Kapitan Tumba Movie Plot
This action-packed movie revolves around the protagonist, Roi Vinzon, as he plays the role of Captain Jose Huevos of Bulacan. This true-to-life story narrates the story of a Narco Police Officer who was transferred to a province in Bulacan and his mission to track down notorious drug lords. Seeing a culture of drug abuse in the province, he started a Rehabilitation Center to help drug-dependents live a better lifestyle.
In the movie, Captain Huevos does more than just hunting down drug lords. He captures a man who was using a wang-wang to get ahead in traffic, pretending he was a police officer. He also hunts down a group of men who were starting to rape a woman in the woods.
When his brother got involved with illegal drugs, the captain started a crusade against the daunting drug lord Norberto (Ronaldo Valdez). He finally kills him in the end but a group of military men came to check the scene and captures Captain Huevos. He was confused because he was supposed to be the good guy but he was jailed as an ex-communicado. It was there that he learned Norberto was but a small pawn in a chess game far bigger than Captain Huevos can ever play. Luckily, the people of Bulacan fought for his innocence and were freed from prison.
Captain Huevos gets his nickname Kapitan Tumba because of his fearless nature, running after drug lords to help keep the province safe.
