Inspired by the dark tale of Huli in El Filibusterismo, this short film is a historical fiction referring to the comeback of the character after ages. Huli appears to be the savior of Karmela, a young lady who has been imprisoned in a heritage mansion.

Karmela was sexually abused by an old man, and tried to escape but failed constantly. As the evening approaches, Huli encouraged Karmela to run away. They were both freed that night – Karmela from exploitation, and Huli from her tragic story.

The film tackles issues about women and how history haunts justice. A story of courage, which breaks the stigma that has been tied to a historic character we once knew.
