Storyline

With barely anything to live for, Emman Toledo (Aga Muhlach), a former dancer, is just about to start his life all over again. He holds the good memories of his past dearly, knowing he will never be able to bring back his better days. An unlikely opportunity comes up when he is assigned to be the dance instructor for the upcoming Governor's Ball of the powerful political family of the Evelinos, a chance for him to rekindle his lost passion. It will be at this ball where the engagement of the governor's son Dylan Evelino (Jake Cuenca), and Cedes Fernandez (Angel Locsin) will be announced. Despite her hatred for the dirty politics, Cedes has no choice but to succumb to the decision of Dylan out of her indebtedness towards the family. Emman is drawn towards Cedes from the first time she catches his eye. As their lives intertwine through dance, Emman and Cedes find themselves resisting an affair: one that holds the truths to their painful pasts, and the memories of a boundless love. ...

This is a rare gem of Philippine cinema
22 July 2019 | by marcus_mallorcaSee all my reviews

With Filipino movies in the 2000's focusing on the love team of young celebrities, with no substance and predictable story, this one differs andf its a must watch. (spoiler warning)

At first you will think Angel Locsin was a not-so good who left her bf-rot in jail-gf, but there is a twist in the story, From start to beginning, its really enjoyable, no boring moments. Aga's acting was superb and also Angel.
