Ang Babaeng Humayo (The Woman Who Left) is a 2016 Philippine drama film written, produced, edited, and directed by Lav Diaz.
Filmed entirely in black-and-white, it was selected to compete in the main competition section at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival where it won the Golden Lion.

The Woman Who Left was the first film made by Charo Santos-Concio when she returned to acting after stepping down as President and CEO of ABS-CBN Corporation.
Ang Babaeng Humayo Plot
Horacia Somorostro was released in 1997 after being imprisoned for a crime she did not commit. Although Somorostro reunites with her daughter, she learns that her husband is now deceased and her son is missing. She realized that a thing remains unchanged – the power and privilege of the elite.
This belief is cemented when Somorostro later found out that her former rich lover, Rodrigo Trinidad was the one who framed her for a crime.
She learns that Trinidad is forced to stay within his house like his friends due to kidnapping incidents targeting the rich. To the ruling class, kidnappings are the most serious problem in the country’s history.
Somorostro begins to plot her revenge amidst the crisis.
