“Nuwebe” is written and directed by Joseph Israel Laban. The film is topbilled by Nadine Samonte and Jake Cuenca. Also in the movie are Anita Linda, Manny Castañeda, Mikael Liwag, and Barbara Miguel.
Inspired by the actual story of one of the youngest mothers in Philippine history, “Nuwebe” follows the story of Krista who at the tender age of 9 got pregnant from the sexual abuse perpetrated by her own father… Her story is complex. Krista refuses to see herself as a victim. With an almost documentary style, “Siyam” follows Krista’s story as she demonstrates a level of resilience uncommon to her age. Her mother on the other hand is torn between her love for her child and her love for her husband.
