“This movie depicts the ugliness of sin and how sin causes misery that usually bring us to a near despair situation,” said Nebrida, who also penned great films like “Langis At Tubig,” “Init O Lamig,” “My Only Love” “and “Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon.”

“Flames of Love promotes the power of prayers, the Divine Love and Mercy of Jesus as it gives us the story of four families’ struggles and how they cope with temptations and inner conflicts,” she added.
