Penned by WANGGO GALLAGA
Hired by the DOH (Department of Health) to do a documentary for their HIV/AIDS awareness program, Gil Bustamante (Jake Cuenca) is a young filmmaker. Using San Lazaro Hospital as a backdrop, he weaves a tale that combines various stories of people infected with the virus. Among those having their story told are heterosexuals, homosexuals, prostitutes, and intravenous drug users. His documentary focuses on three major characters:
Heidi (Ma. Isabel Lopez), an ordinary housewife who contracted the virus from her philandering OFW husband. He died of AIDS three years ago, leaving her alone to care for their 9 year old son, Victor (JP Mesde) also an HIV patient. Ivy (Iza Calzado), a young call center agent who discovers she is HIV positive when she tries to apply for work abroad. Her plans for a new life abroad destroyed, she must now face the world – her work, family, and friends – with a mistake from her past. Vanessa (IC Mendoza), a cheerful young gay and stand-up comedian who engages in different sexual pleasures with multiple partners. He, with his very supportive parents, are willing and eager to shares his story. For his own reasons, Gil is obsessed with finishing the documentary, even if some of his key subjects have either died or backed-out of the project. He learns that the fight against HIV/AIDS is not solely the responsibility of the government – it is a fight that demands responsible action from every individual. In the end, he is triumphant in finishing the documentary as well as being able to face his own greatest fear…
