LOGLINE

Limbunan captures the ritual motions of the women in a family preparing for the wedding of seventeen-year-old Ayesah who is betrothed to a man she barely knows. As Maguindanaon tradition dictates, she will be kept from public view in her private quarters—limbunan. As preparations for her union is underway, Ayesah is reunited with her childhood tutor Maguid who returns to the village as a militiaman after five years, reawakening Ayesah’s past memory of childhood infatuation. Throughout Ayesah’s confinement, her precocious and rebellious eightyear-old sister Saripa becomes her eyes to the world beyond her room. Ayesah’s aunt Farida is tasked to ensure that she is prepared for the wedding. However, Farida’s dark past challenges Ayesah’s resolve to choose between love and loyalty to tradition and family
