Donsol is a movie about a whaleshark guide named Daniel who falls in love with the beautiful but mysterious tourist Teresa. The two individuals are nursing their own heartaches but find themselves hopelessly drawn to each other; Daniel was left behind by his girlfriend for a rich man, Teresa a widowed breast cancer patient.
The film was shot entirely in Donsol, Sorsogon and there are underwater shots of the star of the movie the butanding (whaleshark). It tackled major issues like illegal fishing that poses threats to the butanding. Fidel (Daniel's father) is an illegal fisherman and was caught by the police coast guard. This created friction between the relationship of Daniel and the kapitana of the town who provided jobs for them as a Butanding Interaction Officer or BIO.
The film was the Philippines' official submission to the OSCARS Foreign Language Film category in 2007.
