A Mother's Story

I love my parents.
 Hmmm.... It's just really that mother's are superwoman. We grab every opportunity that comes especially when we see it as the answers to all our needs yet still the fact remains as we(moms) still cannot control things in our hand. We may do almost everything just for our family, courageous to face consequences, sacrifice and  struggles amidst our way just for our loved ones. Love-spoken is not enough says Albert Martinez in Nasaan ka Elisa. Blessed be our mothers.

About the Movie
Medy (Pokwang), a make-up artist, was given the chance of a lifetime to accompany a concert star to the United States for a performance.  She promised her family that she will return after a week.  However, while in America, she stumbled upon a former classmate Helen (Beth Tamayo) who convinced her to stay for good in the land of milk and honey.  She initially refused, but eventually gave in, when she got a call one night from her husband that they need a big amount of money to bring her youngest daughter to the hospital.  America has not been the friendliest to her and our story begins with her coming home to Manila literally with nothing.

Medy’s two kids, King (Rayver Cruz) and Queenie (Xyriel Manabat) are now 19 and 7.  King struggles with the return of his mother.  Animosity, resentment, shame, and anger are issues he has built with Medy.  For the young Queenie, it’s getting to know Nanay… who she thought would one day come out of a Balikbayan Box.  And as for her husband, Medy discovers something she least expected.

How will Medy put her life and that of her family’s back together, now that she’s back after 7 long years?
