Mercedes Cabral leads the cast of yet another great independent film under the direction of Ian del Carmen, which opens today in cinemas nationwide.  Cabral played the role of Andrea Maglalang who is a hotel receptionist in Castaway Hotel where she met the person behind her greatest obsession, the movie star Sam Lloyd Pascual, played by Francis Lopez (Mr. Philippines 2011).
