Ben & Sam is a 2010 Filipino indie film, directed by Mark Shandii Bacolod and starring Ray An Dulay, Jess Mendoza, Micah Munoz, Ana Abad Santos and Tara Cabaero. The movie is about two campus kings who are in love.
Ben is haunted by painful memories of his abusive father, and is suffering even more at present due to his increasingly eccentric mother. He is eventually toughened by this condition. Sam, meanwhile, is still grieving the murder of his activist boyfriend. Both boys turn to recreational activities to forget their painful precedents; Ben becomes involved in basketball, while Sam takes up dancing.
Although Ben is surrounded by friends, he is unhappy, until a deep emotional connection and mutual admiration brings Ben and Sam together. Although Ben is confused, Sam is persistent and sincere, and their liaison eventually blossoms into something deeper.
