Paglipay Movie Plot
While working to complete the traditional dowry set by his potential parents-in-law, an Aeta boy named Atan Dimaya (Garry Cabalic) encounters a beautiful student-researcher, Rain (Anna Luna). Together with her classmate, she is working on their thesis about life patterns of intermarried Aetas (commonly called “kulots” because of their curly hair) and the lowlanders (known as “unats” which refers to those with straight hair). When his father reminded him that he needs to fulfill his promise of marriage to the Aeta girl named Ani (Joan Dela Cruz), he starts to distantiate himself from the researcher. After his no-show act at the night of their pre-wedding rituals, Atan sprinted downhill from infatuation to realizing the value of integrity and self-understanding. Endowed with breathtaking images of mountainscape and the desolate lands of Pinatubo terrains, Zig Dulay’s film illustrates the sad plight of a minority group whose life opportunities are greatly marginalized by a corrupt society.
