[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

- There's plenty of food.
- Good morning.

- Morning.
- Hi, love.

[DAVE] Wow. You're all here.

Yes. There's a prayer session
for Papa later.

Dig in!

I made all your father's
favorite food.

- [SEB] Wow!
- Let's eat.

Looks like I'll be
eating a lot.

Papa's favorite food is also
our favorite food, right?

- You pig. [CHUCKLES]
- Here.



[BECCA]
Dave, why don't you join us?

- Come.
- Thank you.

[SIGHS]

- Here.
- Oh, thank you.

Dave, you should sit
in your father's chair.

That's right, Dave.

You take Papa's place.

- [UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]
- [SIGHS]

No, I'm fine. I'll sit here.

I want to commemorate
your father

because he was the kindest
person I know.

[PACO] That's true.

Papa did everything for us.

He worked hard
and made sacrifices



so we could have
all these blessings.

Exactly!

- [EXHALES SHARPLY]
- He'll go straight to heaven.

Papa wasn't perfect.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

He made a lot of mistakes.

Dave, everyone makes mistakes.

[DAVE] That's true.

But what Papa did was terrible.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

He covered up for Drew.

Dave, stop.

Drew killed Mister Panyong.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Dave, I said stop it!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Cherry.

Papa had your father's corpse
thrown into the sea.

Then, he told me
not to say a word.

- What's this about?
- [BREATHING HEAVILY]

What are you saying?

Drew, I'm sorry.
But now that Papa's gone,

Cherry deserves
to know the truth.

Cherry,
that's the reason I left.

It was because of that!
Because of what Drew did!

[BREATH SHAKING] Dave.

That's not a very good joke.

Tell me you're just joking.

Cherry, I wish it were a joke.

[INHALES DEEPLY]
But it's not.

I've kept this from you
for a long time.

But it's the truth.

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Please be quiet, Dave.

Let's eat.

[DAVE] Cherry. Cherry.

- Believe me!
- [SEB] Dave, that's enough!

If what you're saying is true,

then why are you
only telling us now?

Tell us, Dave! Why only now?!

- Because I was scared!
- [PACO] Scared of what?!

[DAVE] That it might
tear our family apart!

- Okay?!
- You made things worse!

- [CHERRY SOBBING]
- Drew would end up in prison.

[SIGHS]

And our business
would be ruined.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I didn't want this.

- What?!
- I didn't want this to happen.

- You didn't want this?
- No!

You wouldn't do this…

- Paco!
- …if you didn't want to!

It's not my fault!

- Blame Papa!
- You did this!

- You junkie!
- Let me go!

- How could you?!
- It was Drew!

That's enough!

That's enough.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING] We're a family.

[INHALES SHARPLY]
I thought of you as my family.

And now you're telling me
you've been deceiving me?

That you've been lying to me?!

That you went behind my back?!

Dave…

This is all your fault.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

I did…

…what I thought was right
at the time.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[DAVE BREATHING HEAVILY]

Even though I loved you
so much, Cherry.

I told Papa that I loved you,

but he made me choose.

Now you're blaming
a dead person?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[DAVE] C-Cherry!

- Drew!
- [BECCA SCREAMS]

- Cherry! Cherry!
- Drew!

[DAVE] Cherry… Cherry…

[GRIM MUSIC PLAYING]

Che… Cherry…

Cherry…

Don't do it, Cherry. Don't.

[MOANS]

Cherry. Cherry…

- Dave.
- [INDISTINCT MUTTERING]

- Dave. Wake up, Dave.
- Cherry.

- Dave! Dave!
- Cherry, don't.

[PANICKED BREATHING]

You're having a nightmare.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

[PACO GASPS]

I'm sorry. [EXHALES DEEPLY]

Love.

Love, it's okay.

Love.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING]

[VOICE BREAKING]
I'm sorry, love.

I'm so sorry.

I understand, love.

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

It's okay to grieve.

You don't have to be
strong all the time.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, I'm sure your father
loves you so much.

- Congratulations.
- Thanks, Pa.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

It's okay, babe.

Just let it all out.

[SOBBING]

[MAN 1] Why the long face?

Want some?

[MAN 2] Do it, bro. Do it.

Tsk.

- Stop it.
- [LAUGHS]

- Cheers, bro.
- Cheers.

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

- Come here!
- Pa!

I'm not doing drugs, Pa!

- Pa, stop!
- Pa!

You think I'll believe that?!

- Pa!
- That's enough.

[FREDDIE] He was found
dead on our property.

This would be a huge scandal.

Not just for Drew,
but for our whole family!

- Pa!
- Especially for our business.

