[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

Is that so wrong?

I'm trying to find
a solution here,

and they think
I'm the bad guy?

Love, your brothers
were just taken aback.

Even I was surprised.

You made a decision
without telling me.

But I understand
why you did that, love.

We're just worried because
politics is a dirty game.

But we have to do this.

Love, it's too risky.



We don't even know
if you'll win.

That's why I need you.

I need you with me on this.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Have you really
made up your mind?

Love…

Papa gave me this.

This watch was
really important to him.

But he gave it to me.

I know this is also
what he would have wanted.

I know because I can feel it.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[PACO] Let's have your father's
case reinvestigated, okay?



You'll have
Mister Panyong's

case reinvestigated?

There's no development
in Mister Panyong's case.

I'm sorry,
we forgot to tell you.

We're helping Mister Lando.

Drew, he knows something
about Papa's death.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CHERRY] He knows something
about Papa's death.

Listen, guys.

I'll wager
a sack of rice

that Sir Paco
will win.

- Alright!
- One sack of rice!

I want Sir Paco to win,
but let's face it.

The Villanuevas
are powerful people.

You know, Sir Paco
can beat them.

The Villanuevas
have been in power for years

but General Luna
still hasn't prospered!

Right?

- Sir Drew.
- I guess.

- Sir!
- Sir, good afternoon!

What brings you here?

So, shall we get started
with the campaign?

We'll have to court you, then.

[LAUGHTER]

Oh, there's no need
for that, sir.

- Yeah.
- Listen, sir.

- We will all vote for Sir Paco.
- Yes, sir!

- [LAUGHTER]
- Thank you. [CHUCKLES]

[INHALES DEEPLY]

- Sir Paco will win, right?
- Of course!

I'm sure everyone here
will vote for him.

That's for sure.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco made a wise decision,
don't you think?

If competitors are trying
to bring your business down,

think of ways to be in
a position of authority,

so you'll have power
over them.

[SIGHS] Auntie,
I'm still not convinced.

I really don't want Paco
to run for mayor.

Well, I can't blame you.

He'll be up against a very
dangerous family after all.

Besides, the family
of our current mayor

has been ruling our entire
province for decades.

- Exactly, Auntie.
- Mm-hmm.

That's why
I'm worried about him.

But I told him I'd support
his decision.

Well, that's a given.

He's your husband,
so you should support him.

Besides, you'll be the
First Lady if he wins.

[CHUCKLES]

Hey, you better
get yourself ready.

- As for me,
- [SIGHS]

I'll also prepare myself
to be the mother

- of the First Lady.
- [CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

It suits me, right?

[LAUGHS] Hey!

[BOTH LAUGHING]

Eat up. You're all
skin and bones.

Don't they feed you
at the mansion?

[LAUGHS]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Thanks.

Hi! Paco Estrella.

Do you remember me?
We met at the resort's opening.

Uh, yes. I remember you.

Where's the governor?

Probably on his way here
to eat breakfast.

Okay.

[LANDO GRUNTS]

- [GROANS]
- Mister Lando?

Is it true that
you know something

about the corpse that
was thrown into the sea?

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

Yes.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You know what? Come with me.

[INHALES DEEPLY,
EXHALES SHARPLY]

Where are we going?

You'll see.

Come on. There's lots
of food there.

Lots and lots.

- [DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [SIGHS DEEPLY]

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

Food?

[CHUCKLES]

Okay.

- Okay.
- [CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

Let's go.

Shall we?

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

[LANDO] This way.

Over here. See that?

It was here.

T-This is where
they threw the body.

Like this.

They threw it like that.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[PANTING]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Do you know what the body
looked like?

A car.

There.

They took the body
from the car,

then they dumped it.

What car?

Big.

And long.

The back was open,

then they took the body.

There. I ran over there
while they were coming.

I hid. Then they dumped it.

There.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

What else do you know?

There was paper.

The paper fell down.

I picked it up.

Where's the paper?

I can't read it. It was stolen.

[HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]

Who took it?

That bad man stole it.

He's a thief.

[BREATHING SHAKILY]

I just want to learn
how to read.

He stole it.

There's a letter that's for me.

I just want to learn to read.

There's a letter for me.

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

For you?

Yes!

It's from…

…my girlfriend, Sheryll.

But she's dead, too.

I loved her so much,

but she was killed, too.

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

I loved Sheryll.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLES] My love is gone.

She's gone.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

My love is dead.

Gone.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

- [LANDO] Teach me to read.
- [GASPS]

Teach me to read.

[BREATHING SHAKILY]

Can you?

You look like a good man.

Here.

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

What… What is this?

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Where's Seb?

You two know each other?

Of course!

No, I mean, even before
the resort's opening?

Seb is friends with all of
the women here in General Luna.

He's a charmer.

He gets along well
with other people,

and he's friendly to everyone.

Why don't you use him?

Excuse me?

Include him in your campaign.

I heard you're running
for mayor.

Where did you hear that?

Paco!

Governor.

How is the future mayor
of General Luna?

So, have you decided?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[COWS MOOING]

Come in, Mayor.

Paco's on his way downstairs.

Thank you.

Love.

Mayor.

What brings you here?

I'm here to talk to you, Paco.

Um, I'll just get you
something to drink.

Word has it that you'll be
running against me.

Yes. It's true.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

This is her picture.

She's pretty, right?

- She is.
- [LANDO CHUCKLES]

What does it say?

"I love you so much, Lando.

Forever, Sheryll."

[LANDO CHUCKLING SOFTLY]

You're so kind.

So kind.

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

Do you want to come with me?

Let's have
Sheryll's picture framed.

Okay.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

I just thought that maybe
it's time for me

to fulfill Papa's dreams
for General Luna.

You know what?

Freddie told me that, too.

Among his four sons,

he believed you'd be the one
to enter politics.

It's a shame he won't be able
to see it for himself.

The truth is,

Freddie had always wanted
to run for office,

but he never did.

We were friends.

And we didn't want to ruin
our friendship over politics.

In return,

I helped his business.

This business.

Your ranch.

I was his supporter,
and he was mine.

But now,

we're running against
each other.

[MAYOR SIGHS]

Well, Mayor…

We need changes around here.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHUCKLES DRYLY]

I guess…

…I can no longer
change your mind.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Once this election is over,

I hope we can still be
on good terms.

[CHUCKLES]

We're like family, Paco.

In fact, Drew's my godson.

But, politics is an entirely
different world.

It's dirty.

Very dirty.

It will change you,
for the worst.

And everyone in your life
will be affected,

including your family.

So, if you're not
hiding anything,

then you have nothing to fear.

But if you are,

it will come back to bite you.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[INHALES DEEPLY]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[KEYS JINGLING]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[MAYOR] Politics is an
entirely different world.

If you're not hiding anything,

then you have nothing to fear.

But if you are,

it will come back to bite you.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY] Love?

Love. [EXHALES SHARPLY]

Hey.

You look like
you've seen a ghost.

No, I was just surprised, love.

You surprised me.

[CHUCKLES]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Come on, love. Let's eat.

Okay, love. I'll be right there.

Okay.

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

Are we there yet?

Where are we?

Here?

Um, I think a rear tire
has gone flat.

Can you check?

Tire?

Okay. Okay.

Are we here?

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

Oh, the back.

- [ENGINE REVVING]
- Hey!

Hey! Don't leave me!

Where are you going?! Hey!

Hey!

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING]

Don't… Don't leave me!

Don't leave!

[SOBBING]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

How do I get home?

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[PACO] Love, I hope
you can forgive me.

But you mustn't know the truth

about your parents' deaths.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Especially now.

My family depends on me.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Millennium Food warned me
about calling the deal off

if we don't settle
our beef deliveries.

[DAVE] If we lose
Millennium Food too,

then it'll be hard for us
to recover.

How about export?

