Synopsis: A test of faith threatens to tear apart a small town already reeling from a communist insurrection. The conflict is set between the outspoken parish priest, Padre Allan (Ricky Davao) and the charismatic faith healer whom everyone calls “Manong” (Nanding Josef). In the middle of this conflict is the death of Ada (newcomer Stella Peñalosa), a young woman who many believed was have been possessed by the devil before her death.
“Manong” still feels the agony for his failure to save Ada, as the soul of the young woman roams the barrio. He senses that his own death is near as well and anoints Mario, a young farmer (Mark Herras) to be his heir apparent. But Mario’s wife, Isay (Aiza Marquez) is skeptical about the faith healer and the promise of a child for the couple.
As days pass by, the young woman’s ghost appears to Mario. Mario is reluctant and tries to make sense of the message Ada’s spirit is telling her. The conflict between the priest and the charismatic healer is unwoven. The young healer takes the old’s man’s place and the town heals its spiritual wounds.