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

[FREDDIE] Now, Dave…

You'll keep quiet about this.

[DREW] No one can find out.

No one.

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

[GLASS CLATTERS]

Can you be honest with me?

About what?

About Dave and Cherry.

Were they romantically involved?

- Huh?
- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Why do you ask?

Dave had a dream last night.

He kept calling Cherry's name.

Maybe he was giving her orders
in his dream.

Don't think much of it.

You didn't answer my question.

Do you know if they were
romantically involved?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I don't know.

And if I were you, I wouldn't
dig into Dave's past.

That's not nice.

Thank you so much for coming

to Papa's wake.

I'm sure if he was
here right now,

he'd say, "Why are you
wasting time here?!

Go back to work!"

- [LAUGHTER]
- [SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

But no one can deny…

that Papa Freddie was such
a good boss.

Everything I know
about business,

I learned from him.

But he wasn't
just my boss.

He was also a very kind
father to me.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

When I lost my parents,

he didn't just give me a house.

He gave me a new family

who filled the places
of those I lost.

That's why I promise…

[SNIFFLES]

…to love this family
for as long as I live.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I'd kill for this family.

Because that's how much
Papa Freddie loved this family

and everyone in this ranch.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

To Papa Freddie.

To Don Freddie.

- To Don Freddie.
- To Don Freddie.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Are you sure you don't want
to move in with us?

There are many rooms
in the mansion.

You don't have to
live alone here.

Well, who said
I'll be alone here?

Auntie!

Are you bringing men here?

Cherry Red, I also have needs.

Just kidding!

[BOTH LAUGH]

I'm loyal to your father.

I'll let you know if
I get sick of this house.

By the way, what happened
to Freddie?

Why did he die so suddenly?

He suffered an aneurysm.

A blood vessel in
his brain ruptured.

Why?

Was he in a lot of stress?

From what I remember,
he was always smiling.

Oh dear.

Now that Freddie's gone, I bet
things will get complicated

between the Estrellas.

What makes you say that?

You're being such a pessimist.

[CHUCKLES] Well, there's
money involved.

Freddie left a huge fortune for
his sons to inherit, didn't he?

As for me…

I'll have nothing to
bequeath you when I die.

Don't talk like that, Auntie.

[CHUCKLES]

People like you…

- Hm?
- …don't die easily.

[LAUGHS]

You're right.

- You're definitely right.
- [CHUCKLES]

[LAUGHS]

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

[SEB] Babe! Where are you?

We're running late!

Yes, babe! I'll be right out!

There.

Do I look decent enough?

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

- [SEB SIGHS]
- [CHUCKLES]

We're just attending
the reading of Papa's last will,

not a wedding.

But that's the thing.

I want to look respectable.

We wouldn't want
the lawyer to think

that Papa Freddie's family
looks shabby.

Attorney would never
say such a thing.

Besides, the reading
of your dad's will also counts

as a special occasion.

[SIGHS]

- Whatever. Let's go.
- Okay.

Hon, are you sure
you want to come?

Our family lawyer
will just discuss legalities.

You know, boring stuff.

No, no, no. It's okay.

I have nothing better
to do here, anyway,

so I might as well join
the actual reading of the will.

Uh… Dave, I have a question.

What is it?

What did you…

dream about last night?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Why?

[INHALES DEEPLY]

You were sleep talking.

You mentioned a name.

Who was it?

Cherry.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

What about it?

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

Do you and Cherry have history?

Did you have something going on?

I mean, it's okay.

You can be honest with me.
I just want to know.

You see, I've noticed that
you seem quiet around her.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[INHALES DEEPLY,
EXHALES SHARPLY]

Look, my dad just died.

How do you expect me to act?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

What's wrong with you?

Tsk. It's nothing.
I'm just fixing my dress.

- You've been fussing all day.
- Do I look nice?

[EXHALES LOUDLY]

Dave.

Wow!

It seems like
you're ready to get rich.

Don't be silly!
It's not like that.

So, Drew…

Who do you think will receive
more inheritance between us?

Huh?

[SEB AND COLLEEN CHUCKLE]

Come on. Let's go inside.

The lawyer's waiting for us.

But Paco and Cherry
aren't here yet.

Oh, they're here.

There they are.

- Let's go?
- Okay.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Let's go inside.

Come on.

Gentlemen…

Ladies…

The Last Will and Testament
of Freddie Estrella.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

First, I want to say sorry
to my sons.

I know you were expecting
a lot from me.

Not only in terms of money,

but also as a businessman,

and as your father.

[INHALES DEEPLY]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I wanted our ranch to grow.

I wanted to diversify
into other businesses.

