Hello, my name is Christian Linaban and I’m making my first feature film under Cinema One Originals entitled “Aberya”.
We have just finished shooting and we humbly continue to extend our hat towards you. We are in the post-production and marketing stage and we need your patronage.
Help us and avail of the graphic novel and other merchandise.
Aberya is a trip through the seamy side of Cebu through the eyes of four anti-heroes: an egomanic Fil-am boxer on a pleasure trip, a prostitute from Luzon on a mission, a local drug dealer experimenting with time travel, and a social climber from Mindanao caught up in a scandal.
Lourd is an American boxer with a Rags-to-Riches story. His Filipino parentage has made him a household name in this country. When he comes to the Cebu, he takes advantage of the celebrity status to go on a hedonistic binge.
Angel is a professional escort with a very distinguished clientele. She cannot afford to open her heart to anyone for obvious reasons. But is her heart the only thing she’s hiding?
Mike is a budding drug dealer with a penchant for psychedelics. Living in the fringes of society, he finds a way to make a drug cocktail that will take him to the future – far away from memories of a girl that came in the way of his experiments.
Eden is a nurse with an online sex scandal. Her notoriety makes her an easy target for harassment and prejudice, putting her plans of going abroad at a standstill. As her life crumbles around her, she becomes desperate for any sort of life line.
All of these characters meet in the seemingly quiet Queen City of the South and when they do, chaos ensues.
