Everyone has the right to choose their partner. And many Filipinas prefer to end up with a foreigner. Exploring this concept of looking for an ideal foreigner lover and actually dating one, Vivamax presents the movie Afam starring Jela Cuenca, Robb Guinto and Nico Locco.

Hazel and Daisy (Jela and Robb) are friends and co-workers at the Bukang Liwayway Resort.

They are different in many ways: Hazel is sweet and a bit shy while Daisy is tough and a nagger. Both, however, are caring and ready to be in love.

Hazel dreams to build a complete family that she never had with the right man.

As for Daisy, all she wants is to have someone take her away from her family who treats her like a milking cow.

With the help of their former neighbor, Mirabelle (Katya Santos), Hazel and Daisy discover the fun of online dating and AFAM-hunting.

It’s how Mirabelle got herself a rich Italian husband.

Hazel and Daisy soon find a chatmate, not knowing that they are chatting with the same man who is using two names: JJ and Jamey (Nico Locco).

JJ/Jamey presents himself as charming and a perfect gentleman. But in reality, he is cunning and scheming.

When he comes to the Philippines to meet his girls and attend to some questionable business, they are startled about their situation.

JJ/Jamey’s deception is already a huge red flag but somehow, Hazel and Daisy still consider being with him.

Now, the two good friends become rivals.

When will they realize that the guy is not worth it? Will JJ/Jamey actually redeem himself and become the Prince Charming that the girls dream of? Who will he choose? Ultimately, after all the trouble, will the girls go for love or friendship?

Directed by Linneth Zurbano, Afam is available for streaming on May 5.

It co-stars Alexa Ocampo, PJ Rosario, Roi Alonte and Giselle Sanchez.
