In a fishing village that’s been ravaged by a strong typhoon, the bond of twin brothers is disrupted by another young boy. Hilom follows the journey of the brothers, Andres and Gael, as they find healing against the harsh landscape of an island that’s also trying to recover.
The breathtaking natural wonders that form Hilomxe2x80x99s background could already make for a compelling film even without a story, but its wide-open, windswept and shifting environments are used to good effect in this story of identity and bonds. A twin brotherxe2x80x99s close relationship is disrupted by a third boy, like the force of nature that continuously reshapes the island they live in. There is beautiful symmetry in how the twinsxe2x80x99 identities diverge and recombine, a symmetry that is delicately reflected in the filmxe2x80x99s poetic montages.
