[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

[RAIN PATTERING]

Cherry…

Cherry, don't worry.

My godfather's a good lawyer.

Once we have a suspect
and file a case,

he'll definitely win.

I'm sure of it.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

We'll get justice
for Mister Panyong.

I know you're going
through a lot right now.



I know your problems
keep piling up.

Mister Panyong's gone, and…

Dave also left.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Have you talked to him?

Maybe he's still settling in.

But if you want,

we can call him later.

What do you say?

We already talked

before he left.

Everything's clear to me now.

He ended things between us.

All that matters to me now is
getting justice for my father.



[BREATH QUIVERS]

Only a monster would
do that to him.

Cherry.

We'll find out
who did that to him.

We'll get justice
for your father.

I'm on your side.

Just trust me, okay?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Tell me more about your life
in the Philippines.

I don't have to tell you
anything, doc.

Drew, do you know that
we came from

the same province
in the Philippines?

- Look, I'm your friend.
- No, you're not!

I'm not telling you
or anyone else anything.

[LAPTOP CHIMING]

[CHIMING CONTINUES]

[SIGHS]

[CHIMING CONTINUES]

Why are you calling?

What did you say to Cherry?

-[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]
- [SIGHS]

Paco, you know what Drew
is going through.

Besides, that's between
me and Cherry.

- It doesn't concern you.
- Just like that, Dave?

You just tossed her aside?

Paco, I don't need
to explain myself to you.

Dave, you hurt Cherry.

You broke up with her
after getting her hopes up!

[INHALES SHARPLY]

Paco, why are you so upset?

Do you think I want this?

Doesn't this work
in your favor?

How dare you!

I'm thinking of Cherry,
not myself.

[LOUD CLATTER]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, love, I thought
it'd never last

Even if it's far away

- Yes, time flies so fast
- [CROWD CHEERING]

- But there is nothing…
- Seb, can we take a picture?

Follow me back on IG.

- Thank you. Okay.
- Follow us.

- Can we take a picture?
- Seb!

- When's your next gig?
- Let's take a picture!

Sure. Hold on.

- Oh.
- [BANDMATE] Thank you.

[SHUTTER CLICKS]

- Thank you!
- Thanks for the support.

[BANDMATE] How about me?
[LAUGHS]

- Can I see?
- [SEB] Nice one! Cheers!

[BANDMATE] Cheers!

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

Don't you want a selfie?

Uh…

No, thanks.

You look familiar.

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

Uh…

Aren't you Cherry's friend?

Uh…

She's my best friend.

Best friend?
Why haven't we met before?

[BANDMATE]
It's hard to keep track,

what with all the girls
you know. [LAUGHS]

- Hey!
- [GLASSES CLINK]

- Cheers.
- [SEB] You're silly.

- I'm going home.
- But it's still early.

Hey, where are you going?

We have another set.

[BANDMATE] Miss,
Seb wants you to stay.

[WOMAN] How lucky!

[LAUGHTER]

I have to go.
Take care, okay?

Bye.

[BRIGHT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Auntie.

[EBS GROANS]

[SIGHS]

W-What happened to me?

The doctor said you had
alcohol intoxication.

You almost died, Auntie.

You should've let me die.

I don't have money
for another funeral.

Silly girl!

- [BOTH LAUGH]
- [SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

[SNIFFLES, LAUGHS]

[SNIFFLES]

Eat up, so you can
recover quickly.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Cherry.

Thank you.

Don't leave me.

Don't leave me, too.

Auntie.

I'll never leave you.

[SOBS SOFTLY, SNIFFLES]

[SIGHS]

Okay, Uncle.

If you find any
new leads or suspects

in Mister Panyong's case,

please let me know.

Okay, thank you.

- A suspect?
- Oh, Pa.

They have a suspect
in Panyong's case?

[SIGHS]

None yet, according to Uncle.

They don't have any
witnesses either,

but he's monitoring
the case closely.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Pa, it's been weeks.

The longer this goes on,

the harder it becomes
for Cherry to get justice.

Don't worry, I'll call
General Corcuera.

He might be able to help.

Pa, do you think…

Paco, I can't promise anything.

We'll see what we can do.

Okay.

Thank you, Pa.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Cherry.

- Let me help you with that.
- Oh, it's fine.

This is for you.
It's still hot.

I just bought it.

- Thanks.
- Sure.

Uh, Cherry…

Papa said he'll contact
his friend who's a general.

Maybe he can help
with your father's case.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

Really?

[CHUCKLES] Paco.

Thank you, Paco.

Thank you so much.

Anything for you, Cherry.

I won't let you
go through this alone.

I'm always here for you.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Wait, is your father back?

