Cast & Credits
Its a glimpse of two people meeting together after a long time, and obviously used to be in a relationship. I must warn you though, that watching this mini movie will hurt, a lot, sepecially if you are a gay guy who has experienced loving the same sex and has been forced by society to stop.
Good cinematography, good script. The sound is a little too tiny i have to read the subtitles just too understand the conversation. This is how Pinoy BL dramas should be judged, not the titiliating indie movies a few years back. I would have given the story a 10 if they didnt make the fiance a girl.
