Hanggang Dito Na Lamang At Maraming Salamat (2007)
Adapted from Orlando Nadres award-wining one-act play about homosexuality, Hanggang Dito Na Lamang At Maraming Salamat is the story of a closet gay and repressed pawnshop owner, "Uncle" Fidel, who has been supporting and sending Efren to school. Although they are not even blood-related, Fidel treats him more than a real son... because he is secretly in love with him.
Nobody in town knows about Fidel's secret except for his best friend, the flamboyant Julie, the town's beautician, who is more open with his sexuality. He advises Fidel to come to terms with his true nature. Julie believes that Fidel should be able to get something in return from Efren by way of affection for all the things he has done for him and the money he spends for his schooling.
However, things turn for the worse when Efren drops a bomb: He has decided to marry his school sweetheart. The announcement devastates Fidel and strains his frienship with Julie.
After the dust has settled, there is clearly no winner, only two souls left empty and hurting.