That way, I could
leave more for you

and for General Luna.

But I messed up.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

The 500 million-peso
investment…

that I put into
a shipping company…

It failed.

And now we're
buried in debt.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

That's why we practically
lost everything.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

Wait, attorney.
Please pause the video.

You didn't know about this?

Did Papa consult you
about this, attorney?

Paco, you're in charge here!

You should be on top
of everything!

How could you not be aware
of this failed investment?!

- How could you be so ignorant?!
- I'm sorry…

if Papa didn't tell me
about all of his investments.

But don't worry.

In his next life,

I'll look into every penny
he withdraws.

Would that be enough?

- So you were being ignorant.
- He didn't tell me anything!

Love…

Dave.

Paco, calm down.

[DAVE CLEARS THROAT]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[DAVE] Attorney,
please continue.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

I'm sorry I failed you
as a father.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

All we have left is the ranch.

And in the event that I die…

I want to entrust
the whole ranch…

to one person.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

And that's Dave.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

Love…

Love!

[DRAMATIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

- [BREATHING HEAVILY]
- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SCREAMS IN ANGER]

[SCREAMS]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

- Love?
- [GASPS]

Love, can you leave me be?

I want to be alone for now.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

I'm not surprised…

that Papa entrusted
the whole ranch to you.

It's because of what
happened, right?

No one knows
Papa's reasons.

[SCOFFS] Come on, Dave.

You know why he chose you.

He wanted to repay you
for helping me.

For covering up our secret.

"Our secret"?

[SCOFFS]

Okay, fine.

It's my secret.

Papa knew you well.

What do you mean?

He knew that when he's gone,

there'll be no reason for you
to stay mum.

You'll fess up.

He knew you didn't care
about the money or the ranch.

But if he made you the owner
of whatever we have left…

you might just learn to care
about the ranch

and our family.

Drew, I care about you.

I care about our family.

I would've fessed up long ago
if I didn't.

Papa has got you cornered.

He gave you no choice.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Well…

In the end…

All he wanted
was to keep us all safe.

Right?

Drew.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Now that Papa's gone,

it's going to be my call.

I'll decide whatever I want
to do with this damned secret.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Papa's gone,

so if I were you…

I'd be a good boy, okay?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

[COLLEEN SIGHS]

[SCOFFS]

[SEB EXHALES DEEPLY]

So, that's it?

You left without clarifying

what will happen
to the rest of you?

What do you want me to do?

At least ask Dave
if he'll give you a cut.

You saw how upset Paco was.

Someone had to be
the levelheaded one.

You're his son, too.
You're an Estrella!

Just let Dave have it, okay?

Even if Papa left
everything to him,

I'm sure he'll
take care of us.

We can count on him.

What if you're wrong?

[SCOFFS]

So, you'd rather we fought
over the inheritance?

[BECCA] Since your father left
the company to you,

does that mean you're
gonna stay here for good?

I don't know yet.

[BECCA SCOFFS]

What about your life
in the US?

Babe, I don't know.

Please.

[CAR DOOR SLAMS]

Where are you, love?

Cherry.

Is something wrong?

I'm waiting for Paco.
He's not answering my calls.

He isn't home yet?

[SIGHS]

Not yet.

I'll look for him.

Cherry.

Cherry, wait.

Dave?

Dave, where are you?

Oh, Drew.

Have you seen Dave?

Uh, I didn't see him
when I came in.

He isn't back there either,

so I guess I didn't see him.

Uh, Ma'am Becca, I saw
Sir Dave leaving earlier.

He left?

Where did he go?

I don't know, ma'am.

I just saw him following
Ma'am Cherry.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SEB] Pa!

That looks fancy!

Look, Drew!

- Mmm! It looks fancy!
- Wow.

Is this new?

Look!

I think it suits me better.

- You like it?
- Yeah!

You know, every good man
needs a watch like this.

A good watch.

[SEB] It looks expensive,
though.

[FREDDIE] That's why you need
to work hard.

So that one day,
you can afford one.

Not just one, but a whole
collection! [CHUCKLES]

Right. But this one,
I'm leaving to one of you.

Are you leaving it
to your favorite, Pa?

Geez! We all know
you're the favorite.

Of course not!

Well, this one…

I'll leave to whomever
deserves it most.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SEB] Hey, Paco.

- Mmm.
- You're covered in mud.

I helped one of our cows
give birth.

[CHUCKLES]

- That looks good.
- You want some?

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Your favorite…

…is not the one
who deserves it.

Pa!

Love?

Why are you looking
for Paco here?

This is his favorite tree.

I thought he'd be here.

Why would he be here?

We celebrated our first
monthly anniversary here,

so he would always
come here.

