Follows the ongoing flirtation between Jacko and Cassie, two Negrense chefs who grew up in Bacolod, and whose lives revolve around food (correction - mine). Trouble starts when Jacko loses his Italian restaurant, Puccini's to a giant cockfighting debt. The moneylender Dolpo takes control of Puccini's and hires Cassie as a consultant for a total restaurant makeover. Cassie re-visions Puccini's into a place that serves traditional Negrosanon food, and we are treated to the full panorama of Negrosanon cuisine and the idiosyncrasies of Negrosanon eating. Along the way, Jacko and Cassie find time to finally fall in love and set aside their differences.

For Full Story
This is a Negrense film entry to the Cinemalaya Film Festival. Almost all the Hiligaynon-speaking actors that I know are here. IL PRIDE BABY! Man, watching it made me hungry.
(In writing reviews, take note of the large number of people dismissing Hiligaynon as a dialect. We have a long way to go - our struggle is real.)
