[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

Dave was gone for a long time.

He lived in Manila.

So he must relearn the ways
here in the ranch.

I'll leave it to you, Cherry.

You'll teach him
how we do things here.

Pa.

Why her?

I can do it.

You have a lot on your plate.

Just leave it to Cherry.



[COWS MOOING]

You have to pass through here

so you don't pass on
any diseases to the cows.

We milk them twice a day.

Five in the morning
and five in the afternoon.

Their milk is brought
to the cooling tank

before being taken
to the processing plant.

We've established processes
in the past years

to prevent the milk
from spoiling.

Shall we go
to the milking parlor?

Come on.

Cherry, we don't need
to do this.

I can learn all of this
from the manual.

We don't need to tour
around the farm.



If you have a complaint,
talk to your dad.

This wasn't my idea.

What's the problem?

Nothing.

Then what happened?

To what?

To you.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Ugh!

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Just ignore the workers.

Pa, I'm just concerned
about them.

Paco, I can't raise
their salaries.

All of our money is going
into construction.

- But, Pa--
- My decision is final.

If they don't like it,
they're free to leave.

I won't stop them.

We can get new workers.

There are plenty of unemployed
people in the next town.

So, you'll let them protest

and cause a commotion?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

They want to cause trouble?

Fine. They'll get what's
coming to them.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CHERRY]
Why did you wear those?

We're not in a mall.

[HUFFS]

I'm going home.

You can't learn everything
from manuals and reports.

I want to show you around

so you can see what
needs to be changed,

especially when it comes
to your workers.

You won't find that
in any report.

Dave, what happened to you?

Why are you acting this way?

Was it something I did?

No.

Then what's wrong?

Why are you avoiding me?

It's like…

…you're a completely
different person.

Cherry, that was years ago.

People grow up.

People change.

[SIGHS]

Can Sir Dave help us?

I doubt it.

The city has changed him.

But, I'll talk to Paco.

[WORKER 1] Oh, it's Sir Paco.

- You're right.
- It's him.

[WORKER 2] Sir.

[HORSE BRAYS]

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Papa didn't agree
to your demand,

but…

I'll fight for you.

I'll find a way.

We've had enough, sir.

- [WORKERS MURMURING]
- Yes, I understand.

I know how you feel.

Mister Ipe, all I'm asking for
is a little more time.

Just a little more time.

I'll find a way.

I'm on your side.

I promise you that.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[COWS MOOING]

[HORSES GALLOPING]

What's your plan?

[SIGHS] I have a few ideas,

but I still need
to talk to Papa.

You did great back there.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Really?

Mm-hmm.

I admire you, because…

you understand
your workers' plight.

What matters is
you're fighting for them.

You didn't leave them hanging.

Don't worry.

I'll think of a solution, too.

[HORSE NEIGHS]

- Paco.
- Thank you, Dave.

- There we go.
- Eat up. You're too thin.

[CHUCKLES]

Are you planning to be
a musician forever, Seb?

[SCOFFS]
I'll be famous someday.

When?

You can't even play
the guitar properly.

- There's the rub.
- Hey, shut it.

Get out of here!

- Dave.
- What?

I'll go with you to Manila.

[PACO]
You'll go to Manila? Why?

I want to study law there.

- You think Papa will agree?
- Of course!

He'll say no.

Besides, I know you'll
just pursue girls.

[CHUCKLING]

- I'm not like Seb.
- Jeez, lay off me.

Just focus on
your studies, okay?

[SEB] Dave, you know me.

I don't take any girl seriously.

Drew's too much of a wuss
to get a girl. [LAUGHS]

The only person here
who's happy is Paco.

What are you talking about?

- [SEB] Don't deny it!
- Jeez.

We're all happy.

So, Paco, uh…

How are things between you
and Cherry?

You too?

We're okay, Dave.

You're okay even though
she's still not your girlfriend?

You're so nosy. We're fine.

