When Tala beckons Eddie to come to her in the river, she calls him with her palm facing up. In Asian cultures, including Filipino culture, it is incorrect to call someone over with the palm facing up. A Filipino girl would only call another person over with the palm facing down, reserving the 'palm up' gesture for animals. See more »

This is a story about a man named Eddie. And it begins at the end, with Eddie dying in the sun. You might think it's strange to start a story with an ending, but all endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time.

It's a great movie that really kept me glued to the show until the very end. It's really interesting and makes me think about who the 5 people i would meet in heaven in the future. It also makes me realize that whatever we do, it will affect someone, somewhere. This movie makes you want to reflect on whatever you have done in the past and makes you want to improve on whatever you can do now and in the future so that it would make the world a better place for you and your love ones.I would recommend this movie for those who feel really lost in life or is now too caught up in their busy lives to seat down and watch it and you'll find that it's inspirational and life changing.
