- [DAVE GROANS] Cherry! Cherry!
- [CHERRY SOBS] Dave…

Don't worry, Cherry.

It's going to be okay.

Dave! [SOBS]

Who are you?

What do you want?

If you want money,
we'll give it to you.

But let Cherry go.

Just take me instead!

Please, just take me.



- Don't hurt Cherry.
- Tie them up.

- No! Dave!
- Cherry!

- Dave!
- Cherry!

- [CHERRY CRYING]
- Cherry…

- Dave! Dave!
- Just take me.

[CHERRY SOBS]

[DAVE] Aren't you going to talk?

Tell me what you want!

Just please leave Cherry
out of this.

Take me instead.

- [SOBS] Where are you, Dave?
- Cherry…

- Dave!
- Cherry!

- Dave, where--
- It's okay.

I'm right here, Cherry.
Don't worry.



Okay? We're going
to get through this.

[PANICKED BREATHING]

[GRUNTS, SIGHS SHARPLY]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

- [BUSY TONE]
- [PACO SIGHS SHARPLY]

I can't reach Cherry's phone.

Same with Dave.
He's not picking up my calls.

- [SIGHS]
- Paco…

What if they already left us
and eloped?

This is your fault, Paco.

- This is your fault!
- That's enough.

Becca, this is not
the right time for this!

Then tell me what's happening!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBS]

Why are they doing this?

- [SOBBING]
- [BREATHING HEAVILY]

P-Paco…

- What if Paco's in danger?
- No…

- Dave…
- Cherry.

You have to stay strong.

Nothing bad will happen to Paco.

D-Did he tell you anything?

- [SOBBING]
- [SIGHS SHARPLY]

It's politics.

I'm sure his political rivals
are behind this.

[CHERRY SOBBING]

[DAVE SIGHS SHARPLY]

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS SHARPLY]

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

Find out where Dave and Cherry
were last seen,

and look into
what happened to them.

Do it now, please.

- Yes, sir.
- Go.

Paco, it's getting late.

Have you heard from them?

The police are on their way
to help us.

The police?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Let's wait
until this day is over.

[INHALES DEEPLY, EXHALES DEEPLY]

We should just let them panic.

Let them get worried sick,
thinking where these two are.

Let them suffer.
Make them feel helpless.

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS]

Where are my brothers?

Where are Seb and Drew?

Find them and bring them here.

They might be in danger, too.

- Get going now.
- Yes, sir.

[SIGHS]

This is serious, right?

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[PHONE BUZZING]

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYS, THEN FADES]

[ERLINDA] Get out of there.
We already got your job done.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Babe, have you met
Florabelle's partner?

Not yet.

She's never brought him
to our campaigns.

So, she hasn't told you
anything about him?

Why would she tell me anything?
We're not that close.

Besides, if her partner
were beating her,

she would've hidden
her bruises, right?

Do you like her?

Like her?

Well, you know, as a publicist,

as a person,

or as a friend.

She's all right.

She's nice to me.

But she seems like
a woman of many secrets.

What secrets?

I don't know. They're called
secrets for a reason.

Why are you suddenly curious?

No reason.

I just feel like
she needs a friend.

But I'm not sure
if she's a good person.

And if her partner
really is hurting her,

then she should report it
to the authorities, right?

Of course.

You're right.

Women should learn
to fight, too.

Love shouldn't be an excuse

to let someone
treat you like trash.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[KNOCKING ON DOOR]

Sir Seb, Sir Paco wants you
in the mansion.

Did you see the woman
I was with?

[SECURITY] We didn't see
anybody else here, sir.

Are you sure?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[BUSY TONE]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CHERRY SOBBING]

[SIGHS] Cherry…

- Dave.
- [SIGHS SHARPLY]

Dave?

- [DAVE BREATHING HEAVILY]
- [EXHALES SHARPLY]

What do you want from us, huh?

Dave…

You're still not going to talk?

Can't you hear me?

Please, talk to us.

- [GASPS, BREATH QUIVERS]
- Please!

- Tell us! What do you want?
-[CHERRY SOBBING]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Tell us!

Dave…

[DAVE] Speak up!

[BREATH QUIVERING]

- [DAVE SIGHS SHARPLY]
- [BREATH QUIVERING]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco.

[SIGHS] Cherry and Dave still
haven't come home.

They're together right now.

But earlier, someone called me.

They threatened to hurt Cherry.

Oh, my God. Ouch! Ouch!

- Becca!
- Becca.

[COLLEEN] Just sit down.

I'm getting stressed out
from all this.

This is not good for my baby.

