Kidlat (English: Lightning; Malaysian: Halilintar) is a 2013 weekly Philippine television drama that broadcast on TV5. It stars Derek Ramsay and Gene Castro.[1][2][3][4][5]


Voltaire was the son of the couple Dulce and Mario. At a young age, he and his mother were assailed by a "perfect storm" where lightning 'struck' Voltaire, but left him unharmed. He discovered he had power afterwards but he kept it from his mother. As he grew, he felt alone because of his secret, but everything changed when he met Lara.

Follow the life of Voltaire, an ordinary person, who acquired a strange power after being hit by lightning from the "perfect storm". Witness the journey of Voltaire as he learns to control and use his power to protect his family and his community from dangerous opponents. Derek Ramsay stars in this thrilling saga of love and resurrection as Kidlat.
