"Akala kasi nila na regular love scene lang, yung amoy-amoy lang sa dilim. Hindi. Nagulat siya."
Anderson considered doing the love scene more difficult than doing the action sequences. The young actor also considered his intimate scene with Dawn the most challenging he did so far.
"Masakit sa labi! Hindi ko naman akalain na ganun palang klaseng love scene. It was different. It was artistic and beautiful naman. I tried to make her comfortable. I did my best to make the scene very realistic. Second day pa lang sa shoot, yun agad ginawa namin. Nakakailang. Nakakagulat."
In the movie, Anderson portrays an inmate named Daniel who will turn into a hitman or a professional killer.
