“Labyu with an Accent” starring Coco Martin and Jodi Sta. Maria revolves around Gabo (Martin) and Trisha (Sta. Maria) whose backgrounds are entirely different from one another. 

Trisha spent some 20 years living and working in the US while Gabo works different jobs to make ends meet in the Philippines. The two characters will cross paths when Trish returns to the country.

“Partners in Crime” directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina with starring comedy superstar Vice Ganda and YouTube sensation Ivana Alawi, follows the story of Jack (Ganda) and Barbara (Alawi), former "partners" who meet each other again before figuring in a crime.
