A young photographer, Jun (Tommy Abuel), goes home during the Holy Week to visit his paralyzed father (Mario Montenegro), a doctor in a small provincial town.
He takes photographs of the Lenten rituals and meets a strange young girl, Teresa (Charo Santos).
They become friends. Both are intrigued by Teresa’s periodic lapses into strange behavior, over which Teresa has no control.
With Teresa’s mother (Mona Lisa), they seek the help of a psychic medium (Sarah Joaquin). It is revealed that Teresa is possessed by the spirit of her sister Rosa (Susan Valdez), who disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
Gradually, the puzzle is solved when the spirit, through Teresa, tells her sad story.
The film won Best Picture and Best Actress (shared with a Korean Actress) at the 1978 Asian Film Festival held in Sydney, Australia. It introduces Charo Santos and is the first feature film of Mike De Leon.
Directed by Mike De Leon.