Uh, yeah.

He just helped
Dave and Drew settle in.

He came back right away.

They're okay.

Come inside.
I'll make you breakfast.

[SEB] Get anything you want.

That looks good. Get some more.

I forgot to ask your name
the other night.

From what I recall,
you could talk that night.

That's 270 pesos.

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

Dude, hold this.

270 pesos.

Here.

We have a gig later.

Come watch with your friend.

Alright?

Smile, will you?

Dave!

Hi, Drew.

- How are you feeling?
- I'm fine.

Dave, get me out of here,
please?

Drew, you've only
been here a week.

I don't care.

We've talked about this.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Will I really get better here?

You have to.

Look, Drew.

I need to make sure
I won't lose you.

Hey.

Look at me.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You need to get through this.

At least make this right.

Okay?

[SIGHS]

Okay.

[SIGHS]

[WAVES ROLLING]

We haven't found any leads

on whoever did this to you.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING]

But, don't worry, Pa.

I'll get to the bottom of this.

I will not stop until justice
is served for your death.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

Even if it's
the last thing I do.

I asked a general
I'm friends with

to help us with
your father's case.

But according to him,

they currently have no leads.

Not even a witness.

For now, it's considered
a dead case.

[SCOFFS]

Now both Panyong
and the case are dead.

Life sucks, doesn't it?

[EVERLY CHUCKLES DRYLY]

Maybe the authorities
are missing something.

Maybe the witness
is too scared to talk.

- Maybe--
- Cherry.

I know this is hard to accept.

It's hard for me, too.

Panyong was a friend to me.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

But I don't think he'd want
to see you suffering.

He'd rather see you
carry on with your lives.

Are you saying
we should just move on?

Everly, what I'm saying is…

If you had any plans as a family

back when Panyong
was still alive,

go through with it.

Now, is there anything
you'd like to do

aside from living here?

Well, Panyong and I planned
to move to Manila.

Good!

Do that.

Do you want to start
a business there?

I will help you.

Uh…

Auntie.

Thank you, sir,

but you've done more
than we could ask.

Helping us with Papa's funeral
is already more than enough.

But I'd rather stay here
than move somewhere else

until justice is served
for my father's death.

Don't take this the wrong way.

But what's the point?

Aren't your dreams
far more important?

Start over.

It's important to me that we
get justice for my father.

Everly, Cherry.

Think about it carefully.

The money's right here.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

- [DAVE] Hello, Pa.
- [FREDDIE] How's Drew?

I can't visit him
until next month.

But he's doing fine.

[PANTING]

How's Cherry Red doing?

Well, I offered…

to help her start over
somewhere else,

but she turned it down.

What?!

You told her to leave?

Dave, at that time, I thought

that would be best
for all of us.

But I couldn't convince her
to leave.

Anyway, it seems that
she's okay now.

- What do you mean "okay"?
- Well…

She's back to work.

And I would sometimes
hear her laughing

whenever she's hanging out
with your brother.

Which one?

Paco?

Dave, it doesn't matter who.

Stop thinking about Cherry.
Just worry about…

yourself and Drew.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

May I see your tongue?

Up. Down.

Okay.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm thinking we can sell
ice cream as well.

I just need to study
how we'd make the packaging,

and we can definitely
expand our product line.

That's a great idea!

[COLLEEN] For you, Cherry.

Someone asked me
to give it to you.

Who is it from?

From him.

Enjoy your taho.
[GIGGLES]

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Thank you very much, everyone.

With our united effort,

we managed to finish
all the orders.

[APPLAUSE]

Cherry, we should be the ones
thanking you.

We wouldn't have this livelihood
center if it weren't for you.

I'm just doing what I can
to help you.

Too bad Sir Dave isn't here

to witness
your project flourish.

Let's not talk about
those who aren't here.

After all, this isn't for him.

This project is for you.
For all of you.

No, Cherry.

This project is for all of us.

[CHUCKLES]

[CHERRY GASPS]

Sir Paco suggested the name

and we all agreed.

[APPLAUSE]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Cherry, there's a job vacancy
at the plant.

We need someone to head
the quality control department.

Huh? What happened to Jinky?

She married a foreigner
and she's migrating soon.

Are you interested?

In marrying a foreigner?

[CHUCKLES]

I'll talk to Papa.

I'll recommend you
for the position.

- Do you think I can handle it?
- Of course!

Of course you can!

[PACO CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

With your skills
and your dedication,

you definitely can.

Yeah, right!

- [CHUCKLES]
- Cherry, I'm serious.

You're very much qualified
for that position.

That's why I'm confident
in recommending you to Papa.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Don't bother putting in
a good word for me.

I'll apply for the position.

