Junior lives with his wife Inday together with two of their children, a daughter-in-law and their grandson. One day, their daughter Amor returns home, after spending time in the city, with a sickness. She has been infected with venom, a Yanggaw [Yanggaw in the Ilonggo dialect is translated as 'infection'], that goes through her ears. In a few days, Amor evolves into a monster commonly called 'aswang'. She goes out at night and attacks animals first and her hunger grows for human blood. The story is about one father's attempt to keep his family together no matter how dire the situation has become. He has been trying to make ends meet but he has no money and an infected and vampire-like daughter only complicates things further for him. Junior has to decide who and what he is willing to sacrifice to keep his family together.

Yanggaw is a depiction of rural Philippine life; it is simple yet not without its hardships. Junior wants to take care of his family but does not have the money to do so; he borrows from friends even though these friendships seem under strain and weighed down by a difficult past. His daughter's illness and transformation only compounds this hardship as none of the local hospitals and clinics have the means to attend to his daughter and going to the city costs money that he does not have. Under the guidance of a local shaman Junior and his wife are told to wait three days to see what becomes of this infection but as her condition worsens and she starts to disappear into the night the situation turns for the worse.

Stars: Ronnie Lazaro, Tetchie Agbayani and Joel Torre
