Synopsis

Docudrama. On 30th November 2006, super typhoon Reming struck the Philippines, killing hundreds of people and burying villages around the Mayon volcano area in the Bicol region of the Philippines. Nine hours of relentless heavy rains and wind caused harrowing deaths and destruction. The typhoon was the strongest to hit the Philippines in living memory. Filipino poet, Benjamin Agusan, revisits his birthplace, Padang, now buried. He was in Russia for seven years, writing poetry, during which time he fell in love, buried a son, and almost went mad. He returns to bury his dead - including father, mother, sister and a lover - to confront issues, face secrets and both heal and create wounds.
