For Hawk, the quiet, thoughtful professional on his last tour it is a time of decision and he finds himself in conflict with the prickly Lisa. Lisa herself is facing the abandonment of her mother, Anna by her American stepfather, Ed Johnson. Emma's innocent sister, Maria arrives unexpectedly planning ...

How not to make a Movie
12 May 2003 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Conceived by amateurs executed by ABS CBN known for screwing up, good foreign actors given appalling lines by hack script writers, teamed up with the worst of Filipino talent not the best goes to make a bad movie. This movie together others produced by Mike Sellars have done massive damage to the Philippine film industry, already in turmoil and decline.
