The film tells the story of Angela (Aunor), a pregnant victim of a miscarriage of justice, her incarceration in a Manila jail, her escape, the delivery of her illegitimate child in a city zoo, he subsequent recapture, and her triumph in securing legal custody of her child.


This film was regarded as one of the best films of 1984. It was the first project of Cherubim Films and signalled the comeback of Nora Aunor after a bad spell in her professional and personal life. It also signalled the emergence of O'Hara as a major director in the Philippine movie industry.
