After rending our hearts in the two-part episode featuring the inspiring story of a hardworking dad’s unconditional love for his children inflicted with chronic kidney failure, Maalaala Mo Kaya is yet to pierce our hearts and tug our heartstring anew with the story of two different moms who love the same daughter in its upcoming episode this Saturday, July 24.
Helmed by seasoned director Mae Cruz-Alviar, the #MMK2LoveYouMom episode is topbilled by award-winning actresses Iza Calzado and Shamaine Buencamino and versatile young actress Heaven Peralejo. It will chronicle the story Heaven’s character named Julie, a diligent girl who is blessed with two loving mothers to guide, take care, and support her in all her endeavors. Thus, the catchphrase on the trailer, “Nang matakpan ng ulap ang kanyang ilaw, may hahawi nito para muli siyang magliwanag.”
Julie at first resented her biological mom Caridad (Iza) because of the responsibilities passed on to her after she developed schizophrenia, but the motherly love bestowed to her by one of her teachers, Esther (Shamaine) eased all her sufferings and bitterness.
Just by simply going through the behind-the-scene photos shared by MMK on its official Instagram account, which we collated in this gallery we can immediately feel and see the heavy drama and tear-jerking scenes that are waiting for us in the anticipated episode.
In a media interview, Iza and Shamaine related that this is “very close to their hearts” as it reminds them of their loved ones who passed away due to mental illness, as well as tackles the importance of mental health and promotes awareness to the public. Iza lost her mom almost two decades ago after battling with depression, the same with Shamaine and her husband Nonie Buencamino whose daughter, Julia, also succumbed to depression in 2015.