Ow!

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Is this because
of your candidacy, Paco?

Most likely.

They probably want me
to back out

since I'm currently
leading the surveys.

But I still haven't gotten
any texts or calls

to confirm if they really
have been kidnapped.

Kidnapped?

If those two
are just fooling around,

I'll beat Dave up!

[COLLEEN] Let's avoid
negative thoughts for now.

Maybe their phone batteries
are just dead.

[BECCA] Maybe.

But it's very unusual for Dave
to not find a way to contact me.

The police are currently
looking for them.

As for the rest of you,

you should stay here for now
just to be safe.

I'm heading out.

I need to find my wife.

Paco! What if you get hurt?

I don't care, Seb.

Cherry's missing.

My wife is missing.
I need to find her.

Then I'm coming with you.

You can't go out there alone.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

We didn't notice anything.

Did you see anything
suspicious or unusual?

No. And nobody came here
to buy our votes, either.

Okay.

This was the last area
they went to.

- Officer.
- Sir Paco.

This is Leah.

She says she saw everything.
Go ahead, tell him.

What happened?

Earlier,

around 5:00 PM, while I was
walking down the street,

I saw a woman being abducted.

And?

[LEAH] A person dragged her
inside a white van,

then her male companion
tried to stop them.

[PACO] Were those people
Cherry and Dave?

[LEAH] I couldn't make out
their faces, sir,

but they were both dragged
inside the van.

Can you recall the van's
license plate?

No, sir.

No, you have to.
You have to remember!

Paco!

That's enough.

- But--
- Paco, focus.

- Just relax.
- Relax?

Seb, how can I relax?
My wife's been kidnapped.

Our brother's been kidnapped!

Okay, look.

I'll check all the footage from
the CCTV cameras along the road.

I can't wait that long.

- But there's nothing else--
- What should I wait for?

Their call?

Seb, what if they're
already dead?

What if they've been killed?

You want us to just sit here
and keep waiting?

I will not do that.

I have to act now.

Dave?

[SOBS]

What's going to happen to us?

Cherry…

As long as I'm here,
nothing bad will happen to you.

I promise. Okay?

- Nothing.
- [DOOR CLANGING]

- Dave? Dave?
- Cherry.

- What are you doing?
- Dave?

Dave!

[WHIMPERING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

- Dave?
- What--

- Dave! Dave!
- Where are you taking me?

Dave, don't leave me!

- [MAN] Let's go!
- Mister, please!

Don't hurt Cherry!

- Cherry!
- Dave!

- Dave!
- Cherry!

Dave!

[CRYING]

[PANICKED BREATHING]

Dave!

[WHEEZING]

Paco. Paco. Seb. Any updates?

Paco? Seb, what happened?

Dave and Cherry
have been kidnapped.

- [COLLEEN GASPS]
- What?

- My God!
- Kidnapped?

[COLLEEN] Becca.

- Just relax. Let's sit down.
- [BREATHING HEAVILY]

- [BECCA GRUNTS]
- Come on.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[GASPING]

Dave! Dave!

[WHEEZING CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

- [HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]
- [MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[SCREAMING]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

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

You know what?
I'll give it to her.

- No, I'll do it.
- Let me do it.

I'll do it.
Half of allowance went here.

But I chose the design.

- I'll do it.
- No, I'll do it.

- Cherry!
- Oh.

Have you been waiting here
for long?

Yes, but we went first
to the mall.

We bought you a gift.

[ALL] Happy birthday!

Thank you! Wow!

- My goodness.
- Open it.

See it yourself.

- [ALL GASP]
- Wow.

- Is this mine?
- Of course.

So that your shoes can retire,

- it's already talking.
- [LAUGHTER]

- Thank you.
- Try it on.

Try it on because
we don't know your shoe size.

[DAVE] We just guessed it.

- It fits perfectly.
- It fits perfectly.

- You just guessed it?
- Yeah.

- Thank you.
- So Dave's the only one

who gets a thank you?

Of course, I want to say
thank you to all of you.

[ALL] Group hug.

[CHERRY] Thank you.

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

Let's stay in the shade.
Come on.

Be careful. Come on.

- Ouch.
- Are you okay?

I told you, I should've worn
rubber shoes instead.

But rubber shoes
won't match your outfit.

Look what happened.

You shouldn't have
gotten me sandals.

I'm not used to wearing this.

- It's painful.
- Let me see.

Ouch.

My goodness.

I told you.

Cherry, I'm sorry.

But thank you
for dancing with me.

I wanted to come, too.
Sometimes, I want to have fun.

Thank you for inviting me.

