Parents will struggle to describe the amount of love they have for their children – it’s something that goes beyond words. So, when a parent loses a child, the pain and trauma may be the worst and most heartbreaking emotion a human being can feel.
In the Kapamilya action-drama Walang Hanggang Paalam, Emman (Paulo Avelino) and Celine (Angelica Panganiban) are the epitome of a parent’s strength that no matter how hurt over Robbie (Robbie Wachtel)’s ruthless killing, they still muster the courage to take on dangerous routes towards finding justice for their beloved son.
In this fight for the truth, Emman and Celine found each other as allies. They only have each other to trust and run to no matter what happens as even the highest-ranking officials in the investigation department display shady characters.
The corrupt justice system prompted Emman and Celine to take the fight into their own hands. They may have meager powers but their love for Robbie is more than enough of a weapon. Much to Celine’s surprise, and fear, their investigation led them to the Hernandezes upon the discovery of Anton (Zanjoe Marudo) using an untraceable mobile number to contact an anonymous friend. Celine assumed that it was Dr. Gomez, one of the major suspects, on the other line.
With a good amount of trust for each other, Emman and Celine proved the physician’s connections to the Hernandezes. Albeit inches closer to the truth, they know that solid pieces of evidence and not mere assumptions are needed to get the ball rolling.
Emman tried to get his job back, knowing it would be easier to execute his plans once he gets inside the NIA again. But knowing that Emman’s decision is fuelled by personal vendetta, Gabo (Art Acuna) rejected his re-application.
He instead got an unexpected job offer from Gen. Chavez (Tonton Gutierrez) who they all deem a hero but is one of the biggest villains and protector of the Hernandezes. Oblivious to Gen. Chavez’ true nature and motive, Emman takes the job while carrying on his personal mission.
Emman and Celine put on a stiff, enduring exterior. But when no one is looking especially when reminded of Robbie’s presence, the pain and longing would break the tough façade and reveal their vulnerability.
There was a scene where the ex-couple joined an event organized by Clarissa (Ana Abad Santos) for the parents of the victims of the notorious child and organ trafficking syndicate. The grieving parents share their sentiments and also tell Emman that his fearless fight for justice inspires them to keep pressing on as well.
A parent’s love, when used as a weapon to fight the good fight, will conquer all, even the seemingly indestructible and powerful.
Emman and Celine are closer to the truth, so don’t miss the next episodes of Walang Hanggang Paalam on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel 11.
