Director Statement

This film is inspired by the status of our relationship during the isolation phase of our life. I know there were so many stories to incorporate in this aspect but I highlighted this for it showcase the possibilities of the roller coaster of emotions, the temptation, the betrayal, the anxiety, the depression upto forgiveness, hope, faith, trust and love. With the limited time we had (for this was a one day shoot only, not even a day) I'm glad that we're able to deliver it all in this film. Yet not perfectly done, but I had a powerhouse cast that I'm very thankful and I hope that the viewers can see how this film is so worth watching.
