The January 17 episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya
will feature two of the country's hottest hunks, Derek Ramsay and "Indie Prince" Coco Martin. The two will share the limelight as they portray an unlikely friendship between a man with a scarred past and a homosexual out to prove his worth.
Billy (Coco Martin) is a homosexual who
grew up hating his sexuality until he met Richard (Derek Ramsay). It was Billy who
helped Richard get accepted in a boarding house. Richard was attractive but
mysterious. Initially, Billy prevented himself from being attracted to Richard.
The two became friends but one time, Richard seduced Billy, thinking that it
was the payment for Billy's kindness to him. However, Billy's temper flared up as
he pointed out that he had genuine feelings for Richard. The new tenant realized
that Billy was different from other homosexuals he had met before. Eventually, the
mysterious man opened up his dark past to Billy.
Richard was a rape victim of his own closet gay father when he was young, and
had hated homosexuals ever since. His real intention of seducing Billy was to
take revenge on him, whom he sees as a shadow of his own father. He stayed in
the boarding house because he found his father in that town after several
years. Can Richard find it in his heart to forgive his own father? Will he
learn to accept and love Billy?
