Wangwang, written by Elijah Borres and directed by Angelica Biescas, talks about an online group job interview gone wrong with the residents of Tondo and their respective barangay officials. It unravels the entrance to the maze in full confidence, passion, and a will to survive before being faced with encumbrances.

Coffee Break, is then penned by JR Ambol and directed by Elijah Borres, which serves as a breather to the rough path. Set in a webinar arranged by Ate Baby, former internet sweethearts, Jan and Andy, reunite on a chance encounter.

And lastly, a step to brave the doors and forge our own keys, Solo, written by Angelica Biescas and directed by Ace Pagkaliwangan, portrays the confrontation of two tenants with their landladies.
