Are you willing to bet everything for money and power? VIVA Films and award-winning Director/Producer Brillante Mendoza bring you “Pusoy,” the story of a young man who’s good at hustling, better in gambling, and the best in women. Coming this May 27 on VIVAMAX.

“Pusoy” is the story of Popoy (Vince Rillon), an ambitious young bodyguard who works at one of the most notorious gambling dens owned by Rodolfo (Baron Geisler), a combative and disagreeable man and managed by Xandra (Janelle Tee), Rodolfo’s mistress. Popoy works hard for Rodolfo, but he also dreams of taking over the gambling den one day. He finally gets the push he needs when he falls in love with Mika (Angeli Khang), Rodolfo’s new mistress.

When Rodolfo kills a powerful politician’s son, the gang needs to raise a huge amount of money to be given to a General for their protection. When their lives are put in grave danger, they begin questioning their loyalty to the gang.
