"Ang daming love stories na hindi pinapakita ng mga nangyari after nilang magsabi ng ‘Mahal kita.’ Babagsak ang ulan, tapos end credits na. After that, ano ‘yung nangyayari? May forever ba talaga? Nandoon pa rin ba 'yong fire ng pag-ibig? Nandoon pa rin ba 'yung lambing?"

These are the questions that challenged filmmaker Mihk Vergara to delve into the part of a love story that’s not often explored, and the result is the short film “Sayaw.”

“Sayaw” is about George and his wife, who are struggling to bring back the gleeful days of their married life. Where they used to be so in love, they are at a point where the love has gone cold.

Despite this, George never stopped trying to reach out to his wife and letting her feel his love, reminding her of how much they used to have so much fun on the dancefloor with their moves perfectly coordinated, and how happy they used to be.

Then things took a shocking turn: George has a stroke and is left debilitated.


Just as Mihk pointed out, indeed, many movies end after the couple exchanges vows, promising to love each other for eternity. “Sayaw” gives us a peek into what comes after that. It emphasizes that not all love stories are fairy tale-perfect, but that doesn't mean they can't have a happy ending.

This message certainly made an impact on heartthrob Piolo Pascual, who watched the film with his friends. The 40-year-old actor mused that life truly has plenty of surprises, and this is why one should try to stay fit and be financially secure for the people he loves.

Piolo said he learned how to save as early as his elementary days. Now that he’s older and has a stable income, he sets aside portions of his earnings for his policies with Sun Life Financial.

One of these policies is Sun Fit and Well, which perfectly matches his active lifestyle since it offers prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and recovery benefits. “Everything is covered,” he quipped.
