Capitalizing on the celebrated Annabelle Huggins- Ruben Ablaza kidnap and illegal detention case, Larry Santiago Productions was able to persuade Ms. Huggins to appear on screen via "Adonis Abril," her debut movie. The move then was met with criticisms among various sectors. I think it fared well in the box-office as Huggins went on to do a few more movies.
