Synopsis:
Gayuma is a magical tale of love going beyond the boundaries of social class, religious and superstitious beliefs, and urban-rural prejudices. A failed exorcism of a talking and dancing statue of a Child Jesus led an orphaned sacristan, Delfin, to concoct a love potion to make Carla, a Manila-educated girl from an affluent family, fall for him. After Carla drinks the potion and assents to all his advances, Delfin could not believe his luck until he is no longer certain whether Carla really loves him. Delfin descends into a deep sleep of paranoia from which no medical science could wake him. Carla goes on a pilgrimage to the heart of a lush mountain to overturn the enchantment of the love potion. A possessed statue of a Child Jesus stands between the two lovers. Will their faith bring them closer together or keep them apart?
