the slums, Insiang finds living with her disapproving, sharp-tongued mother, Tonya, trying. Tonya, having long ago been abandoned by her husband, takes her bitterness out on those around her. In a fit of anger, she finally throws out her husband’s relatives who have been living with her, but it’s not for the sake of their not bringing in money anymore, which it seems on the surface.

Forced to return home, Insiang turns this inescapable situation upon itself to exact revenge.
