Despite being stuck for weeks in a public hospital with his ailing father, Edward is surprisingly lighthearted. A rambunctious teenager, Edward spends the majority of his days running around the hospital with his friend, wreaking havoc on the other patients and nurses, and taking tasteless bets on which patients will live or die. But Edward soon finds a new way to pass his time when he meets Jane Doe, an accident victim recovering in the hospital, who completely wins his heart. Edward’s connection with Agnes (formerly Jane Doe), changes him for the better. Having had neglected his bedridden father for the majority of their stay in the hospital, Edward finally takes the responsibility of caring for his dad, whose health has continued to decline. A fresh coming-of-age film that balances comedy and tragedy, EDWARD is a complex story about facing life’s challenges and growing in the process. (In Tagalog with subtitles) — G.S.
