We were also lucky enough to collaborate with some of the Philippines' finest actors such as Annicka Dolonius and Alex Medina,’ explains the director Dean C.

‘Ghost’ explores the themes of the duality of love, a fierce romance on the one hand and a devastating disappointment on the other, perfectly fitting into a coming-of-age story that ‘Fixations’ unfold. ‘Everyone's been broken from something. You smoke some weed, you fall in love, they turn out to be a fuckboy, you're with someone shitty, you break up, you ghost them, you still love them, you resign, you meet someone new and there’s hope again.’

Listen to ‘Ghost’ and ‘Fixations’ by Raquel Lily to reignite hope in your life.
