SOL SEARCHING by Roman Perez Jr.
Sol Searching revolves around strict grade school teacher Sol Dolores (Gilleth Sandico), the only person in the community who has the guts and patience to educate the farmers. Living in a province whose only source of livelihood is farming, Sol saw what others had left as is—that their village’s farmers lack the knowledge and funds to produce enough crops for a living.
When Sol dies, her husband Djanggo Dolores (Joey Marquez) does not have enough funds to have her buried. It reached a point where her coffin had to be brought by Lorelei Baloloy (Pokwang) and Bugoy (JM Salvado) to various places so they could get enough funds or finally find someone who can help bury her.