- Look, let me make it clear.
- [SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Uh…

We have an understanding.

I'm just waiting
for the right time.

Cherry wants to graduate first

before asking for
her stepmom's blessing.

It's that simple.
That's all there is to it.

[DREW] Let's cheers to that!

To the right time.

To the right time. [CHUCKLES]

- Cheers! To the right time!
- Cheers!

To the right time.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

[COWS MOOING]

Cherry, uh…

You'll show me around
the ranch today, right?

Are you sick?

Look, Cherry, I'm sorry if…

I offended you with
the way I acted.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY] It's fine.

I'll just send you all
the report files you need.

We don't need to
go around the ranch.

No, Cherry.

Show me around.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

[CHERRY] We're almost done
exploring the ranch.

This is the last stop.

[COWS MOOING]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

That's where they'll construct
the new dairy facility.

Well, that's the plan.

But according to the vet,

it's better to build
a clinic there.

[HORSE NEIGHS]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Papa.

Sit down. Where's Drew?

Uh… he's attending
a group study.

When will I see
this family complete again?

Has Drew been going out
a lot lately?

Yeah.

Why haven't you talked to him?

[SCOFFS]

What for, Dave?

Drew isn't a kid anymore.

He can do whatever he wants.

Let's just eat.

[FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING]

Forget that one, bro.

It'll just make you sleepy.

[SCOFFS]

What do you got this time?

This one hits different.

This stuff from the new supplier
is really strong.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[DAVE] Wow.

This place is so beautiful.

You should've told me
we're going to the beach

so I could've brought
my swimming trunks.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

We didn't come here
to take a dip.

[CHEF] Cherry Red Magwayen?

Hi!

Hello.

Come in.

[CHERRY] Thank you
for accommodating us

even though we've only
talked online.

Well, I've tried the rice cakes
and carmelado you sent us.

Thank you so much, Chef.
I hope you'll order from us.

I'm going to place one
for the resort here

and for the souvenir shop.

This is just
the initial order, Cherry.

If it sells well,
I'll place more orders.

Thank you so much, Chef.

You see, while the men
are working at the ranch,

their wives are busy
making various delicacies.

This is the only way
they could live from day to day.

- [WOMAN] Chef?
- [CHEF] Oh, excuse me.

- Cherry Red.
- [CHEF] 10 pieces for delivery.

Are the workers complaining
about their pay?

You really have no idea,
do you?

I'm really sorry.

I didn't know the workers
were suffering.

So, what can I do to help?

It's fine.

Paco and I are
already working on it.

We can handle it.

Even so,

as the eldest,

that's also one of
my responsibilities.

[SIGHS] I feel stupid.

You're not stupid, Dave.

You just have
different priorities now.

Cherry…

I'll make it up to them.

And to you.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

You don't have to do that.

It's all good.

Let's just forget about it.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

- Okay. Thanks, Jason.
- Paco!

Seb.

- It's Drew. [PANTING]
- What about him?

The police caught him
and threw him in jail.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

- Come here!
- Pa!

- [PACO] Pa!
- You bastard!

I gave you everything,
and this is how you repay me?!

I'm not doing drugs, Pa!

- Pa, stop!
- Pa!

You're not doing drugs?!

You already got caught!
Don't deny it!

- Pa, please!
- Papa!

If you mess up one more time,
I'll throw you in jail myself!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Drew…

- Drew.
- Drew!

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

"And the glacier moved
downhill into the ever land,

and the baby dino was
separated from his mama."

Ma, can we stop here?

I don't want them
to be separated.

Why, dear?

Will they be together again
in the end?

Of course.

No mother would allow herself
to be apart from her children.

[CHUCKLING]

Okay. Go to sleep.

I love you.

Love you, too.

- Good night.
- Good night.

- [PACO] No way!
- [SEB] Give it back!

No!

- What's going on?
- Oh!

- Catch me if you can!
- That's enough!

- Look, Ma!
- Cut it out.