Cherry, I love you.

I love you so much.

Can you be my girlfriend?

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

[PHONE BUZZING]

Hello? Dave?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Where are you?

What about Cherry? Where is she?

Paco, listen.

They have us.

Who?

Dave, who are they?

Prepare 50 million pesos.

Fifty million?

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Wait for our next call.

That's when we'll tell you
what to do next.

[DAVE SNIFFLES]

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

[VOICE BREAKING] If not…

Dave, what…

What's going to happen?

We'll tell Cherry…

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[INHALES SHARPLY]

…that Drew was the one
who killed Mister Panyong.

Dave…

What do you mean, Drew?

Dave.

What are you-- Dave?

Dave!

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

- "Think about Cherry"
- [SOBBING]

Dave!

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]
- [SHUDDERING]

Dave?

- Dave! Don't leave me!
- Where are you taking me?

Dave! Don't leave me!

- Move!
- Sir!

Sir, please! Don't hurt Cherry!

- Cherry!
- [SCREAMS]

- [DAVE] Cherry!
- [SCREAMS]

[DAVE GRUNTS]

[SINISTER MUSIC PLAYING]

[GROANS]

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

[SINISTER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[HUFFS]

No…

I can't say this to Paco.

No way.

[GOON]
It's either you'll read that…

…or we'll kill Cherry Red
in front of you.

- [PANICKED BREATHING]
- [SINISTER MUSIC CONTINUES]

- [WHIMPERS]
- [LOUD THUD]

[DAVE] Prepare 50 million pesos.

Fifty million?

- [BREATHING HEAVILY]
- [GRIM MUSIC PLAYING]

Wait for our next call.

[DAVE] We'll tell you

the next thing
you have to do. [SNIFFLES]

[VOICE BREAKING]
If you don't comply…

[GRIM MUSIC CONTINUES]

Dave?

I-If I don't comply, then what?

We'll tell Cherry…

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS]

that it was Drew…

…who killed Mang Panyong.

Dave…

Did I hear that right?

Dave!

What do you mean-- Dave!

[PACO] Dave!

[SOBBING]

THINK OF CHERRY

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

[SNIFFLES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

Governor.

Paco.

I brought General Ibanez

so he can stay on top
of the situation.

Sir.

Paco.

Any update on them?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

They called.

What did they say?

[SIGHS]

They demanded a ransom.
Fifty million pesos.

Fifty million pesos?

Yes.

They're asking
for 50 million pesos.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[PANICKED BREATHS]

Dave…

[WHIMPERS, SNIFFLES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Dave…

[PANICKED BREATHS]

[DAVE GRUNTS]

Cherry! Cherry!

- Dave!
- Cherry!

- [THUDS]
- [DAVE GRUNTS]

[GROANS]

Cherry… Cherry!

- [BREATHING HEAVILY]
- Cherry, are you okay?

- Cherry!
- Dave!

Are you okay?

- [PANICKED BREATHING]
- Cherry, are you okay?

Look. I'm here, Cherry.
Just breathe.

- [BREATHES HEAVILY]
- Breathe. Deep breaths.

Deep breaths.

- Do it.
- I can't…

- I can't!
- [WHISPERS] Cherry…

Follow me.

- Inhale… [INHALES DEEPLY]
- [WHIMPERS]

Exhale. [EXHALES DEEPLY]

Inhale. [INHALES DEEPLY]

- [WHIMPERS]
- Inhale.

- Do it.
- [SOBS]

[INHALES DEEPLY]

- Exhale.
- [EXHALES LOUDLY]

- [INHALES SHARPLY, SNIFFLES]
- Last one.

[INHALES DEEPLY]

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

- [CHERRY INHALES SHARPLY]
- Okay?

Do you feel better?
Are you okay now?

Cherry, are you okay now?

Dave…

- Yes?
- What did they do to you?

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Nothing.

[INHALES DEEPLY]

They just used me
to demand for ransom.

- [CHERRY BREATHING HEAVILY]
- [SIGHS]

What… What about Paco?

Is he okay?

Did something bad happen to him?

Cherry, he's fine.

Paco is safe at home.

- He's looking for us.
- [CHERRY BREATHES HEAVILY]

Cherry, listen to me…

Don't worry.

Paco will save us.

[CHERRY BREATHING HEAVILY]

He won't let them harm you.

He'll find a way.

Okay?

We'll get out of here.

- [WHIMPERS]
- Okay?

[BOTH BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYS]

[INHALES SHARPLY]
I'll give them the money.

Then make it
an entrapment operation.

What if something happens
to my wife?

