Intense and no-holds-barred performance from Ms. Pilar Pilapil! Known for her witty and smart personality, Ms. Pilapil is also regarded as a local film icon, having been in the local film industry for a few decades now. This dramatic actress is a favorite, too, among local telenovelas.  This film tells the story of a Filipina OFW in London who's looking forward to retirement but may have a change of plan due to some health problems along the way.  Viewers get a glimpse of the character's life in a foreign land, her interests and the persons she befriended along the way.  While the film lacked a definite conclusion in terms of plot it made up greatly in terms of acting portrayals especially by the lead star Ms. Pilapil.  She is an on-screen force that's hard to resist. Worth checking out!
