She may be ridiculed for having a hunched back, but Melanie has always followed a straight path in life and never bent her principles despite her dark past.
Watch as “MMK” features her story of survival and strength this Saturday (July 15) in an episode topbilled by actress Bela Padilla.
Melanie (Bela) was still very young when she met an accident that caused her hunched back. Growing up, she was teased and judged by many, but despite this, Melanie remained strong and focused on her dream of finishing her studies.
But life was really hard for her and her mother, who could barely send her to school. Thus, she stopped studying and went to Cavite to look for a job. Just as when she thought that she could start a new life in the city, her co-worker raped her, leaving her shattered.
How did she handle this ordeal? How did she move on from it when she carried the baby of a man who sexually assaulted her?
Joining this upcoming episode are Nina Dolino, Mickey Ferriols, Viveika Ravanes, Mutya Orquia, and Miel Espinoza. The episode is directed by Jerome Pobocan and written by Akeem Del Rosario. “MMK” is led by Star Creatives COO Malou Santos.
