Will their love last forever?
“Hello, Love, Goodbye” tells the story of two OFWs from Hong Kong, destined to change each other’s lives forever.
Joy (Bernardo) is a spunky poor millennial who works as a domestic helper in Hong Kong. While she excels in her job and enjoys the friendship of many other empowered domestic helpers, she plans to leave the city soon. Hong Kong is only her stopover. Determined to live a greater life far from her depraved childhood, Joy has big dreams of succeeding in Canada or wherever her dreams may take her.
In her journey to achieving her goals, Joy meets Pinoy bartender Ethan (Richards). Ethan is a sweetheart playboy already building a permanent life in Hong Kong. In a few years, he will officially become a resident in the city. After escaping responsibilities all his life, Ethan now wants to commit to a career and to his family (who also reside in Hong Kong).
Joy and Ethan soon develop a friendship. The two become each other’s joy against the grime and grind of Hong Kong. So much so that when lonely nights come, they fully surrender to each other’s comfort. Still, they warn each other: this is just “for now”, we are not permanent.
Nonetheless, as they overcome more and more problems in Hong Kong together, Joy and Ethan’s love deepens. They become each other’s savior—helping one another mend their lifelong wounds and realize their ambitions. They wonder, can their “for now” turn to forever?
“Hello, Love, Goodbye” will screen on UAE cinemas starting August 8.