- Uh, Ma.
- Hmm?

Seb has a girlfriend.

Seb?

She's not my girlfriend.
We're just texting each other.

But that's how it all starts,
right, Ma?

How would you know?
You've never courted a girl.

You know what?
Enough of that.

Paco, give your brother's
phone back.

You're always fighting.

Seb, have you done
your homework?

Why are you busy
texting someone?

- Gotcha.
- Well?

Give me that, or else…

Sorry, Ma.

[SNICKERING]

Stop it, Paco.

Go back to your room.

Give your brothers a break.

Go to sleep, all right?

- Good night, Ma.
- Good night.

- Behave, okay?
- Yes, Ma.

- Good night, darling.
- Good night.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE SIGHS DEEPLY]

Since when have you been
doing drugs?

Peer pressure. No big deal.

Drew, it's a big deal for us
because we're your family.

What if it becomes an addiction?

You could get in danger.

And as your older brother,

I don't want you to destroy
your life because of drugs.

You talk as if…

you've always been
present in my life.

What?

Ever since Mama died…

I've never felt that
we were a family.

She left a huge void…

in our family.

And Papa?

He was never a father to us.

He only cares
about his business.

He treats us like his employees.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

And you?

You chose to stay in Manila.

You and Paco are lucky.

You were already grown up
when Mama died.

Unlike me.

There was no one
I could run to.

I had no one on my side.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

So, stop acting like
you've been a brother to me.

You've been nothing like one.

So, it's my fault?

No.

I'm just saying it happened.

I already did it.

No big deal.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DOOR CLOSES]

[PACO] Cherry!

Cherry!

Hey!

Are you going home?
I'll give you a ride.

Not yet. I still have to
drop by the plaza.

Why? You have plans?

I'm meeting up with Dave.

We have to settle the permits

and other materials
for the center.

Is that so? Well…

I'll go with you.

I can help you. I have
connections at City Hall.

- Let's go.
- It's fine.

Your father might look for you.

If he has any instructions,
at least you'll be there.

Also, Dave and I agreed
to do it together.

W-Wait. Cherry!

- Tricycle!
- I'll take you there.

- It's not far from here.
- I have to go.

Cherry!

[CHERRY] I'm running late!

[TRICYCLE ENGINE REVVING]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

- [SIGHS LOUDLY]
- [KNOCKING ON DOOR]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Panyong?

[BREATH QUIVERING]

Everly.

[BREATH QUIVERS] Panyong!

- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]
- [BOTH SOBBING]

Finally, we've completed
the requirements!

We should start cooking now.
The chef is waiting for us.

I'm sure that one day,
you'll become the boss.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

I hope so.

Chef Cherry.

Sounds perfect.

I hope I've made it up to you.

What are you talking about?

Look, Cherry,

I know I hurt you before.

You thought
I forgot about you.

But I promise you
that didn't happen.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]
I'm really sorry.

I was really busy.

Busy with girls?

No.

With my studies.

[HUFFS]

I guess I have to remind you.

You did something wrong to me.

Once.

What is it?

Do you remember when

we were hanging out
before you left?

Then, suddenly…

…you kissed me.

But I know that kiss
meant nothing to you.

Cherry.

What?

It meant nothing to you, right?

You just did it for fun.

Cherry, I'm sorry.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

It's okay.
It's in the past, anyway.

Let's forget about it.

Cherry, look. It's just--

- The fishery's still here.
- [PANYONG] Nothing changed.

Everything's still the same.

Pa?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

- [CHERRY SOBS]
- Cherry Red?

- [SNIFFLES]
- Dear?

[SOBS] Pa!

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

Pa!

- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [BOTH SOBBING]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EBS] You were accused
of stealing?

My employer wanted to kill me,

so I ran away
until I reached Oman.

Oh my god, Pa.

I did everything I could
to come home.

What matters is that
we're together now.

And you didn't get hurt.

That's right, dear.

