My Lockdown Romance


Tom (Jameson Blake) is a closeted gay man who lives alone in his Manila condo during the Enhanced Community Quarantine. Tom lives in fear and insecurity, choosing to cocoon himself from the world. To help him cope, he makes himself busy with his work as a freelance accountant and talking with his best friend, Gad (Gab Pangilinan), via video calls. Unexpectedly, Tom’s long-lost college buddy from Hawaii, Kendrick (Joao Constancia), reconnects with him. Kendrick is the exact opposite of Tom, living life freely and to the fullest. Unknown to Kendrick, Tom is still secretly in love with him and hopes that their reconnection can blossom into something wonderful, albeit he cannot confess his true feelings. That is, until Kendrick admits the reason for his homecoming—a girl has broken his heart. After deciding to stay away from his friend, Tom learns that Kendrick has fallen ill with coronavirus, with no one to take care of him. Now, the cowardly Tom risks his life to visit and help Kendrick heal. With this, Tom tries to muster enough courage to finally admit to Kendrick how he feels, before it becomes too late.
