The undisputed prince and ultimate matinee idol of indie films Coco Martin has another independent film coming out this February, 2008.
Entitled Daybreak, Coco Martin plays another gay role and this time, he is partnered to Paolo Rivero, the actor in the controversial movie Live Show.
Daybreak is one interesting movie because it features two men in just one night. The events presented in the movie happened only in just a single day.
"DAYBREAK" happens entirely in one place: a rest house in Taal, Batangas and only with two characters. In a single narrative time, intending by way of voyeurism, we discover what happens to two men spending one night contemplating whether to break up or continue their relationship. William and JP allow us to know their biggest lies and the biggest truths... two people loving each other, clinging to each other, betraying each other -- trying the fragility of their feelings in only one night.
Memories and dreams, truths and lies, fears and desires, betrayal and honesty, love and hate are all closely entwined in this night.
Behind the veil of words, they are drawn to each other but will the light of the sunrise bring this intimacy to an end?
