In this metaphoric story of violence and resilience from director Alvin Yapan, Fe (Irma Adlawan) returns home to the Philippines after several years of working overseas, her job a victim of global economic shifts. Fe is initially greeted with affection by her husband Dante (Nonie Buencamino), but he has a long history of domestic violence fueled by rage and long-term impotence, and Fe quickly discovers her time away has not changed him. Dante works in a factory making baskets, and Fe soon joins him there; she becomes the lover of Arturo (T.J. Trinidad), the man who manages the basket company, but while Arturo treats her well, he's still under the thumb of his father who owns the factory. Meanwhile, an unknown admirer sends her parcels of strange black fruit on a regular basis. Torn between two men who cannot give her what she needs and wants, Fe's frustration leads to take desperate steps to establish her independence. Produced in cooperation with Manila's Women's Crisis Center, Ang Panggagahasa Kaye Fe (aka The Rapture of Fe) won a special award for digital feature films at the 2009 Cairo International Film Festival.
