Jake doesn’t feel nervous at all doing intimate scenes with Joem.

That role requires Jakes to play a gay man who tries – but fails – to repress his sexuality in the `70s.
In “Lihis,” Jake has decided to plunge head-on to an unknown place.  He doesn’t know if people will accept him for it. All he knows is that it’s good for him an actor. And that’s all that matters to him – for now. 

Joem Bascon knows he’s second choice to Baron Geisler in the role of Ador in “Lihis”, Joel Lamangan’s entry to the FDCP Sineng Pambansa, but he doesn’t mind.

As Ador, he’s a student activist who goes underground and meets Jake Cuenca as Cesar, an idealistic young poet while both of them are NPA rebels in the mountains. They have a clandestine affair, a no-no in the underground movement in the 70s. Then Lovi Poe comes between them and seduces Joem, bearing a child with him who grows up to be Isabelle Daza. Joem has torrid love scenes with both Jake and Lovi in “Lihis”.

The film is set against the backdrop of the New People's Army rebellion against the Marcos dictatorship.

Direk Joel, a political detainee during the Marcos dictatorship, said this film is based on a true story.

And the gay love scenes with Jake, did he have qualms? “Before we started shooting, Direk Joel explained everything to us and Jake and I resolved will cooperate sa anumang ipapagawa niya sa’min.” Will he do frontal nudity? “If he’d require us to do it, okay lang basta sa ikagaganda ng movie.”

The film, which is among the 12 entries to the Sineng Pambansa All Masters Series Film Festival, also stars Lovi Poe, Raquel Villavicencio, Tony Mabesa, Alex Castro, Jaime Pebanco, and Gloria Diaz.
