This is the story of a woman’s struggle with grief, loss, depression and her vulnerability. Linda finds love a second time around with Oscar, a much younger man who came to Canada to escape poverty. He also learned early on to use lies, deceit and sex for money.

It also tells the story of the lives of Filipino immigrants and their experiences with love, loss, relationship issues, depression and struggles that come with starting a new life in Canada.

Directed by Beverly Vergel, Living Instead produced by BE Rogue Productions is the First Feature Film with a 100% Filipino Canadian cast, staff and crew shot in Canada with some scenes in the Philippines.