If I get the job,
then it's great.

But what about
the livelihood center?

They need me there.

You can handle both, Cherry.

Thanks, Paco.

Sometimes I wonder
why life's like this.

One minute,
you're on cloud nine.

And then, the next…

you feel so down.

It's driving me nuts.

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

Don't worry too much.

You see, that's just
how life works.

You may be sad now.

But better days will come.

Right?

[CHUCKLES]

I hope you're right.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Where's your ticket?

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

I sold it.

Oh… So you're a scalper.

What do you want?

Nothing.

I just want to know
your name.

I see you're playing
hard to get.

Colleen.

Colleen…

Okay.

Do you feel butterflies
when I'm around, Colleen?

What?!

[CHUCKLES]

You're so full of yourself!

Come on! Yes or no?

Why would I feel
that around you?

You see, other girls
would get butterflies

whenever I approach them.

Some can't even help
but squeal.

I'm not like other girls.

Until what time
will you be here?

Until all of these are sold.
Will you buy them all?

I'll just come back
for you later.

Dude, let's go.

Pa, just let Cherry head
the quality control department.

Tsk.

I can't decide on a whim, Paco.

Besides, I already have someone
in mind for the position.

But Pa, Cherry is qualified.

She's a college graduate.

And she has been working
for us for years.

Yes, she has years
of experience

working at the ranch
and at the farm,

but none at the plant.

She won't just milk
some cows there.

Paco, we're talking about
a managerial position.

- You know that.
- Yes, Pa.

But Cherry's smart.

She can learn
the ropes easily.

And she has the ins and outs
of our farm operations down pat.

Pa, you've witnessed
many times

how she would rise
to every occasion.

She worked at home
and at the ranch

while she was studying
without making any mistake.

She is responsible and
dedicated to her work.

I'll bet my life on her.

So please, Pa.

Give her a chance.

Please.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SEB] Next time,
my services won't be free.

[COLLEEN CHUCKLES]

Is this how you pick up girls?

Hmm… no.

I just do this.

Yuck!

- "Yuck"? Really?
- Yeah! Yuck.

- [CHUCKLES]
- Hang on.

Did you just go to our gig
to accompany your friend?

Were you just forced to go?

[CHUCKLES]

I came to watch the gig, too.

I bought my own ticket,
you know?

But, I didn't go there for you.

Huh?

Then for who?

For the music.

You're good.

And handsome?

I wish you weren't, though.

Why?

If you weren't handsome,
maybe I could like you.

Oh, so you're saying
that you like ugly men.

Is that it?

Let's just say
I'm not delusional.

-[PLAYFUL MUSIC PLAYING]
- [THUNDER RUMBLING]

It's about to rain.

- Come on.
- Let's go.

This is our old house.
No one lives here now.

Really? What a waste!

[GASPS] You're all so cute here!

You and your brothers
look adorable!

- Is this you? [GASPS]
- [URINE FLOWING]

You know, whenever Cherry
talks about you guys,

I feel like I'm hearing
a fairytale about four princes.

[TOILET FLUSHING]

This is my room.

Actually, no girl's
ever been here before.

- Huh?
- Mm-hmm.

You're special.

I only did the others
in the stables.

What?!

Nothing. [CHUCKLES]

Here's a towel.
Go dry yourself.

Thanks. [CHUCKLES]

Is this you?!

You were so cute!

You all look happy here.

Other families here in
General Luna can't compare.

Your family is perfect.

No one's perfect, Colleen.

When I start building
a family of my own,

I'll do everything I can
to make our lives

as close to perfect
as possible.

So, I'm working hard
for that dream.

As close to perfect?

That's fine with me.

Well? Shall we start?

[MELLOW MUSIC PLAYING]

[KNOCKS]

May I have your attention?
I want you to meet someone.

Let me introduce you

to your new quality control
supervisor, Cherry Red.

Good day, everyone.

Just call me Cherry.

Good day to you too,
Ma'am Cherry!

Wow! Your name sounds
so sweet, Ma'am Cherry!

- Congrats, Ma'am Cherry!
- [CLAPPING]

Thank you!

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

[PACO] You know what, Cherry?
I feel like…

I've worked on this ranch
my whole life.

I know everything there is
to know about it.

I think I've also memorized
the marks on each cow,

and who each one's parents are.

[CHERRY] That's amazing.

You know what?

I sometimes feel
that way too.

[PACO CHUCKLES] I don't know.

I still wake up excited on days
that I have to work here.

There's still so much
for me to learn,

and there's still a lot
for me to discover.

I guess I just really like
what I'm doing.

And…

I like…

I like who I'm working with.

[CHERRY] You mean, the cows
and the horses?

