In this Filipino remake of South Korean film Miss Granny (2014), a stubborn old woman named Parn (Niranuch Patamasute) steps into a photo studio and magically emerges as her 20-year-old self (Davika Hoorne). She uses the chance to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a singer.
“Sarah Geronimo is simply magnetic, capable of turning the most uninspired of scenes tolerable by just her presence.” Film Critic, Oggs Cruz
The movie picked up the Movie Actress of the Year; Movie Musical Scorer of the Year from the 35th PMPC Star Awards for Movies as well as the Movie Supporting Actress of the Year from the 50th Box Office Entertainment Awards.
