Seklusyon Movie Plot Summary
The movie is set up in 1947 when aspiring priests are being sent to a remote and quiet convent on the last seven days of their training so they can be protected from evil. Miguel (Ronnie Alonte) was the newest deacon to arrive at the seclusion house and met Carlo (JR Versales), Fabián (Dominic Roque), Marco (John Vic De Guzman), and Sandoval (Lou Veloso), an old and former priest who has been excommunicated by the bishop.
Meanwhile, a young girl named Anghela (Rhed Bustamante) is being assisted by Sister Cecilia (Phoebe Walker) as she has been miraculously healing sick people. However, Padre Ricardo (Neil Ryan Sese) is not convinced and started an investigation on Anghela’s background. But because the bishop believed that Anghela was sent by God, she was allowed to stay at the seclusion house. Later, Padre Ricardo discovered the dark past of Sister Cecilia and Angela, whose name was spelled as Ngalhea in a document.
