Despite the objections of her boyfriend, the kind-hearted Puerto Rican, Anna Alvarado (Dayanara Torres), decides to teach at a local school that is infamous for its delinquent students. She meets Robbie Mojica (Gary Valenciano), an exceptional teacher with unconventional teaching methods. When she struggles to motivate her class, Robbie gives her pointers and together, they try to inspire the students to gain confidence in expressing themselves through song and dance.

Restoration Notes

Hataw Na is a 1995 musical drama, restored in 2016 by Central Digital Lab Inc. (CDL). The archival 35mm print from the collection of ABS-CBN Film Archives was used as the source for restoration. The film exhibited moderate to heavy impairments such as specks, flicker, OBB dirt, D-lines, and heavy breathing that took 610 hours to remove. The film was scanned and restored in high definition format while the audio from the Betacam copy of ABS-CBN Film Archives was restored by eliminating unnecessary noise such as crackers, pops, sizzles, clicks, hums, and hiss.
