Kin-kin inhales a bag full of Rugby, an industrial solvent commonly abused by street kids in the Philippines. Kin-kin left her home in Compostela Valley province at the age of eight and headed toward Davao to look for work. She frequently uses soft drugs like Rugby to numb her hunger and cope with harassment from gang members who once shaved her head while she slept. Shoe cobblers and carpenters continue to sell Rugby to children like Kin-kin despite the existence of a city ordinance that prohibits its sale to minors.
