One More Try

Directed by Ruel S. Bayani; stars Angel Locsin, Angelica Panganiban, Dingdong Dantes, Zanjoe Marudo, Miguel Vergara, Carmina Villaroel, Agot Isidro, Edward Mendez and Gina Pareño

One of the drama entries this year, “One More Try” follows the four-sided love story of Grace Gabriel (Locsin), Tristan Agcaoili (Marudo), Edward Mendoza (Dantes)

and Jacqueline Mendoza (Panganiban). Grace is a single mother willing to sacrifice everything just to save his ailing son Botchok (Miguel Vergara), who is in dire need of a bone marrow transplant. In a cruel twist of fate, Grace and her boyfriend Tristan learn that the only method to get a matching donor is for Grace to have another child with her ex-boyfriend Edward (the boy’s father), who is now married to the successful career woman Jacqueline. The conflict sends the two relationships to the edge as Grace begs for Jacqueline’s permission “to borrow Edward for just one night.”
