Ashite Imasu is a romantic story of love, treason, collaboration, rebellion and revenge set in a small Filipino town during the Japanese occupation. Inya (Judy Ann Santos) just married her childhood sweetheart, Edilberto (Raymart Santiago). Her best friend, Ignacio, (Dennis Trillo in in a career-making performance) is secretly in love with Edilberto and is also a transvestite spy for the partisans. Trillo’s portrayal of a “comfort gay” for the Japanese garnered every major acting award in the R.P and propelled him to stardom. Joel Lamangan, who started as an actor for Lino Brocka, directs.
