Island Dreams Official Trailer - Metro Manila Film Festival 2013 New Wave Feature Official Entry

Synopsis of the Film

The longest journey you will make in your life is from your head to your heart. - Sioux Legend

An underprivileged Filipina dreams of becoming a singer meets an American vacationer heading to the island looking for a one night stand, both ultimately finding something else.

Julie needs some money... fast. A big singing reality show auditions is going to happen at the town's capital and she needs to go. Her ticket to instant money is by selling her services as a tourist guide to some visitors of the resort island where she lives with her poor, blind mother.

She gets her chance when she meets Zach, a visitor of the island from America in search of True Love's Peak. It is a secluded place in the island surrounded by a myth-­- that anybody who sets foot on the grounds of True Love's Peak is soon bound to find true love if anyone cares enough to believe.

Julie knows the real story of the myth but she doesn't believe. She rather follow her dreams to be somebody one day at any cost. Zach is bearing the pains of losing a loved one, someone he made a promise to believe. But he's in the island to forget all that, to maybe just get wild and get lucky.

As the two embark on the journey, they both find themselves gravitating towards the promise of that true love. But will they be brave enough to realize that the myth and the place and their own pains actually make them vulnerable to something beyond their control? And whether it is true love or not, they will both have to journey from the head to the heart.

Starring: Louise delos Reyes, Alexis Petiprez (French actor), Chanel Latorre, and Irma Adlawan.

Co-Written and Directed By:Aloy Adlawan and Gino M. Santos
