NENE is a story about the resentment of a seven-year old boy on the crimes of his elder brother. JIE-JIE’s (nene’s brother) misdemeanour, which eventually resulted to a heinous crime, is apparently a struggle of the afflictions of poverty but more as an influence of living in a slam community where poverty and crime unfortunately become a prevailing yet an ignored concern.

Nene’s innocence is ta
inted with so much guilt of his brother’s crime. One day, his worst nightmare came when a police officer forcibly arrests his brother for snatching a necklace- that is aggravated to an eventual killing of such a defenceless victim. It becomes more difficult for him to discern how could their own father seems impassive of the incident.

To end up in jail is the adverse yet a chance Jie-jie may have fallen into that would make him pay for his crime. But Nene continues to endure that unsolicited guilt. He feels obliged to atone for the sins his brother committed which he thought is the only way to release him from the torment of guilty conscience that keeps bothering him.

All his life, Goyak sees that his family depends survival in the vastness of the sea. But the sea’s cruelty has changed its role - NOT as the source of LIFE anymore BUT as the source of DEATH. The turn of events forces Goyak to propel his waves to take refuge on the dry land, unaware of what the Anti-Mendicancy Law means and unmindful of his exposure to indignities and degradation of the society.
Will the sea waves drift Goyak safety ashore, or will they put an arm on him and push him towards the unfathomable depths of the ocean of perplexities and emptiness?  

Pukot is a short film of faith, hope, persistence and vulnerability of a fisherman whose life intertwines in the uncertainty of the sea.
