By Marvin C. Gabas - Philippines | 2017 - 30 minutes.

Synopsis: There is what some locals from visayan mythology call the MARANHIG, our native version of the undead (zombie). It is an aswang who has failed to transfer their monstrosity causing them to rise from their graves to kill humans by biting their necks. 
The film follows Tomas (an aswang) and Mara (human) between their complex relationship and quest to realize that existence is meaningless without a reverence for life.
