ToFarm Film Festival 2016 Best Actor Bembol Roco returns in a new entry this year titled What Home Feels Like. And it looks like he’s going to go home with another Best Actor award for his portrayal of an OFW father who is forced to stay with his family after his company terminated his employment.
Watch the trailer of What Home Feels Like here:
The film speaks of the love of a father and the challenges of having to leave his family for very a long time to work abroad to earn more for his loved ones. But having to provide a better life sacrifices the time he could have shared with his wife and kids, to follow how they grow, to be able to get close with them and to love them and feel the love they could show in return.
The film is the directorial debut of Joseph Abello which he also wrote. It also stars Irma Adlawan (Oro), Biboy Ramirez (Oro), Rex Lantano, Aaron Rivera (Best Partee Ever), Elijah Filamor, and introducing Bianca Libinting
“What Home Feels Like” tells the home life of father and seaman, Antonio, who is forced to spend most of time at home upon learning that he can never aboard a ship again. Facing struggles as he doesn’t know what to do next, he follows the footsteps of his parents and buys a farm using their family savings.
Dealing with his forced retirement gives him several realizations. Spending his last 33 years as a seaman caused him to not know his family on a personal level. What’s even worse is now that he has the chance to catch up, his kids are leaving and his wife is used to living without him.
Catch “What Home Feels Like” on July 12-18 in SM Megamall, SM Manila, Greenbelt 1, Robinsons Galleria, and Gateway Cinemas. An official entry to the ToFarm Film Festival 2017.
