Two young men from the province, Narding (Fernando Poe, Jr.) and Pepe (Joseph Estrada) ventured and tried they luck in the big city. They went to their respective relatives in one of the crowded slums in Manila. Soon, they met and became good friends. As they adapt to the ways of city life, Narding, a mechanic, was able to land a job in a motor shop, while Pepe was hired as a jeepney driver.
Pepe’s life got messed up when he got linked to a gang (Max, Paquito, etal) and led the group in a series of robberies and holdups. He even lured Narding to his side for fast money. Narding, for his part, tried t persuade Pepe to abandon his illegal activities but to no avail. Fate had its way and Pepe met a tragic end.
Here's one of the many hilarious scenes in the movie, where the two try to outwit and outsmart or put one on the other with funny consequences.
