"Babae sa Breakwater" or Women of Breakwater is a 2004 Filipino drama film directed by Mario O'Hara starring Katherine Luna. The film is a moving insight into the squalor and poverty of inner city life in the Philippines.


Babae sa Breakwater is a film about a man Basilio (Kristoffer King), who escapes from provincial Leyte to the slums of Manila with his younger brother Buboy (Alcris Galura). Residing in the shanty town tenements beneath the tourist-infested breakwater of Manila, Basilio falls in love with a prostitute Paquita (Katherine Luna) a girl who started whoring so early in her life that at her relatively young age she's already played out, her body full of sexual diseases and open sores. Their relationship is troubled by the apparent poverty and the more impending threat of the slums' jealous protector, ex-cop Dave (Gardo Versoza). This tragic tale covers a whole plethora of emotions that surround Manila life.Erotic is one word to describle it.
