“OTJ: The Series” Season 1 follows the story of four people – Sisoy, a corrupt local media man under the payroll of Pedring, the treacherous father of the town’s ruling political clan; Pam, a passionate and honest big network investigative journalist from Manila and Roman, a principled hired gun regularly brought out of prison to kill. Their paths cross when eight journalists from Sisoy’s town are massacred by Roman’s group and buried without a trace a day before Christmas Eve.
Pam jumps on the case just as Sisoy discovers his connection to Pedring won’t help him find out what happened to his friends.
