“Hello Love, Goodbye,” Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richard’s box office record-breaking and first movie team-up is set to make hearts swoon once more as it makes its TV debut this December with its airing on ABS-CBN TVplus’ KBO.

Directed by the award-winning director Cathy Garcia Molina, it depicts the stories of the OFWs in Hong Kong and the love story of Joy (Kath), an OFW aspiring to migrate to Canada, and Ethan (Alden), a bartender awaiting his residency status.

As their lives intertwine, viewers will see how this film is more than just a love story. Here are some of the lessons Kapamilyas can pick-up from the film:

FILIPINOS TEND TO PUT THEIR FAMILY FIRST BEFORE THEIR SELVES

In the movie, Joy decides to take risks by taking on multiple jobs as she tries to balance sending helping her family and saving up for what she considers a better future in to Canada. For her, selflessness must take over when her family’s future is at stake.

OFWS STRUGGLE IN THEIR EVERYDAY LIVES WORKING ABROAD

The film showed how working abroad is not always rainbows and butterflies as many would think. Like a lot of OFWs, Joy tried to make ends meet as she juggled doing household chores, caring for the young and the elderly, illegally selling online products, waiting tables and washing dishes in a bar. Our OFWs need our utmost understanding and concern because leaving their families to help them entails a lot of sacrifice.

YOU CAN FORGIVE YOURSELF FROM THE BAD THINGS/DECISIONS YOU’VE MADE

Ethan is trying to fix his life after giving up his residency in Hong Kong to be with his ex-girlfriend and neglecting his familial duties. However, as he tries hard to regain his family, especially his brother’s trust, he also still blames himself for his wrong decisions. But with the help of Joy, he then forgives himself.

REACHING OUT CAN HELP FRIENDS WITH PROBLEMS

“Need a friend today,” was Ethan’s persistent messages to Joy when he was bugging her to be his friend. Sometimes a text message will suffice to comfort a friend who is coping up with a problem.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WILL COME TO YOUR LIFE TO CHANGE YOU

Not everyone who you meet will be permanent in your lives. Sometimes they are only instruments to make you better. They may not stay in your lives but the memories and lessons you learn from them can help you throughout your life.
