Destiny. Is it beyond our control? Or do we make our own? These questions and other musings about the past and the future set the tone as we sail into the year’s most anticipated film about love and life.
Six people are brought together on a seven-day cruise that will change their lives forever:
A hopeless romantic (Jolina Magdangal) searches for the right man for her, while dreaming of becoming a singer.
A successful businessman (Dennis Trillo) searches for the truth about a woman from his past.
A senior housekeeper (Eugene Domingo) finds out that it is never too late to find true love.
A young waiter (Mark Herras) finds the woman of his dreams, but she is beyond his reach.
A young brat (Rhian Ramos) finds out that love does not have to be as complicated as her love-hate relationship with her mother.
And a sexy lounge singer (Rufa Mae Quinto) searches for the perfect man who will keep his promises and who will never leave her.
This comedy-romance-drama-musical will make you swoon, cry, laugh, and fall in love all over again. While it takes you to three continents around the world (Asia, Africa, and Europe), it is nevertheless an intimate film about searching for love, following your dreams, and making your own destiny.
