When I was young,

I thought I knew everything.

I always thought I knew what love was.

But when I grew older...

I realized I knew nothing at all.

I thought love was the most

powerful thing in the world.

I was wrong.

If there's such a force

greater than love...

it is time.


It's such a b*tch.

Lucky are those who find

true love at the right time.



Wait. Do you really love me?

Okay, okay.

Okay? Okay..

And I'm very fortunate

to have witnessed this...

through two of my dearest friends,

Kirby and Grace.

Hey, guys!

Jigs, Stephen, Mickey, this is it!

Sexy time!

Kirby and Grace, we all know you've

been waiting a long time for this day.

Grace, ever since college...

Kirby has been waiting for a miracle,

for you to say yes to him.

- That's true!

- 'Cause he couldn't get passed me!

Thankfully, he was able to wait.


Hurry UP!



How dare you!

Let's raise our glasses

to Kirby and Grace!

And in love...


Your son!


Kenneth, Fm talking to you.

What were you thinking?

I was bored. No big deal.

No big deal?

You ruined your Aunt Grace' wedding.

What do I have to do for you to shape up?

You don't study.

You don't go to school.

What do you want?

Why not try getting out of my life?

Kenneth, it's been eight years

since your mom died.

For eight years you've

been nothing but trouble.

Is this how it's going to be?

What is the problem?

See, that's the thing Dad.

You know nothing because

you're never around.

I'm too busy to play

your guessing game, so just tell me.

You want the truth?

I don't want to be with you.

I'd rather be with mom but

unfortunately, I'm stuck with you.

Where did I go wrong, son?

Who is Athena?

Your mom?

The other Athena.

Is mom really the only woman you love?

Kenneth, you have no idea

how much I love you and your mom.

You're right.

I have no idea.

Because we never felt it.

You never showed us.

How I wish you're the one

who died instead.

I hope you don't mean that.



Hey, Jet!

Be careful! My dad's gonna kill me.

Shut up.

Kenneth! You got home late again.

Your dad will be pissed.

Nah. He left for Hong Kong.

You're lucky then!


Your Aunt Kendi called!

Your dad is in Legazpi.

Shouldn't he be in Hong Kong? Why?!

Kenneth! Kenneth! Wake...

Sir Jigs!

Yes, I'm trying to wake him up.

He came home late last night.

They seem to be siblings.

But they found out just now.

Who's the legal child?


He married my mother,

Athena Abigail delos Reyes.

Thus, my name...

- Kenneth delos Reyes.

- Okay.

I can give you my birth certificate,

the marriage certificate...

I have their picture.


You look like the guy in the picture.

He's my father.

See. I told you...

- I knew Kenii delos Reyes.

- Wait, wait, wait.

You look like the woman.

Is she your mother?



Oh. Okay. This is what we're going to do.

Give me your contact number

and as soon as I have news..

What about me?

One contact person per family, okay?

Here's your picture.

Jerome, come on.

Thank you, sir.

- We will call you, son.

- Uh, sir?

What if it's a matter of life and death?

Young lady, I already told you.

One contact person per family. Okay?

Just coordinate with him, okay?

Who are you?

Why are you looking for my dad?

Are you my sister?

And who is that woman in the picture?

Promise me first that you'll keep me

in the loop once the airline contacts you.


Then, no.

I won't tell what I know either.


Miss me already?

What a stare!

Very seducing!

I might fall for you.

Good thing you can pursue me.

'Cause I'm not really your sister.

Who's the woman in the picture?

Oh, so you're curious.

Oops, it spilled.

Can you stop wasting my time?

Who is the woman in the picture?

Oh! My God!

What the hell is this fife?!

I looked like a fool"-


You actually followed me here in..

- Sorry.

- Ouch.

In Manila.



- Hey!

- Hey...

- stop it

- Are they blind?!

Athena, don't...

Out of my way!!!




Let's get out of here!

Gangster? My dad was a gangster?

You're overreacting.

He doesn't look like a gangster

in this picture though...

because he was already in love.

Handsome gangster, huh?

Like you.


You're just like your dad.

Did you know Kenii delos Reyes...

was the most notorious

gangster on campus back then?

And Athena Dizon was the only girl

who was able to set him straight.

'Cause she is his great love.

Great love.

Who told you that?

My aunt.

And who's your aunt?

Athena Dizon. Your dad's great love.

Great love.

You're so mean!


Mr. Kenneth delos Reyes.

This is Arnold San Jose

from Fly Philippines.

We would like to inform you

about the latest news.

The plane had an

emergency landing in CamSur.

Emergency landing?

Uhm, it's still under investigation.

We still have no updates

regarding possible survivors.

But I suggest that you wait here

in our office for further updates.

Thank you. Thank you.

Hey, hey. That was the airline, right?

Move over.

I'm coming with you. I need to see

your dad. He has to see my aunt.


She has a heart condition.

She's dying.

And she's getting weaker everyday.

She came back to the Philippines

a few days ago.

She wants to die here.

And my mission is to give them

a happy ending before she dies.

Again, seriously?!

Are you crazy?

Do you want my mother to haunt me...

because I helped my dad get back

together with his woman?

But she's not his other woman.

She's his great love.

She is not my dad's great love.

Bro, all flights are fully booked.

Jet, let's go.

Bro, my dad agrees with Nana Buding.

Yes, yes. Listen to me, Kenneth,

and just stay here...

- and wait for more news...

- Kenneth!

- About the plane.

- Bro!

So stubborn.

It's sold out. Look.

I'll take standing room.

Standing room, sir.

You're not listening!

You know that it's Holy Week.
