In One More Try, Angel Locsin, Angelica Panganiban, Zanjoe Marudo, and Dingdong Dantes will bring life to a story featuring a controversial proposition. Directed by Ruel S. Bayani, Star Cinema’s dramatic offering will be part of the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).
According to a release provided by Star Cinema, One More Try depicts a loving single mother Grace (Angel) who is willing to sacrifice everything to save her son from a life-threatening disease.
All seems well in Grace’s life, especially with the comfort of her son Botchok (Miguel Vergara) and boyfriend Tristan (Zanjoe) who is supporting her. But when Botchok’s rare blood condition becomes more severe, Grace is left with no other choice but to reconnect with Edward (Dingdong), Botchok’s biological father, an accomplished man married to a more successful and powerful woman Jacqueline (Angelica).
All Grace asks from Edward is for him to help her save Botchok, their son. Edward is hesitant at first but Jacq gives him permission. However, the tedious process of curing Botchok starts to taint their happy relationships, for unwanted feelings in the past start to creep in. Eventually all other options fail except only for one—Edward and Grace need to have another child to permanently cure Botchok and they need to do it the natural way.
In a situation where a life of an innocent child is at stake, can Grace, Edward, Tristan and Jacqueline sacrifice their personal feelings in order to cure Botchok? In this kind of pursuit, who will eventually win: Jacqueline who will go for a kill to save her faltering marriage with Edward or Grace, the devoted mother who will do anything to save her son even if it means compromising her relationship with the man who truly loves her?
Other cast members of One More Try include Carmina Villarroel, Agot Isidro, Edward Mendez, and Ms. Gina Pareño.
