Written by Jason Rogers and Danny Aguilar, "Take Me To Banaue" follows Hank, a gawky American engineer in his pursuit to meet the perfect girlfriend who he hopes will become his wife.
After discovering the real truth about the stunning woman he fell for, Hank has to spend the days and hours grappling with a deal from a businesswoman and listening to his friend's advice - all as he tries to make it to Banaue... for the woman he loves.
This romantic comedy will surely be a wild ride as we follow HANK (Brandon Melo) in his pursuit to meet the perfect girlfriend who he hopes will soon become his wife. This does not, however, prove very easy when he meets GRACE (Maureen Wroblewitz).
He thinks they are in love, but quickly finds out that Grace is staying with him so that she could get financial help. This misunderstanding leads to some melee in Hank's hotel room, and when JINKY (Thea Tolentino) comes to assess the damage to her hotel, she notices some details about Hank that works with her life plan.
This sets in motion a business negotiation that is halted by Hank's recent health concerns and his love for Grace. But it is Hank's friend Jordan who manages to bring an end to a long-held colonial idea that Jinky holds dear.
When the name of the game is "justification," we are definitely in for a ride.