Let's penetrate
the Southeast Asia market.

We're already having trouble
managing local deliveries.

Now, you're suggesting we enter
the international market?

[DREW] It can be done.

Is Paco's candidacy
really the only solution?

[PACO] That's why
we need to work together

to secure my victory.

Our victory.

The first thing
you need to do

is make sure that
you won't do anything

that will ruin
our family's reputation.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Well, as for me…

I agree with this plan.

[PACO] Seb, you're joining
my campaign.

Help me out on this one.

Sure, Paco. Count me in.

Drew, Cherry and I will be busy
with the campaign,

so I'll leave you in charge
of the ranch.

I'll do my best, Paco.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You heard your brother.

- Stay out of trouble--
- Geez! I get it!

Give me a break.

Why?

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS DEEPLY]

I saw Papa in my dreams
last night.

He told me that
I can lose everything else,

but not my family.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

See?

Even your Papa's telling you
to get a grip.

That's what you get
for fooling around.

You know what to do, right?

Hi!

[GRUNTS]

What?

I'm done.

We need to stop this.

[SCOFFS]

Really? Now?

[FLORABELLE SIGHS]

I don't want to cheat
on my wife anymore.

Isn't your conscience
killing you?

We're fooling our partners.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Okay.

If that's what you want.

[SNIFFLES]

What if I jump off
this building?

Florabelle.

What if I slit my wrist?

I don't want this.

Don't hold me hostage, please.

That's not what I'm doing.
I'm just asking you.

What if?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CHUCKLES]

But it doesn't seem
like you care.

Of course I care for you.

But what we're doing
is wrong, Florabelle.

It's all the more wrong
for me because I'm married.

I know.

That's why I'm preparing
for when you decide to leave.

In the short time
I've known you,

I already know
that I can't change your mind.

So be it.

I'm letting you go.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm sorry.

But, before you go, can you just
give me one last look?

[SEB INHALES DEEPLY]

[FLORABELLE SOBS]

[SEXY MUSIC PLAYING]

[FLORABELLE GASPS]

[SEXY MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

[COWS MOOING]

[WOMAN] Sir, here is
our schedule of activities

- for the entire week.
- [SEB] Mm-hmm.

We also have a list
of volunteers who'll take part

in those activities,
including your family.

- Has this list been approved?
- Yes, sir.

Are you sure?

- Let me double-check.
- Okay, sir.

[BRIGHT MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DREW] Tsk!

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

What the hell?

Why? What's wrong?

My shirt has a stain.

Why does Paco's campaign color
have to be white?

[SEB] What about it?

It's nice.

White.

It looks clean.

It represents
a clean slate. Right?

It was actually my idea.

[SCOFFS]

[PHONE BEEPS]

"Let's meet later."

I actually like it.

It has a nice meaning to it.

Right?

[BECCA] Mm-hmm.

[BRIGHT MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS] You should've
considered some other color.

Our clothes
will just get dirty.

There's nothing we can do.
It's final.

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS]

Cherry Red!

Look at this.
You should wear this instead.

It's nice and simple,

but you'll still
look respectable.

- Right?
- Okay, Auntie. I'll wear it.

[CHUCKLING]

You know what?

Being called the First Lady
of General Luna suits you.

[GIGGLES]

Mrs. Luna.

Auntie…

Why?

It's Mrs. Estrella.

Oh, right.

- [BOTH LAUGHING]
- [BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

Seriously, Auntie?

[EBS LAUGHING]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Auntie?

Hmm?

I don't know if this
is the right thing to do.

[EBS INHALES DEEPLY]

My dear, Paco needs you,
so you're doing what's right.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[INHALES DEEPLY,
EXHALES SHARPLY]

Where's Cherry?

We need to go
to the town hall now.

Uh… She'll probably be here
any minute now.

[DAVE] There she is.

[SENSUAL MUSIC PLAYING]

You'll make a great
First Lady, Cherry.

Why, of course.

There can only be
one First Lady.

[SENSUAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SEB CLEARS THROAT]

Shall we?

