December Avenue's Huling Sandali is feels trip
The independent 2015 film Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa was a success around the time of its release. It was a breather from the formulaic mainstream romance films, which usually consists of a predictable conflict and fairytale happy ending. Director Nestor Abrogena presented a raw relationship of two complex characters in the film that contributed to its success.
The audience was captivated with the emotional struggle of Sam (Nicco Manalo) and Isa (Emmanuelle Vera); their unique relationship paved the way for a sequel—fans of the story need closer and need not wait any longer because Tayo sa Huling Buwan ng Taon opens on May 8.
Tayo sa Huling Buwan ng Taon follows Sam and Isa’s struggle to find themselves while balancing their current respective relationships. With the backdrop of the busy city, the two characters paint a relatable struggle between career and romantic relationships. Will they be able to help each other in this struggle without referencing their past?
The first film’s success was supported by the amazing soundtrack produced by OPM’s best talents. Quest’s "Walang Hanggan" illustrated the story’s heartbreaking points. As fans anticipate the sequel, Tayo sa Huling Buwan ng Taon released the Original Soundtrack featuring rising star Elle Sebastian, Gabby Alipe of Urbandub, and December Avenue. The launch was also supported by performances from Shirebound & Busking, Munimuni, and Quest.

The sequel is appropriately represented by OPM band December Avenue, known for its heartbreaking tracks “Kung 'Di Rin Lang Ikaw” and “Sa Dulo Ng Walang Hanggan.” Their take on the story “Huling Sandali” is the movie’s official soundtrack.
"Huling Sandali" is a perfect accompaniment of Sam and Isa’s story in the sequel. An almost six-minute song lays out the regrets, the what ifs, and hope for second chances. If you'd ask us, it’s the perfect The-One-Who-Got-Away aka TOTGA theme song.
Along with Elle Sebastian's “Panahon” and Gabby Alipe’s “The Fight is Over,” the songs bring the movie into a whole lot relatable-level because of its lyrics that speak to the heart, songs that tell a story and sets a mood only a heartfelt-music could do.
Watch out for the much-awaited sequel to the Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa, the Tayo Sa Huling Buwan Ng Taon this May 8 in theaters nationwide!
