“Aanhin mo pa ang gwapo kung mas malandi pa sa iyo.”

Nessun Dorma

Tired of chasing Ken (Evan Tan), Paul (Nicolo Magno) meets him one last time before leaving on a journey to Europe in search for a better place to dream and love.

The film explores the love and relationship struggles of Asian gay men caused by social constraints. It describes their aspirations for Europe, where there is a culture of acceptance and open-mindedness, as well as support from governments in the form of legal same-sex partnerships.

Nessun Dorma is a famous aria from Puccini’s opera “Turandot” that depicts an unknown prince’s unrequited love to a beautiful but cold princess. In the film, the aria is used to mirror Paul\’s wailing for a love that cannot be fulfilled.

This short film is submitted by Ronald Genato.
