Viewers witness Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos at her very best in this film. Packed with emotional and dramatic confrontation scenes between mother and child, Santos as Josie gets to slug it out with actress Claudine Barreto in here, who portrays her wayward child. A very compelling story of a mother who has to leave her children behind and care for other people's children in Hong Kong, this film will break your heart and gives viewers a peek on the miserable life that a mother has to endure just to earn income for the family and kids. Barreto is also outstanding in her portrayal and kudos also to the rest of the cast, notably Joel Torre who portrays the role of Josie's husband. A tear-jerker, this is worth checking out.
