|Project||Nick and Chai|
On November 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan claimed the lives of Nick and Chai Quieta's four children, leaving them with nothing but each other and a house torn to pieces. Four months later, the couple is in limbo as they try to move forward, only to find their guilt and longing keeping them from taking the first step. We witness their emotional highs and lows as they try new hobbies, help their community recover, and perform little acts of kindness for their neighbors. What is it like to lose all of your children in an instant? We step inside the Quieta’s home to observe how they manage to get by and how they view life and death after the deadly storm that changed their lives.
The filmmakers hope to show, through a couple named Nick and Chai, how their compatriots in Leyte (Philippines) slowly pick up the pieces after a deadly typhoon devastated the region. Not only is the intention to make the people of Leyte feel less alone in their struggle, but also to encourage viewers from all over the world to reflect on how they deal with loss and recovery.
