The film stars Arnold Reyes as Sherwin, a lawyer and Oliver Aquino as Paolo, a filmmaker. Paolo does not believe in marriage. Meanwhile, Sherwin believes marriage is necessary to protect their rights as individuals.
They have been together for 3 years. But when one of them cheats their seemingly steady relationship is rocked to its core.
Their resolve to stay together is further challenged as they attend a wedding and are confronted by the need to know where their relationship is headed.
Director Joselito Altarejos has been known for his openly gay-themed, award-winning films like The Man in the Lighthouse, Antonio’s Secret and Pink Halo-halo. And one of his films, entitled Unfriend, was picked up by an international film production house for distribution.
He describes Kasal as “an examination on how a gay couple navigates through their own private space into a Filipino home, institutions and society as a whole.”
