Plot Description: A couple, martial arts professional (Tony Ferrer) and social worker (Boots Anson Roa) cared for seven street beggars.

Film Achievement: Entry to the 1st QC Film Festival. One of three films Vilma Santos and Tony Ferrer did together, one was Wonderful World of Music and the other one was Darna and The Giants where Vilma played Darna and Tony as Tony Falcon, Agent X-44 (ala-James Bond). Sapagka't is also one of Vilma films with Boots Anson Roa, the others, "The Wonderful World of Music" and "Mano Po III: My Love."

Film Reviews: "...She continued her singing stints with an album most Vilmanians seems to forget, All I See Is You carried the folk song, Ati Cu Pung Sing-sing and Wonderful world of Music. The later song became a title of a musical film that paired Vilma with Edgar and co-starred with Snooky, Tony Ferrer, and Boots Anson Roa. The demand for Vi & Bot's recordings increased and Willears produced Sweetheart, perhaps a confirmation album of the real score between the two young teen stars. Out of 25 films Vilma and Edgar made in 1970, both Sweethearts and Sixteen stands out as two of their certified hits both as films and recorded albums..." - RV (READ MORE)

"...It's not all Agent X-44 roles for Tony Ferrer. The popular action star of the 60s appeared in other countless varied roles, notably as a 'karatista' or 'karateka' (karate fighter). Karate, a popular martial arts that time was popularized in movies by another action star Roberto Gonzalez. Growing up in this period, viewers were saturated with this kind of movie stuffs...He also did two drama movies in 1970, a complete turn-around on his usual action roles, Sapagka't sila'y aming mga Anak and Living Doll, both with Boots Anson-Roa and child star Snooky..." - Simon Santos (READ MORE)
