“Nabubulok (The Decaying)” is a story about searching for Luna, wife of American, Jason Harper. Luna's relative/neighbors suspect Jason of killing her as he intends to leave the country. And everything follows, all-eyes were focused on Jason's activity. Mapapatutok ka talaga sa movie dahil di mo pwede mo ma-miss kahit isang eksena, kahit walang dialogue tutukan mo ang mga mata nila.

According to direk Sonny, Nabubulok” is a story that happened to a relative of his officemate at ABS-CBN. He wrote it after attending a workshop by award-winning writer and filmmaker Armando “Bing” Lao. He was also pleased that award-winning actress-director Gina Alajar, JC Santos and Jameson Blake have agreed to get on board.
