Coming from its huge success as digital BL (Boys’ Love) series in 2020, ‘Hello Stranger,’ top billed by Tony Labrusca and JC Alcantara, returns this February 12, 2021 as a full-length feature film.
Produced by ABS-CBN Films – Black Sheep, ‘Hello Stranger: The Movie’ is the first ever BL movie to be offered on a Valentine season by the Philippines’ biggest motion picture company.

While they, along with extra push from their enabling friends, navigate their young and innocent love in a romantic beach resort, new characters will threaten their relationship with crazy shenanigans and quirky stunts.
