Agent X44 Plot
The plot revolves around a secret agency with Reserve Agent King Aguila (Vhong Navarro) tasked to recover the Philippines’ most important artifact. The artifact is the bolo of Lapu-Lapu which he used to kill Magellan in 1521.
One night, the Philippines’ most important artifact, Lapu-Lapu’s bolo which he used to kill Ferdinand Magellan in 1521, is stolen from the Philippine National Filipino Museum of the Philippines. Minerva Castillo (Cassandra Ponti), the museum’s curator, contacts the agency for help.
King is given three cases to solve, but he fails each and every one of them. The agency has no choice but to demote him to a clerical job. He longs to be given some fieldwork, but the agency will hear none of it until Magellan’s dagger is reported stolen. Being the top agent, Mary Grace expects the high-profile mission to be assigned to her. Thus, she is shocked when Tony Falcon pushes that King is the best agent for the mission.
