The video is one hour and 32 minutes long. It thoughtfully summarized 10 years of Kathryn and Daniel's journey as individual artists, a loveteam, and a real-life couple一through their own eyes, the perspective of their loved ones and industry friends, and of course, the points of view of their fans.  If you aren't their fan yet, you will be after watching it.


The documentary highlighted both their struggles and achievements, their dreams and the reality they now live in, as well as their growth and drive to keep evolving. In the spotlight is KathNiel the tandem not just on-cam but also off-cam, and KathNiel not just a fandom but a family. 


Kathryn says of her partnership with Daniel, "We grew together sa lahat ng mga ginagawa, sa lahat ng mga projects, parang iba 'yung feeling 'pag may kasama ka. And mas secure 'yung feeling ko because DJ was there. And parang doble 'yung saya pag kayong dalawa. Siguro pinili namin na invest-an 'yung isat-isa and best decision ever. It’s really worth it kasi hindi ako magiging ganito if not for Deej and sana ganu'n din ako sa kanya kasi nagtulungan kaming dalawa. Hindi lang s'ya basta loveteam, partnership talaga. And malaking part si DJ sa journey na 'yun kasi s'ya 'yung nagpa-feel sa'kin parati na you are enough. 'Di ka kailangan ma-conscious sa mga ganyang bagay and aside from my mom of course, automatic naman 'yung pamilya sa growth, si DJ is really a big part of my personal growth."

Daniel, on the other hand, didn't shy away from declaring his love for Kathryn. He says, "Ang relationship namin ni Kathryn ay hindi perpekto, okay? Hindi lang s'ya hahaha masaya dba, love love love. Hindi lang ganu'n diba. Maraming nangyari at ako nagkakamali. Siya may pagkakamali, inayos namin pareho. Pinili namin 'yung love above all. Partner ko na ito eh. Partner ko na itong taong ito. Hindi ko kakayaning mawala sakin 'yun. Pero sa'kin kasi, hindi ko na kayang bitawan itong taong ito. And dahil sa mga ganu'ng bagay hindi mo napapansin, nag-gro-grow na rin kayo. Ang ganda nu'ng companionship. I'm just very lucky to have her as my partner in life. At masaya ako na binigay sakin ng Diyos 'yung isang ganitong kabuting tao. Hindi lang siya kundi 'yung pamilya nya para ako ay magabayan din'yun naman ang hinahanap ko sa isang tao eh, 'yung tao na maapektuhan ang buhay ko at babaguhin ako sa magandang paraan at 'yun 'yung binigay sa'kin."
