Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa

Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa

Directed by Nestor Abrogena

As clouds begin to roll, we see the morning life of a busy city. Cars jam the streets, as people makes squares of the side streets they walk on. People queues in line as everyone wants to board the city train.
This is SAM’s daily picture of his long travel to school. He is a young filmmaker, who in his everyday commune, picks up his girlfriend ISA, in a station, 4 stops away from the school they go in.
The gloomy weather seems to be painting the day for the young couple. The concurring problems between them loom as they try to survive the day. ISA is about to leave for the States after graduation and SAM gets a fellowship offer from one of the leading film schools in the world.
All these reasons make way for unspoken words of doubt and fear, on top of a bigger dilemma that they have to face.
SAM and ISA had to make a decision. They cannot stay too long in this teacher-student relationship.