Let's go.

Paco hit the jackpot
with Cherry.

Paco Estrella!

[CHEERING, CLAPPING]

[CHANTING] Paco! Paco! Paco!

[PACO] Uh, good day, everyone.

Thank you very much
for coming here today.

My name is Paco Estrella.

And just like you,

I am a true son
of General Luna.

I was born and raised here.

My parents are Freddie
and Carol Estrella.

You all know my father.

He has helped plenty of people
in this town

because he had a dream
for all of us,

for the people of General Luna.

And that is for everyone
to have a bright future.

[WOMAN 1] Whoo!

[CHEERING, CLAPPING]

[MAN 1] Way to go, Sir Paco!

But, unfortunately,

my father left us early.

That's why he couldn't
fulfill his own dreams.

But, before we lost him,
he entrusted you all to me.

He asked me to fulfill
his dreams,

to continue what he
has started in this town,

and to help the people
of General Luna.

[CROWD CHEERING, CLAPPING]

[CHANTING] Paco! Paco! Paco!

That's why we're standing here
before you.

I am here,
together with my brothers.

Dave,

Seb, and Drew.

[CROWD CLAPPING]

Of course, I'm also joined by
my kind and lovely wife.

[HOST] Whoo!

[CROWD CHEERING, CLAPPING]

[PACO] She's also a daughter
of General Luna.

Cherry Red.

[CROWD CHEERING, CLAPPING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[PACO] We're humbly asking
for your support.

This coming election,

don't forget to vote
for Paco Estrella.

[CROWD CHEERING, CLAPPING]

[PACO] Here's to
a new General Luna.

A clean government
with no taint of corruption.

[CHEERING, CLAPPING]

[CHANTING] Paco! Paco! Paco!

Love?

[CHANTING CONTINUES]
Paco! Paco! Paco!

[MAN 2] Cherry!

- Thank you, ma'am.
- [WOMAN 2] Thank you.

[WOMAN 3] Sir Paco.

- Thank you so much, ma'am.
- Thank you.

Thank you.

Bro, thank you for coming.

- [PACO] Thank you.
- [MAN 3] It's our pleasure.

[WOMAN 3] We're happy
that you're running for mayor.

[PACO] Thank you.

[WOMAN 3] We know
you're the hope of our town,

so we're very happy--

Love?

- Yeah?
- I'll be back, okay?

- Where are you going?
- I'll be quick.

Love?

Excuse me, Mayor.
Someone wants to talk to you.

Alright.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[AMANDA]
Why don't you get pregnant?

What?!

Are you serious, Ma?

Why not?

That way, you'll no longer
have a hard time with Dave.

Men only want one thing,

and that is to have a child.

So, give it to him.

Dave won't let you go
after that.

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY SOBBING]

[WOMAN 1] What happened?

[CHERRY PANTING]

Stand back.

- [PANTING]
- [WOMAN 2] Is he dead?

- [MAN 1] What happened?
- Pa!

- [TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [CHERRY PANTING]

Mister Lando!

Mister Lando!

[WAILS] Aah!

Papa!

Pa!

Mister Lando!

[PANICKED BREATHS]

Mister Lando!

Help! Help!

Help!

Mister Lando!

Help!

Mister Lando!

[PANICKED BREATHING CONTINUES]

Help!

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

- [EXHALES DEEPLY]
- Relax, okay?

There won't be
any investigation.

You need to hire
security personnel.

It's added protection
for you and ma'am.

You hired a lot
of security personnel.

The more the better.

This is all my fault.

This is not your fault.

Whatever Mister Lando told you
probably wasn't true.

Mister Lando knows
about Mister Panyong's death.

He's crazy.
No one will believe him.

Cherry does.

She thinks he's key to the truth
behind her father's death.

Paco, this letter has to go.

I found this. I get to decide
what to do with it.

Why can't you dispose that?!

This has something to do
with my wife!

Once that letter gets out,

it's going to be the end
for our family.
