“Ulan” is written and directed by Irene Villamor, the same director behind the movies “Sid & Aya: Not a Love Story”, “Meet Me in St. Gallen” , and “Camp Sawi”.
The teaser shows a young girl who is fascinated with sunshowers. An elderly voice tells her that the reason why sometimes rain falls while the sun is still shining is because two “tikbalangs” are getting married.
In Philippine folklore, the “tikbalang” is a tall, long-limbed humanoid creature with the head and hooves of a horse that supposedly lives in mountains and forests.
At the end of the teaser, the young girl sees the “tikbalang” or a person dressed like one.
Director Irene Villamor has kept most of the movie’s plot under wraps but has said before that it is about a young woman and her experiences with three kinds of romantic love.
The official trailer shows Maya (Nadine Lustre) who seems frustrated in love. She believes she is cursed because everytime something good happens to her, it rains all of a sudden.
Will the rain ever stop Maya in her journey to overcome past heartaches as she searches for true love?
