Congratulations to “Graceland” director Ron Morales. Their project received the most votes to win January’s Project of the Month. As a prize, they will receive a consultation from the Sundance Institute.

If you’re a filmmaker (or know one) and you want us to consider an in-production film for our Project of the Day column, fill out the form here.

Here’s the synopsis on the winning narrative:

Marlon Villar, a family man, is the long-time personal driver of Manuel Changho, a corrupt politician in Metro Manila, Philippines. While driving Mr. Changho’s preteen daughter Sophia, together with his own daughter Elvie, the three become the target of a kidnapping attempt. When the wrong girl is taken, Marlon’s life takes a sudden and violent turn which propels him into a downward spiral of deception. As events unravel, Marlon, Mr. Changho, and their families become entangled in a web of lies and corruption that will leave no one innocent.
