Lahar (Paraisong Abo)
In the aftermath of the eruption of Mount Pinatubo, a volcano dormant for more than 400 years, the residents of the whole town of San Simon in Pampanga was engulfed by dust and thick mudflow called lahar. The whole surviving residents of the devastated community are relocated to transitional evacuation center, a tent city, where different and unique personalities meet: Sheila (Dawn Zulueta), a migrant worker from Germany who is struggling to keep her family intact at all costs; Sonia (Jacklyn Jose) who is looking for her missing husband while pretending as a handicapped so she can beg on the streets; Ditas (Sharmaine Suarez), who returns in Pampanga after getting pregnant in Manila; and Elena (Daria Ramirez), a mother who lost her whole family in the eruption, yet she keeps a positive outlook in life that as long as she remembers her relatives no amount of tragedy could keep her from reminiscing of their once peaceful lives. This film entirely pictures the resiliency of Filipino in the face of extreme loss and devastation; their enviable survival instinct and unshakable dignity despite the destruction that struck them.
