Tuos Storyline

In a small village located deep within the mountains of Antique, lives Elena, 55. She’s no ordinary woman: she is the village’s “Binukot,” a “kept maiden”; she was chosen as the fairest among the women in her village, so was confined inside her house, forbidden to go outside or work in the fields, and because she is respected and revere, a veil always covers her face.

She is also the one chosen to keep the oral tradition alive, memorizing the chants and performing them during special occasions.
But as the world progresses into the modern age, the age of the epics she chants about, even the very existence of the “binukot”, slowly deteriorates.

No one wants to be “chosen” anymore, least of all 15-year-old Letty, Elena’s granddaughter. Letty wants to live her life, go out, learn new things, and fall in love–all of which Elena disapproves of; she didn’t have a choice when she was chosen, so Letty doesn’t have a choice.

However, as Letty falls in love with a young man and threatens the sanctity of the “tuos” (the pact made between the supernatural deities and their village), putting her in danger, Elena realizes that she cannot just stand aside.

As she fights for Letty’s right to live her own life, Elena comes face-to-face with the ghosts of a tradition that shackled her into a life of solitary confinement.
