MANILA — Thanks to Star Cinema, the Manny Pacquiao biopic ‘Kid Kulafu’ is coming to the United States and Canada on April 24.

‘Kid Kulafu’ tells the story of Manny’s humble beginnings from Bukidnon up until his first winning match as a pro boxer. The title of the movie came from a famous alcoholic drink in the 80’s called Vino Kulafu, whose bottles Manny used to collect and sell for extra income.
