The film was loosely based on the Wattpad novel That One Summer by Aly Almario.[3][4] It was released on May 4, 2016 by Viva Films and made ₱15 million pesos on its first opening day of showing.[5][6]


Coby Martinez (James Reid) and Ava Buhay (Nadine Lustre) are childhood friends who only see each other every summer. Their friendship blossomed into a romance; however, they have yet to put a label on it. When Ava enters college she struggled with continuing her unclear relationship with Coby. She has met a new friend in Aldrin which made Coby reflect on the value of Ava in his life and their relationship.[7][8]


Additional characters were also cast–including Lance Lucido as Emmanuel Buhay and Jelson Bay as the Cornetto Ice Cream Cart driver. Jerry O' Hara, Peewee O' Hara, Karla Pambid, and Rein Gutierrez as Coby's best friend were cast with an uncredited role.