We'll make sure
nothing will happen to her.

No, no. I will not risk it.

If they want 50 million,
then I'll give it to them.

What about the kidnappers?

We can go after them
once Cherry and Dave are safe.

But until then,
I will not risk my brother.

I will not risk my wife.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Why are they leaving us out?

Dave's our brother, too.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Hey! Where are you going?

- [SIGHS HEAVILY]
- What's the plan?

We'll impose a news blackout.

We can't let news get out about
Cherry and Dave's situation.

Okay.

But how will we save them?

Paco will pay the ransom.

What?

I thought the business
isn't doing well, Paco.

Where will you get that money?

I'll find a way.

You'll find a way?

How? By selling the ranch?

What about our employees?

I don't care!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Cherry and Dave's safety
is our priority.

Where's Drew?

Tori?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Is Tori home?

[FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING]

Drew?

[WHISPERS] Let's talk over here.

Why did you suddenly disappear?

Is something wrong?

Drew, we can't see
each other anymore, okay?

Uh-- What? Why?

What about what happened
last night?

What the hell was that?
Goodbye sex?

It doesn't matter.
Let's stop seeing each other.

Tori… I need you right now.

I really, really need you.

Drew, stop needing me, okay?

You don't deserve me.

[INHALES DEEPLY,
EXHALES SHARPLY]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

No!

[PANICKED BREATHING]

- Cherry?
- [WHIMPERING]

- Dave!
- Cherry…

Cherry. Hey.

Cherry.

- [WHIMPERING]
- I'm here.

- I'm here. Calm down.
- [SOBBING] Dave…

- Hey. Cherry.
- [SOBBING]

Hey. Calm down.

I'm here.

- [SOBS]
- It's okay.

Hey, it's okay.

It's okay, Cherry.

- [DAVE BREATHING HEAVILY]
- [PANICKED BREATHING]

- [WHIMPERS]
- It's okay.

- It's okay.
- [BREATH QUIVERING]

[WHIMPERING]

- It's okay.
- [SOBBING]

[WHISPERING] I'm here.

- Cherry. Hey.
- [SOBBING]

Cherry, look at me.

[CHERRY SOBBING]

It's okay.

[WHIMPERING]

Cherry. Hey.

[CHERRY SOBBING]

It's okay.

[GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

I understand you're emotional
right now, Paco.

But think about
the general's proposal.

I can't risk Cherry's safety
for that.

So, you'll pay the ransom

without the assurance that
Dave and Cherry are alive?

This is the safest way
to save them,

so I will take my chances
with this.

You know that the business
will never recover

if you do this.

Don't ruin your father's legacy.

I don't care about his legacy!

I can lose the ranch,
but not Cherry.

I can't lose her.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

That's only 20 million.

We're still short.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

You know I did
everything for you.

[SOBS]

But this one?

Let me handle it. [SNIFFLES]

[SNIFFLES]

I'm sorry.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

[SOBBING]

[SNIFFLING, SOBBING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

I hope you'll forgive me.

[INHALES DEEPLY,
EXHALES SHARPLY]

- [SIGHS DEEPLY]
- [GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

No matter what happens
to us, Cherry…

[INHALES DEEPLY]

I'm willing
to give up my life…

- [BREATH QUIVERING]
- [DAVE SIGHS]

…just so you'll live.

[SNIFFLES, SOBS]

- [INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS]
- [SOBBING]

If this is the only way

I can make up
for all my mistakes,

then I'm not letting you go.

- [CHERRY SOBBING]
- [GLOOMY MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE SIGHS SHARPLY]

[SOBBING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[TORI] Where are you going,
Mama Erl?

You must be on your way
to see Dave and Cherry.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Dave! Dave!

- Dave!
- Please…

Please! Not now!

Cherry's all shaken up!

Please, have mercy on her!

Please!

- Cherry… Cherry!
- Dave!

- Cherry!
- Dave!

Dave, don't leave me!

[DAVE]
Don't hurt Cherry, please!

Cherry!

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CRYING]

Dave, don't leave me!

Dave!

[CRYING]

Is it true? Drew did it?

Did he kill Mang Panyong?

Yes, Paco.

It's the truth.

[PACO] I promise you…

I will do anything to make sure
nothing ever hurts you again.

Once we're together again,

nothing will tear
us apart anymore.

[GOON] Did you prepare
the money?

Yes. I have it with me.

- Fifty million
- And the police?

[TIRES SCREECH]

They're not here. It's just me.

If this is the end,
I deserve this.

[MAN] Hey, stop!

[GASPS]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC]
