ONCE in our life we all wished to not feel pain, physically or emotionally. But what if you were born to not feel any pain at all? “Jowable”, “Paglaki Ko Gusto Kong Maging Pornstar” and “Tililing” director Darryl Yap once again introduces viewers to an unknown world in his new movie, “Ang Babaeng Walang Pakiramdam,” starring the multi-talented actress, singer and host, Kim Molina and comedian Jerald Napoles.

The movie is about Tasha (Kim), a woman diagnosed with congenital insensitivity to pain. This condition makes her incapable of feeling pain – be it physical or emotional pain. And because of her condition, she also has no idea how love works. Until she meets Ngongo (Jerald Napoles), a man with cleft palate. Ngongo becomes an instrument who made Tasha feel again, especially the joys of love and pains of heartache. And together, they experience an adventure that they will never forget.

Just like in his recent movie “Tililing”, which became controversial because of its insanity topic, Darryl Yap is not afraid of tackling topics that people are uncomfortable to talk about or unfamiliar with. Congenital insensitivity to pain is a rare condition that is not widely-known especially here in the Philippines. “Ang Babaeng Walang Pakiramdam” can give us an insight of this rare condition and how it affects the life of an individual who has this condition.

The movie is also the first on-screen pairing of real-life couple Kim and Jerald. The couple’s fans already know how sweet and funny they are together in their vlogs, and it is a refreshing treat to see them act together in a movie. Meanwhile, this is the second film of Darryl Yap and Kim Molina, who first worked together for the movie “Jowable”, which became a blockbuster hit in 2019.

“Ang Babaeng Walang Pakiramdam” is exclusively streaming on VIVAMAX on June 11. Presented by VIVA Films.
