Ploning, is a story of one mans search for the enigmatic woman who has deeply wounded him in the past. Having grown up in an illegal Taiwanese fishing vessel, Rodrigo (30 years old) returns to the beautiful island of Cuyo and is given from sunrise to sunset to look for his Ploning. In his search, he discovers that the woman he loved and adored as a boy is not the woman he thought he knew. Ploning has displayed her maternal love for Digo ( the 6-year old Rodrigo) but is shrouded in her mysterious love and devotion for Tomas, her childhood sweetheart who left her when she was 16. This 30-year-old spinster who has held a special place amongst the people as a dutiful daughter, a devoted friend, a caring sister and a loving maternal figure is slowly unveiled through Rodrigos memory and an emotional meeting with Plonings confidante, Seling. Through his search, Ploning will be revealed as the islands most bittersweet source of selfless love.

Ploning: Its Beautiful Wonders.
23 September 2008 | by seojbaultSee all my reviews

As i watched this movie last May when it totally shown at cinemas nationwide, the movie itself really captures my desire to watched it again. The plot of the story is very simple yet very interesting and full of intense in the sense that the climax of the story was not yet reveal unless you watch it full. there some kind of surprise who really is Ploning. the movie was wonderful, the cinematography, the setting wherein it was shot in an island that is so blessed in terms of its cultural heritage, its generous people and of course the island is such a paradise to explore more of its natural wonders. I believed that this movie has long way to go..far beyond my expectations. Just watch it and feel its effect into your lives.
