An intense romantic affair comes viewers’ way as ABS-CBN Film Restoration presents the restored version of Star Cinema’s 2007 film “A Love Story,” starring Aga Mulach, Angelica Panganiban, and Maricel Soriano, on the ongoing Sagip Pelikula Festival on KTX starting August 17 (Tuesday) at 7:30 PM.   

Aga portrays the character of Ian, a real estate mogul who clawed his way to the top to surpass his father’s success. Still yearning for his father’s approval, he meets the two women who would turn his life around—Joanna (Maricel) and Karyn (Angelica).

As the three become intertwined in this complicated love affair, Ian, Joanna, and Karyn must learn to let go, forgive, and realize the true meaning of unconditional love in the end.

Delos Reyes, the film also starred Dante Rivero, Chin Chin Gutierrez, Bobby Andrews, TJ Trinidad, Baron Geisler, John Arcilla, Gerald Madrid, Marc Acueza, RS Francisco, Carla Humphries, Anita Linda, Mark Gil, among others.
