I must say that this year's line ups were totally offered to all the moviegoers with a bang! Now, here's a quick teaser to excite us more for this gripping film!

A film by the blockbuster director Ruel S. Bayani, from the huge success of "No Other Woman" he then promised that this is not your typical "mistress" movie, instead this newest offering is said to be more of a modern day family drama. Direk Ruel  was also proud and brave enough to say that this was his best film so far and his first to join MMFF. Direk Ruel has all praises for the lead characters in giving their all and beyond just for the movie. Heart-touching and compelling, the trailer can speak for itself! Watch here:
A single mom, Grace (Angel Locsin) was in peaceful living with son Botchok (Miguel Vergara) and her supportive boyfriend Tristan (Zanjoe Marudo). Just when Grace was challenged, her son's rare blood condition is already alarming the health and life of the kid. To find cure to Botchok's severe illness, it will push Grace to reach out for help to Botchok's father, Edward (Dingdong Dantes).
Conflicts will emerge, Edward's marriage to a successful and powerful woman named Jacqueline (Angelica Panganiban) will be shaken by the discovery of Botchok's existence. Grace is needed to plead for help in curing her sick son's condition. As they seek medication, it was advised that Grace and Edward needs to have another child in order to sustain Botchok's life. In this rare and difficult situation where a precious life of an innocent child is at stake, are they all willing to give in? Will Grace and Edward overcome this ordeal for the sake of their own child, or will it bring unwanted feelings in between? How long can Jacq and Tristan hold on to their love of their respective partners? Is love really worth one more try?
Aside from of Angel, Angelica, Zanjoe and Dingdong, also featured in “One More Try” are Carmina Villaroel, Agot Isidro, Edward Mendez, and Ms. Gina PareƱo.
Zanjoe Marudo admits that it was a big challenge for him as an actor to play as Tristan, "dito makikita ng tao ‘yung pagiging seryoso ko bilang isang artista at sinubok talaga ako ng pelikulang ito kung hanggang saan ang kaya ko”. Angelica Panganiban was equally proud of the film and even said that she has never seen any film with such great concept. The uniqueness of the story line was heavy and striking. Angel Locsin also stated that she gave it her best to portray her role, "aaminin ko, nahirapan talaga ako..", she gives out the deepest emotions of a hurting mother. The movie promised to share a lesson that we can all learn from. Dingdong Dantes was a fresh addition to the film. Dingdong was a gentleman as proven by Angel and Angelica when asked on how was he as an on screen partner. The kid in the story Miguel was picked for the role through an audition and Direk said that the kid was chosen because "mukha talagang may sakit". Direk Ruel also claimed that both Angel and Angelica had a super showdown of acting prowess for the benefit of the film. For the makers of the movie, they were too proud to offer a beautiful story executed in the big screen for the up coming film festival.
