A film not meant for someone who wants to mend a broken heart. A film not meant for people with no patience at all. It's a film for those who love a twisted plot that makes their mind speak and have a makeup story of their own.

Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa or The Story of Us That Never Was, is a film that makes our own minds speak. If you are into slow cinema, a genre in which it emphasizes long takes, little to no narrative (dead air), then this is for you. When we say "it makes your own mind speak", it being a slow cinema having little narrative, this is where the part where you want to say the "what ifs".

Even though having little narratives, the great cinematography and soundtrack really struck us the most. As we do not want to spoil you guys, go and watch the movie instead! It's worth it! To prove that, here's our mandatory ticket picture! You may also watch the Trailer and OST below.

Plot Outline
As clouds begin to roll, we see the afternoon life of a busy city. Cars jam the streets, as people make 
squares of the side streets they walk on. People queue in line as they try to board the city train. 
This is SAM’s picture of his daily route to the university. He is a young filmmaker, who in his daily 
commute, picks up his girlfriend ISA from the train station before heading to school together. 

The gloomy weather seems to be painting the day for the young couple. Problems between them 
hover as they both try to delay the inevitable -- ISA is about to leave for the States after graduation, 
while SAM has a fellowship offer from one of the leading film schools in the world. 
The air between them is rife with doubts, fear and their unspoken dilemma looms on the horizon. 

Should SAM and ISA stay, or should they just let go?
