“Alpha Kappa Omega, Ang Simula at Wakas ay Kapatiran…” Thus goes the credo that initiates us into the subculture of BATCH ’81 – a probing look inside the secret society of fraternities and the rites of passage one must undergo to gain entry within. The film is an acute portrayal of a fractured culture and the cyclical nature of violence and the politics of fear.
