Lisang is two years late. After dying from a complication of diabetes in her 60’s, Lisang has overstayed in her waiting room in purgatory, occasionally causing other souls trouble for her own entertainment. But today her waiting ends. Today, she is finally set to crossover and her room is to be leased to a new tenant: Manolo, her newly deceased ex-boyfriend.

Dan Villegas

Dan Villegas started his career as a cinematographer for Cathy Garcia-Molina, Mae Cruz-Alviar, Joyce Bernal, and Antoinette Jadaone. His first full-length film is the 2010 Cinemalaya coming-of-age Mayohan, which won Best Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Cinematography - for Villegas himself. In 2014, he directed English Only, Please at the Metro Manila Film Festival - and it was the beginning of his career as a director. He has since directed 10 movies. Hintayan ng Langit is his return to his independent cinema roots.
