Viva Entertainment''s New Sex Goddess Yam Concepcion will sizzle and titillate your senses as she brings hot and sexy movies back on the big screen. Rigodon tackles about secret lives, hidden passions, deceit, betrayal, vengeance, and peeping eyes. It is directed by Erik Matti, the genius behind the movies Scorpio Nights 2 (the movie that launches the career of Joyce Jimenez), Balahibong Pusa (re-launches Rica Peralejo as a sexy actress), and Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles, and also stars another FHM cover girl Maxene Eigenmann.

Can we truly know another person, close as we might become? Secret lives, hidden passions, deceit, betrayal and vengeance are revealed in a dizzying dance of a peeping eye.

We follow the life of Sarah, who has been left by her boyfriend after he was threatened by her domineering father. Drifting, in despair, she meets Riki, a former teen star now hosting a home tv shopping show. Casual friendship turns deeper as Sarah feels herself being drawn closer to Riki, who actively pursues her. Until she gives herself one passionate night.

The next morning, we shift our voyeurs view and follow Riki as he makes his way to his houseand his wife, Regine. Here we get to know the real Riki as he tries to juggle his incredibly complicated life, dealing with loan sharks, his boss, his still-smoldering ambition to regain his stardom, his girl Sarah, his wife Regine, and still another ex-wife, Pearl. Secrets he tries to keep, specially from Regine.

So then we follow Regine, as she struggles with raising their two children while managing her bipolar disorder and growing suspicion, frustration, and rage at her shadowy husband.

Then Regine discovers Pearl and the sick son that is the counterpart to their own girl and finds that her paranoia has become a bitter reality. She confronts Riki. Riki realizes that of all of them, Regine is the one he is terrified of losing, for Regine is the only one he truly loves. He resolves to do better by her, but being the duplicitous person that he is, cannot bring himself to cut clean and instead starts avoiding Sarah.

And when Sarah, puzzled and hurt by Rikis evasiveness, discovers the truth, this leads to Regine discovering more devastating, soul-crushing truths about her husband. As Rikis convoluted world unravels around him, these two troubled womens murderous rage leads to a shattering finale.
