MANILA, Philippines – A married couple finds trouble in paradise when the husband, portrayed by Dingdong Dantes, is forced to make love with another woman to save a child's life in the first trailer for Star Cinema's "One More Try."
Released online Friday via the ABS-CBN film production outfit's YouTube page, the first trailer for the romance-drama film by director Ruel Bayani ("No Other Woman") offers a glimpse of an unusual circumstance that intertwines the lives of two couples.
In the film entry to the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival, Angel Locsin portrays Grace, a single mom who is forced to reconnect with her son's biological father Edward (Dantes) to save the boy from a worsening rare blood condition.
The source of the cure: a biological sibling to Grace's son, who must be naturally conceived.
In a situation where a child's life is at stake, Grace and Edward's respective relationships -- she has found love anew with Tristan (Zanjoe Marudo), he is married to Jacqueline (Angelica Panganiban) -- take a turn for the worse, as unwanted feelings from the past start to resurface.
Also starring Carmina Villaroel, Agot Isidro, Edward Mendez, and Gina Pareño, "One More Try" along with Star Cinema's "Sisterakas" hit theaters nationwide on Christmas Day.
