Lily springs from a popular urban legend in Cebu about a shape-shifting witch who supposedly roams the streets at night.

About

The film imagines a backstory for this witch, casting her as a woman betrayed by the man she loves, left to die while he flees for a better life in Manila. This story is filtered through an avant-garde lens that unravels the various imbalances in Filipino society, whether between man and woman, rich and poor, Christian and not. Lily is strange and haunting, yet speaks with an authentic, confident voice.
