How do you cope and heal when you’re in pain? Do you allow yourself to be consumed by sorrow until the pain subsides? (HILOM) Do you turn to temporary distractions or indulge in vices for momentary happiness? Perhaps you seek solace in travel, using it as an opportunity to escape and discover more about yourself. Alternatively, you may find comfort in the support of your family and friends, seeking reassurance that you are not alone in your struggles.
This June, witness the inspiring journey of a young man as he embarks on a path to mend his broken heart, guided by a stranger he encounters by fate.
Meet Sam (Arron Villaflor), a determined individual who meticulously plans every aspect of his life. In the prime of his years, he enjoys a fulfilling long-term relationship that seems almost perfect. Sam is content with his life and can hardly ask for more.
However, everything changes in an instant when his girlfriend of 10 years rejects his marriage proposal and ends their relationship. Devastated and overwhelmed, Sam finds himself in a state of despair, contemplating an end to his suffering.
No amount of sleep or medication can alleviate Sam’s profound sadness.
In an attempt to ease his troubled mind, Sam’s friends take him to a beach resort, offering him an escape from the relentless cycle of negative thoughts. It is here that he crosses paths with Sammy (Christine Bermas), a carefree and aspiring food vlogger.
Initially, Sam and Sammy struggle to find common ground due to their contrasting personalities. However, their shared experiences of heartbreak enable them to realize that they have more in common than they initially thought.
Sammy presents Sam with her Lucky-9 list, a set of guidelines she used to move on from her own past relationship. As Sammy helps Sam move forward, a deep connection begins to develop between them, and they both find themselves falling for one another.
Will Sammy be the one to help Sam finally let go of his pain and find healing? Or is she merely a life lesson that Sam must learn from and move on? Brace yourself for the unpredictable twists and turns in this narrative. While it may appear to be a familiar boy-meets-girl story, this film is so much more.
Directed by the versatile filmmaker GB Sampedro, allow yourself to embark on a transformative journey that will help you heal from your own painful past. Experience the premiere of “Hilom” on Vivamax this June 9, 2023.
