QUE SERA SERA Ep. 1-8 of 17
This series is a story of all-so-proud characters facing a huge blow from
love which they have never taken very seriously. Though it may seem trivial
to others, love is the greatest thing when it walks into your life. It makes
you laugh and cry and it even makes you a fool who's willing to give up your
life for your loved one. It's that foolishness that makes this portrayal of
youth so beautiful. This is QUE SERA SERA.