We'll go back to
the way we used to be.

I won't leave anymore.

[SNIFFLES]

I'm staying.

[SNIFFLES]

[EBS] Oh, come on!

Don't forget about me.
I want a hug, too!

Aww.

Dear.

Who is he?

Your boyfriend?

- [EBS CHUCKLES]
- [LAUGHS AWKWARDLY]

No, sir.

Pa, this is Dave,

Don Freddie's son.

It's nice to finally
meet you, sir.

Cherry has told me a lot
about you.

His family helped me a lot.

They adopted me.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Which Don Freddie is this?

Estrella, sir.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

God sent a lot of angels
to take care of me.

Like Ma'am Carol

and the rest of
the Estrella family.

I'll introduce you to
Dave's brothers,

Paco, Seb, and Drew,
on Saturday.

What about Freddie?

Don Freddie is super kind.

They welcomed me
into the mansion.

Sometimes, they even let me
take care of the ranch.

I actually know Freddie.

I know the Estrellas.

Pa, I didn't know that.

Well, it's not like I'm always
chatting with Sir Freddie.

But, you know what?

The Estrella family

has become like my own family.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

You were with Cherry earlier?

Um, yeah.

I brought her home.

Dave, what's going on?

Why are you and Cherry
always together?

[CHUCKLES] We're just
taking care of a few things.

Why?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Or maybe, you're courting her.

What?

Do you have feelings
for Cherry?

Wait, what's--

Just tell me, Dave.

Tell me if you like her or not.

It's that simple, Dave.

Do you have feelings
for Cherry?

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Yes.

Yes, I do.

Happy now?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES SHAKILY]

[DAGAY] Sir.

Your guest is here.

Freddie.

[SIGHS]

Panyong.

Thank you for the kindness
you've shown to my family.

Don't mention it.
It's not a big deal.

I didn't even think
you'd still recognize me.

You see, Cherry told me

that you're living
in luxury now.

She said the ranch
started thriving

after the dairy farm
became yours.

And when the land got a title,
you bought it.

[CHUCKLES]

I almost bragged
to my daughter

that the dairy farm
was my idea.

Mr. Lim and I started it.

But unfortunately--

Unfortunately,

the accident happened.

[DAGAY] Coffee, sir?

[PANYONG] Thank you.

- [SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]
- [DAGAY] Sir.

Thank you.

Heidi died

and Mr. Lim went to jail.

So you bought the land that
we tried to convince the court

to grant to us.

When Mr. Lim's partners
offered the land to me

after it fell
into their ownership,

I didn't waste any more time.

First of all,

it was a clean title.

Second,

you know me when
it comes to business.

Yeah, you did expand it.

By the way,

I'm grateful that Carol gave
my daughter an inheritance.

What happened to Carol again?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

She died in a car crash.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

That's very unfortunate.

I'm sorry to hear that.

Look, I'd love to talk
some more, but…

I've got an important meeting
to attend to.

I understand.
We can talk next time.

Freddie…

Can I work at your ranch?

Sure.

I think we still
have an opening…

…for a security guard.

Thank you.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[COW MOOING]

[PACO] Cherry.

- Cherry.
- Oh.

Um…

Can we talk?

Sure. Right now?

Maybe later,
after you finish your work.

Okay. What is it about?

About us.

I'll meet you at our
usual spot, okay?

Okay.

Okay, then.

I'll see you later.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

[DAVE] Cherry. Hey.

Can we talk?

Will it take long?

Why? Are you in a hurry?

I have to go somewhere.

I'm meeting Paco.

Um… I won't take long.

I just want to
ask you something.

[DAVE EXHALES SHARPLY]

Does Paco have a chance
with you?

Huh?

Just answer my question.

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Where'd that come from?

I just want to know.

I don't know, Dave.

Hey.

What about me?

Do I have a chance?

Uh…

Cherry…

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

I like you.

I always have.

I just didn't know
how to tell you…

or if I should tell you.

