You Are The One

You Are The One is a 2006 Filipino romantic comedy film starring Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga. The film was popular in the Philippines, and other countries with significant Filipino populations such as United States, Canada, Australia, Middle East, Italy, and Japan. The year 2006 ended with 5 Star Cinema films grossing more than Php 100M which includes You Are The One with a total gross of 113.73 Million.

Cute and bubbly Sally Malasmas (Gonzaga) reluctantly agrees to process her application for a visa, obeying her parent's wish that their small family be reunited. The rest of her family: mom, dad and older sister, Charry (Sta.Maria) are already residing states-side and they worry that she is lonely living in the Philippines by herself; but as far as Sally is concerned, her simple Philippine life surrounded by loyal, loving friends and co-workers is nearly perfect. During the interview, things goes awry and her application gets abruptly denied by the handsome, yet dismissive American consul, Will Derby (Milby).

The next day, a bewildered Will wakes from a one-night-stand with a girl he picked up from a bar the night before and due to the notorious Manila gridlock, he misses work. He finds himself instead diverted to the Census Bureau where Sally incidentally works. Seeing an opportunity for revenge, Sally burries Will's inquiry form beneath an already mounting pile of paperwork. As she expected, Will waits all day for his turn through sweltering heat and hunger until he gets fed up and finally confronts the scheming Sally.

She gives him a dose of his own medicine and nonchallantly brushes him off, informing him that his form cannot be processed properly because it is incomplete and that he must return the next day since its time for her to go home. An outraged Will cries foul to Sally's supervisor, who sides with him. Thus, in order to redeem the bureau's reputation, Sally's is ordered to stay behind after hours until Will finds the information he needs.

As it turns out, Will's cold and sullen demeanor is due to him agonizing over the search for his birth parents and any remaining family members he may still have in the Philippines; but more importantly, the reason why he was given up for adoption, a question that has been gnawing at him for years. Sympathizing with Will's plight, Sally takes it upon herself to help him find what he's looking for and through this common purpose the pair bonds and grows closer.

But it seems that each has a different idea of exactly what the new-found friendship means to the other. Will's casual relationships with women conflicts with Sally's old-fashioned virtues. Together, they must set aside differences, overcome clashing cultural prejudices and ethnocentric beliefs; otherwise, unsettled issues may put a stopper to their blossoming romance before they get the chance to realize its full potential.
