Maalaala Mo Kaya continues to present socially relevant issues with its weekly episodes that do not only entertain but also reflect the real struggles and triumphs of ordinary Filipinos.
After recently featuring stories about the strong bond of a gay with a lesbian sibling and the inspiring experience of a teenage mother, MMK shares this Saturday (April 28) another empowering tale, this time about a woman who bravely decided to end her marriage for her to live again.
Topbilled by Dimples Romana and Ian de Leon, this week’s episode is about the misery that a battered wife had to go through the process of annulment.
In the story, Michelle (Dimples) filed an annulment case against her husband who was always beating her throughout their marriage. While dealing with this ordeal, she met a lawyer named David (Ian) who, like her, just came out of a bad relationship. As both struggle with their own failed romance, Michelle and David found themselves falling for each other. Amid the disapproval of their families and the judgment of society in their budding relationship, can Michelle and David prove that their love is genuine? Is there life after a failed marriage?
TV viewers, especially loyal followers of Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited, can look forward to this week's MMK episode since the big winner, Slater Young, will take on his first role in the drama anthology program.
Joining Ian, Dimples, and Slater this Saturday are Lloyd Zaragoza, Madz Nicolas, Soliman Cruz, Kaye Miranda, Charles Christianson, and Alyanna Angeles. It is researched by Matet Balanay, written by Joan Habana and directed by Nuel Naval.
Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) airs every Saturday after Wansapanataym on ABS-CBN.
