She may be full of wit and humor on her viral Facebook posts about her conversations with her daughter, but life for Nanay Estrelita hasn’t always been good especially after she battled a a mental disorder that almost shattered her family.
Watch her story to be played by Rosanna Roces in her television comeback this Saturday (May 6) in “MMK.”
What Nanay Estrelita thought was just a simple “nervous breakdown” turned out to be schizophrenia, a mental disorder. With the help of the National Center for Mental Health, she was able to cure herself and stopped taking medications as soon as the symptoms were gone.
Little did she knew that her sickness would recur, to the point that she physically abused her daughter, Princess (Jana Agoncillo). This prompted her husband Aurelio (Ronnie Lazaro) to take Princess with him and leave Estrelita on her own.
How will Nanay Estrelita overcome this ordeal? How did she reunited with Princess? What will be the significance of Facebook in rebuilding her relationship with her daughter?
Joining this upcoming episode are Sharlene San Pedro, Mikee Agustin, and Marife Necesito. The episode is directed by Dado Lumibao and written by Mae Rose Balanay and Arah Jell Badayos. “MMK” is led by Star Creatives COO Malou Santos.
