Piolo Pascual stars in Perya, a short film produced by Bench as part of its 25th anniversary.
Perya is directed by Topel Lee from the script written by Marci Reyes. It also stars Sue Prado.
A haunting love story set in a world where the grotesque is the norm, the hideous deemed beautiful. Here, Philippines' hottest heartthrob, Piolo Pascual, is a freak, a captive of a cruel circus. But when he ﬁnds love, he ﬁnds a glimmer of hope for escape.
Perya, as well as the rest of the Benchingko Films, will have a red carpet premiere tonight, 6 PM, at SM Mall Of Asia CenterStage. The short films can later be watched at http://www.bench.com.ph/benchingko/.