But I can't hide
my feelings anymore.

That's why I'm telling you now.

Here.

I've been keeping this
for some time now.

But no matter what I do,

I can't fight the truth.

I love you, Cherry.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

You don't have to say anything.

It's enough for me
that you know.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Dave…

I love you, too.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

Really?

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

- [CHERRY GIGGLES]
- Here. Let me.

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

[CHERRY GIGGLES]

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

- Paco--
- Let me handle it.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco!

Stay here. I'll talk to him.

- [SNIFFLES]
- Paco.

You just couldn't help yourself,
could you?!

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Paco.

Look, I did my best
to forget her.

- I didn't want to ruin our--
- Then what's this?!

What's this all about?!

Why did you do this?!

Tell me.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

Do you really think
we can still be okay

after what you did?

Please.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Let me be happy with her.

Give us a chance.

Because you had yours.

You've always been
like this, Dave.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

You want to have everything.

Paco.

- That's not true.
- Yes, it is.

You're selfish.

I love Cherry.

I've loved her probably
even before you did.

[GRUNTS]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CLICKING TONGUE]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[METAL CLINKING]

Don't make any
sudden movements!

Get up!

Sir Drew?

I'm running an errand for Papa.

At this hour?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Without a key?

E-Exactly. I'll go now.

I'll just come back next time.

Sir Drew.
Why are you really here?

I'll tell Papa myself.

A-About this.

Uh, Mister Panyong…

Can I ask you a favor?

Could you please keep quiet
about this?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EBS] Love?

- Yes?
- When you're done there,

can you also change
the light bulbs

in the other rooms?

Alright.

- [SWITCH CLICKS]
- The light's fixed here.

If I hadn't come back,
you'd be living in the dark.

It's so great to have
a man around the house.

I guess you're all
I've been waiting for.

[EBS GIGGLING]

[BOX CLATTERS]

Dang it!

[GRUNTS]

[SENTIMENTAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SENTIMENTAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[CAROL] Panyong,

I know that what I'm about
to tell you is unforgivable.

What happened to Heidi
wasn't an accident.

Freddie was behind it.

He had the farmhouse
burned to the ground

to force your family to leave.

He did that so he could take
your share of the business.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

That's why I'm asking
for forgiveness, Panyong.

From you and your daughter,
Cherry Red.

Even though I know
that's impossible.

Carol.

[MAN] Sir Drew.

Cherry's dad is looking for
Don Freddie.

D-Did he say why?

He said he wants to speak
to Don Freddie alone.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PANYONG] Cherry, we need
to talk about something.

I'm here at the Estrellas'.

[PHONE BEEPS]

[INHALES DEEPLY]

[DOOR CLOSES]

- [BOTH BREATHING HEAVILY]
- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Mister Panyong?

Who are you texting?

Drew?

Who are you talking to,
Mister Panyong?

Where's your father?!

Have you forgotten,
Mister Panyong?!

We've talked about this, right?

You don't look well.

Just go back inside
and get some rest.

What do you want?! Money?!

How much to make you
shut your mouth?!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

What did you say?

You'll pay me?!

With what?!

The money you stole
from your dad?!

What are you
talking about, huh?!

Shut up!

- [BREATHING HEAVILY]
- Shut your mouth!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You shut up!

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

- Shut up!
- [GROANS]

You shut up! Shut up!

- Pa!
- Stay back.

[CRYING]

Pa!

I think I killed someone, Dave!

I think I killed someone!

I've taken care of it.

I had the body disposed of.

That was Cherry Red's father!

I don't care!

Dave, can we just forget
that this ever happened?

I don't know
what I could do to you.

- [EXHALES LOUDLY]
- [GLASS SHATTERS]

Go to the US with Drew.

Do everything you can
to make the suspect pay.

We can't have a murderer
running loose around here.

Paco, where's Dave?

Where is he?

Paco.

You're in charge
while I'm gone.
