Hyperthymesia, also known as piking or hyperthymestic syndrome, is a condition in which an individual possesses a highly superior autobiographical memory (HSAM), meaning he or she can recall the vast majority of personal experiences and events in his or her life. This is exactly the theme of Regal Entertainment Incorporated’s upcoming love story titled–Finding You with Jerome Ponce in the lead role as Nel.
Ponce is an individual who never forgets, literally and he has this rare condition called Hyperthymesia. But one day, there was this girl that challenged him because he cannot remember her. In the film, Jane Oineza is Kit, Nel’s girl best friend who helped him revisit his relationships and uncover who the mystery of the posts that starts with ‘Dear You’.
After Ponce and Oineza’s stint together in the remake of the 1986 Ricky Lee written film Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita into a TV series of the same time in 2015, this film (Finding You) is their reunion project. Both are joined by Barbie Imperial who admitted during the media conference that she’s thrilled to be in the film for it is her longest appearance with lines in a film.
The film is directed by Easy Ferrer and will be showing in cinemas on May 29.
