Fans of Rhen Escaño, who first saw her as a sexy star, are in for a treat as they will now see her growth as an actress, taking on a very challenging role in the action genre.

Rhen Escaño is all about seeking vengeance in the action film Karma, where she plays Angel, an ace assassin who is forever scarred by her father’s murder.

Angel was eight years old when her father was brutally killed right in front of her, and she grew up trying to protect those who are being oppressed. It came to a point where she accidentally killed a man who was attempting to rob a father and his child.

With the help of her godfather, the provincial kingpin called “Chief” (played by Roi Vinzon), Angel was not sent to prison, but instead became part of his covert assassin organization which only
targets the society’s dregs.

However, in her latest mission, the young daughter of her target witnessed her crime. Angel cannot erase from her mind the image of the girl holding her father’s lifeless body in her arms. Her remorse gets even stronger when she learns that the man she killed was not a drug pusher, but an undercover police officer.

This discovery leads to more disturbing revelations about her godfather, the true nature of their organization, and the truth behind her father’s death. And now, there’s no stopping her from taking down the real culprit.

Karma pairs Escaño with Sid Lucero, who plays the role of Rommel, an ex-academician-turned-assassin. Rommel has had quite a temper since he was young. After a deadly encounter with a
gang, Chief recruited him into his organization. Rommel and Angel became partners, treating each other like siblings.

Though an efficient hitman, Rommel has never really liked this job and hopes to retire soon. Chief agrees to his plan on one condition: that he will get rid of Angel whom Chief now sees as a liability to their organization because of all the things she’s found out.

Aside from this movie, Escaño and Lucero are also seen together in the TV series Carlo J. Caparas’ Lumuhod Ka sa Lupa, which is currently airing on TV5.

To prepare for her role, Escaño took fight and gun trainings and clips of which she shared on her official social media accounts. One of her captions read, “Will never forget ilang beses akong umiyak kase akala ko ’di ko kaya.”

Fans of Rhen Escaño, who first saw her as a sexy star, are in for a treat as they will now see her growth as an actress, taking on a very challenging role in the action genre.

Karma also stars Krista Miller, Paolo Paraiso, Leandro Baldemor, and Mon Confiado.

Produced by Viva Films and Happy Infinite, Karma opens in cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, June 19.