What's your plan?

- With what?
- The ranch.

Honestly, I don't know.

Cherry, I never expected this.

I know…

I don't deserve this ranch.

You deserve it, Dave.

[SIGHS]

Because he loved you too.
You were his son, too.

[SIGHS]

I know you'll take care
of your brothers.

You know,

you haven't changed.

You value family above all.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

Ma'am Cherry, Sir Dave,
good evening.

Good evening, Allan.

Sir Paco is in the stables.

I'm worried about him.
He's drunk.

Oh.

- I'll go check on him.
- Okay, ma'am.

Love.

Love.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You're really shameless.

- Love…
- Paco.

You're shameless.

[CHERRY] Love…

You are absolutely…

- …shameless!
- Paco!

That's enough!

Stop it!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You wrongly accused me of
not protecting Papa's money,

and now, you're taking
what's left of it?!

[PACO CLAPS]

- Love, that's enough!
- Congratulations!

Your being a suck-up
finally paid off!

I didn't suck up to Papa!

Yeah, right!

- I never did!
- Shut up!

I'm sure there's a perfectly
good reason why he did that!

And what's that?!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

The fact that you are
his favorite son?

[PACO] Huh?

You got what you wanted
so easily

even though it was Seb and I
that remained here

and put up with him!

Paco, you don't know
what you're saying!

Oh, really?

Paco, that's enough, please.

[PACO] Well then,
enlighten me, Dave.

Tell me what I don't know.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- Tell me…
- Love, stop it!

- …what I don't know!
- You're drunk!

Say it to my face, Dave!

Tell me!

What is it?!

Shake, shake…

- Your mojito, mademoiselle.
- Thank you.

Thank you.

[ROCK MUSIC PLAYING
IN BACKGROUND]

Have you heard?

Heard what?

The electric rates are
going up again tomorrow.

Really?

Our expenses are growing,

but we aren't gaining
more customers.

It's fine.

We can still manage.

Seb, even the prices of
chicken and pork

for our menu items
are going up.

Then we'll charge
more for them.

Or we can make our
servings smaller.

- Seb!
- What?

We are earning little.

Do you think that's okay?

Colleen, look at our
customers' faces.

They're all enjoying
themselves in our bar.

How can I not be
happy with that?

What?!

Is the reason not
clear to you?

In Papa's eyes,

you are his greatest son.

His most beloved…

…and most deserving son.

[CHUCKLES]
You liked that, huh?

[PACO CHUCKLES]

But remember this:

I won't let you take
everything I worked hard for.

I will contest Papa's will.

Love, let's just go home.

Take care of him.

Come on, love.

Let's go.

[CHERRY] Let's go.

You're shameless!

Love…

You shouldn't drink too much
if you can't hold your liquor.

I'm done, love.

I'll resign from Cuatro.

Love, why are you
going to resign?

Dave can have the business.

He's the new owner,

and I don't want to work
for that bas--

For him.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

But love, what will you do
after you resign?

I'll put up our own business.

Or we could get out of here.

Yeah, let's go
somewhere far away.

We could move to…

To Iloilo or Palawan.

Anywhere, as long as
it's far from here.

Let's do it, love.

Love.

What about your dreams
for Cuatro?

The canning factory?

All those jobs you plan
to give to the people?

You'd throw all that away
just because you're angry?

Love, you don't know
how much they hurt me.

It's not…

It's not right!

- This wouldn't have happened…
- Ow.

…if you had just talked to
your brothers about this.

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

And what am I supposed
to tell them?

I don't even know
what to do with it.

Love, I understand.

I do.

But please don't throw
your dreams away

just because of your anger
towards your brother

or your father.

Oh, love…

[BECCA] You have to be clear.

Do you want this or not?

Do you have a plan or not?

You can't just make everyone
wait around for you to decide.

Can you just

please cut me some slack?

I mean, just give me
a little time to…

To think of what to do
with the ranch.

This isn't easy.

Okay.

I understand.

But you have to be decisive,
and you have to decide fast.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Not everyone has the luxury
of time to wait for you.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING] Pa!

Help me!

Pa!

[CHERRY] He was asking me
for help.

[PACO] The truth is, he's
still in love with you!

But if he does something
to you, love…

I will kill him.

Don't you ever come near
my wife again, understand?

[DAVE]
I've decided to remove myself

from Rancho Cuatro Estrella.

The entire ranch
will be turned over…

Damn you!

There is nothing
we can do about it!

You're so weak, Seb!

…to Cherry Red Estrella.

[CHERRY] I will never accept
something that's not for me.

I don't want it!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[MUSIC ENDS]
