Of All The Things
This is a story involving Emil (Aga Muhlach), an intellectual going through a tough time and Berna (Regine Velasquez), an overly ambitious woman who finds herself in trouble.
After failing his bar exam, would-be lawyer Emil’s life goes downhill. His “private law practice” is really just a service as a notary public and affidavits. He gains the nickname “Umboy” because his office is literally under a multicolored umbrella.
Meanwhile upscale Makati is Berna’s game. Her ‘transactions’ often happen in different offices and hotel lobbies. Her exact job description is vague but she is great at networking and has amassed a number of contacts. It is from hooking up these contacts that she earns her commissions.
But a sour transaction lands Berns in hot water. She needs to find herself a fake lawyer fast! And this is how Umboy meets Berns!
What will happen between these two disparate personalities? If friendship seems so unlikely, what chance do they have at falling in love? Find out in this new romantic comedy!
