Breakaway (Original Title: Alagwa)

“Whether I win or not, I’m so proud and grateful for being a part of such a consequential film like Breakaway,” reveals Rosales.

It has been Jericho Rosales’ starring role in the romantic drama, “Subject: I Love You” that this international film star, who utterly captivated the hearts of the audience 2 years ago at the 2011 Newport Beach Film Festival, took home his first international acting award from his first international movie. Jericho returns to NBFF with yet another splendid performance in “Breakaway” (Alagwa), this time stretching the scope of his talent by co-producing his first film, and starring in a more unconventional role.

“Whether I win or not, I’m so proud and grateful for being a part of such a consequential film like Breakaway,” reveals Rosales. “I can’t wait for Orange County’s most influential film festival, the NBFF, to showcase this project and boost its true awareness: The Global issue of Human-Trafficking.”

Breakaway (Alagwa), an emotionally-gripping thriller, draws attention to the harsh realities of the human-trafficking atrocities taking place throughout the Philippines. The film centers on Robert Lim (Jericho Rosales), an impoverished single parent on a desperate search to find his abducted 9-year-old son, Brian (Bugoy Carino).

Utilizing excellent cinematography and allowing for loose—and even improvised—dialogue, the film highlights an authentic, unconditional love between father and son, filled with joy and laughter. However, that is just the prelude to a thriller of fluctuating emotions of fear, panic, and distress as Robert (Jericho) takes Brian (Bugoy) to the penny mall for a treat only to find that, after having turned his back for a mere moment, his son is nowhere to be found.

On Sunday, April 28 at The Triangle Cinema in Costa Mesa, Jericho Rosales and Director, Ian Lorenos, are expected to attend the premiere with festivities beginning at 3:30pm with red carpet arrivals.
