Kubrador (The Bet Collector)

Philippines 2007

Details rottentomatoes

Seen 29 January 2011

Mundane it might be
That work, bringing in small change
Collected from all and sundry
But that effort
Puts food on the table

It might not be within the law
It might not be safe
It might be dangerous and risky
The work continues
Going through the routines

When the body is weak
Tired, frustrated, dejected
Longings for a better day
A loving touch, a soothing hand
Seems so welcomed

Can it be real
Or just a figment of the imagination
Something desirable
But unreachable
