There are many reactions I’ve been read but mine was I kind of relate to this film by being a older sibling you have a responsibility to take care of your younger sibling. I’ve been relate on it how I wish that I’ll be doing what the “Kuya” do to his younger bro the sense of responsibility is their not just by that but the love of being a family despite how spoiled your younger sibling you still have care and support to what his been doing like other parents who cares their child the guidance and the toughest sacrifices I learned it by watching this and it was a rare thing to find this kind of relationship to your siblings.

Because believe it or not typical sibling use to fought for each other. Envy, favoritism and jealousy was the causes of arguments between siblings and this film made me realize there’s a part that it can be possible to not have this kinds of arguments but have a care, love, responsibility and equality to each other though one has to sacrifice but that sacrifice will be worth it seeing your sibling paved the way that you’ve been work for him or her and pays off by giving you a meaningful thing or you could say a thanks for everything that he’s or she’s been paying off and I will do the same thing for you. In conclusion it was a very nice one short film and to the point we should always be grateful for everything most especially to those who sacrifice for our lives and welfare.

when you are with friends there are times they are in good terms and there are times they’ve been in bad times and starts argue to each other but end up make each other calm down.

Time goes by when their journey on one road brings them closer and closer together having fun and moments they spend together Lard gets married and his friends stand as his family which was a good thing happened and the bad one when Ann gets travel to dubai to see her family Isaac thinks it’s hard to get old alone but time goes by his friends gets one by one leaves having their own paths but Isaac still be positive and thought Even they are far away from each other he give a big thanks to the road to the journey and memories all the happiness that they’ve been spending. He know’s how hard to live by yourself but when you know no matter how far his friends was there’s nothing will be changed.

This Film was superb. It tells the journey of every barkada that even though there is huge possibility that we will part ways with each other, the memories would still last. No one can stop time and the fact that my friends and I will separate ways after we graduate makes me sad. Nevertheless, I would never forget because they had been a big part of my life and journey as well. This film made me realize how I miss my friends since we’ve not been get in touch much when this pandemic happened it makes me sad because all of our plans has been postponed and this film reminds me how misses my friends to go out and hang out with them how I wish when this pandemic gets over I will start seeing them of often and hang out again so I will recommend this movie to those who misses their friends in times of this pandemic.
