Combining romance, drama, action and international intrigue, Subject: I Love You is ultimately the story of a young man, Victor, who will do anything to reconnect with the only woman he’s ever loved – even if that means entangling himself in an international criminal investigation.

Also known as LoveLetter, is a computer worm that successfully attacked tens of millions of Windows computers in 2000 when it was sent as an attachment to an email message with the text “ILOVEYOU” in the subject line. The worm arrived in email inboxes on and after May 4, 2000 with the simple subject of “ILOVEYOU” and an attachment “LOVE-LETTER-FOR-YOU.TXT.vbs”. The final ‘vbs’ extension was hidden by default, leading unsuspecting users to think it was a mere text file. Upon opening the attachment, the worm sent a copy of itself to everyone in the Windows Address Book and with the user’s sender address. It also made a number of malicious changes to the user’s system.
On May 5, 2000, two young Filipino computer programming students named Reomel Lamores and Onel de Guzman became the target of a criminal investigation by the Philippines’ National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents.
