The story revolves around Kathryn Bernando‘s Joy Fabregas and Alden RichardsEthan del Rosario. Both are overseas Filipino workers who happen to cross paths one night in the bustling Hong Kong.

More than a love story, this movie is about the modern day bayani. In its entirety, the movie is a subtle social commentary about the enduring lives of OFWs in Hong Kong.

Aside from the splendid acting and engaging story, the timeliness of the movie’s release made it even more compelling. Shown amidst the Hong Kong riots of 2019, Hello Love Goodbye certainly makes a striking reflection of how the state of things were for our kababayans. It couldn’t have shown their daily lives any better.


Having filled your stomachs with food from your Noche buena, why not fill your hearts with some feels on Christmas Day too? Ready your boxes of tissue, this one pretty much hits home.
