Waitress (Atlantis Theatrical)

♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

Small-town waitress and pie baker Jenna (Joanna Ampil) finds out that she is pregnant. What should be a cause for celebration brings about an epiphany that she is not that happy with her life so far. Her husband Earl (George Schulze) is conceited and self-centered and having a child with him is not something she imagined her life would be. Deep inside she has always wanted to pursue her passion for baking. To ensure that she is healthy to carry the baby, she pays the local Ob-Gyn a visit. Dr. Pomatter (Bibo Reyes) is new at the clinic and is immediately smitten with Jenna and her tasty pies. It doesn’t take long until they engage in an extra-marital affair. When she finds out about a big-time pie baking contest, she sees this as an opportunity to leave everything behind and start anew with her soon to be born kid. Can she really escape from her current reality or will she be stuck in an existential crisis forever?

ML

♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

Emotionally detached from historical events he is too young to comment on, teenager Carlo (Tony Labrusca) is always at loggerheads with his professor when it comes to Martial Law. Hoping his students would get firsthand insight through the perspective of people who lived during the regime, the professor gives them an assignment to interview someone from that generation. The first candidate that comes to Carlo’s mind is Colonel dela Cruz (Eddie Garcia), the senile ex-METROCOM officer who suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease and lives in the same subdivision. His condition leads him to believe that he’s still living in that era, dressing up in his uniform from time to time while loitering the streets of the village. He invites the young man to his home where he offers him some drinks before bludgeoning him on the head and torturing him at the basement.
