A film written and directed by Giancarlo Abrahan

Finalist for the 10th Cinemalaya Film Festival under the New Breed Category


It is summer, Jimmy and Issey Tolentino, both professors in the University of the Philippines, are on the brink of separation after almost 20 years of marriage. Jimmy, a Philippine Studies professor, chases after a deity that is the subject of his research when he mistakes it for the ghost of an ex-girlfriend. Issey, a creative writing professor, retreats to Laguna where she mentors young writers in a workshop in Makiling. Here, she is drawn to a young writer named Gab, who is also a student back in the university.

The lives of the three converge in the university. And when Gab wins a national literary prize for a non-fiction piece on his sexual awakening, a scandal ensues that puts their relationships under the spotlight.