[PACO CHUCKLES]

[PACO] Yes! The cows
and the horses!

Who else?

Whatever exhaustion
I feel disappears

whenever I see them happy.

[CHERRY CHUCKLES]

[CHERRY] Could it be…

because you're
their real father?

[PACO] If that were true,
what does that make you?

[CHERRY CHUCKLES]

That would make me…

their godmother.

[CHERRY CHUCKLES]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

[PACO EXHALES LOUDLY]

Okay.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

I'll see you again tomorrow.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

Thanks.

[CHERRY]
Get some rest, alright?

- You too.
- [CHUCKLES]

[PACO SIGHS]

Alright.

- Take care.
- I'll go now.

Cherry.

Sweet dreams.

[PACO] Good night.

- [CHERRY] Good night.
- Good night.

- [CHUCKLES]
- [CHERRY GIGGLES]

[PACO] Bye.

[ENGINE REVS]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Cherry Red.

Why don't you date Paco?

He seems to like you a lot.

Why make him wait?

- [SIGHS] Auntie.
- Yeah?

I am not yet ready.

[SCOFFS]

I'll focus on myself first.
And you, of course.

Me? Oh, please.

And Papa's case, too.

- [SIGHS DEEPLY]
- [EXHALES LOUDLY]

We haven't found
any leads on his death.

To be honest, Cherry,

I'm not sure if your father's
case will still be solved.

If that's what
you're waiting for,

get ready to stay single
for the rest of your life.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Where are you going?

- I have a gig.
- Alright. Good luck.

- Take care.
- Paco.

- Yeah?
- Uh…

[SEB INHALES SHARPLY]

It seems you and Cherry
are getting too close.

So?

Nothing. It's just that…

There are other girls out there.

Are you against it?

[CHUCKLES]

It's not that, Paco.

But she is Dave's ex-girlfriend.

I'm just worried that
it'll become an issue.

Seb.

I courted Cherry first.

Remember?

Dave just stole her from me.

You mean, even without him here,

I still can't pursue her?

Paco, no one's saying that.

Do I really need to
consider Dave's feelings

when he was the one
who broke Cherry's heart?

I'm not selfish.

But I'm no saint either.

Seb, I love her.

I really do.

You have a point.

It's your life after all.

I just don't want
you and Dave fight.

I'm just concerned.

Okay?

Thank you.

But I know what
I'm doing, alright?

Okay.

If you say so.

I'll get going.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[WOMAN] We're leaving,
Ma'am Cherry.

Okay, take care.

[WOMAN] Bye, ma'am.

- Take care.
- Bye, sir.

Cherry.

It's time to go home.
You're still working?

Mr. Rodriguez made
a huge order.

He wants them delivered
right away.

It's stressing me out!

Cherry.

Leave that for tomorrow.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

You need to relax.

Come on.
I'll take you somewhere.

Cherry, when I told you
to do your best,

I didn't mean you should
tire yourself to death.

Working helps me forget
everything else.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

You still have feelings
for him, huh?

I don't know.

It's been so long, but…

I still can't forget him.

I'm so stupid, aren't I?

Take it easy.

You don't need to rush.

Do you know what you need?

You need to rest.

Breathe.

[INHALES DEEPLY]

- [EXHALES LOUDLY]
- There you go.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

What are you looking at?

Your necklace.

It's from your brother.

Maybe I should
stop wearing it.

You'll stop wearing it?
I'll throw it away.

Wait, Paco.

When I'm ready,

I'll throw it away myself.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS]

Let's go.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Cherry, I've been meaning
to give you this.

I love you, Cherry.

I love you, too.

[DAVE] Cherry Red.

I have to end things
between us.

Cherry.

Cherry, I love you.

Love?

You love me?

Why now, Dave?

Why do you have to leave
when I need you most?!

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

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

- That one looks like you!
- And that looks like you.

- Which one?
- That one!

- No!
- And that one's Paco.

- Right. And that one's…
- [GIGGLES]

That's Drew.

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

[CRYING]

Sir, during your investigation,
were you able to find out

the last place
Mister Panyong went to?

He was at your ranch,
Cuatro Estrella.

I have nothing to say
to you, Cherry.

I know that even before,

you've always liked
my brother more than me.

Cherry, I love you so much.

I'm willing to wait
until your heart heals

and it's ready to let
someone else in.

Dave is coming home.
That's good news, right?

You know that play a very
important role in this family.

I want you to remember
that above all else,

you are family to us.

The news said the storm
won't hit us.

Paco's still out
on a delivery.

I can't just wait here.

You're so focused on
who isn't here,

you don't see who's
right in front of you.

Paco!

[TIRES SCREECH]
