According to Derek, the movie is about two people who love each other dearly but had to let go for many reasons.

“You have to continue loving. You make mistakes. You’ll learn to love somebody more so than the one that got away and that's where I am in my life now," he said.

When asked if the girl he's currently dating is "the one," Derek said, "I hope so. Yun na lang yung blessing na gusto ko na mangyari sa buhay ko. I've been so blessed. 2015, sabi ko nga, I feel is going to be very good year for me," he said.

(That's the only blessing I want to happen for me my life. I've been so blessed. 2015, as I said, I feel is going to be a very good year for me.)

"I think is going to be a great year for me....iyon na lang ang kulang (that's all that's missing), I’ll find the right person in my life.

Derek continued: "Huwag natin i-jinx. (Let's not jinx it). I ‘m very very happy and sana from all the stories I had in the past na did not have happy endings, sana ito naman may happy ending."  – Rappler.com
