- Woman with a cursed life on this week’s ‘MMK’
- What if your grandfather is also your father?
Mary Joy Apostol plays a woman who must learn to rise above her as a product of incest on this Saturday’s (September 29) “MMK.”
Roxanne (Mary Joy) had a happy childhood being cared for by the social workers in a Bantay Bata Children’s Village she started living with her aunts. She was passed around from home to home from the age of seven and made to feel alone and unwanted.
She soon discovers the reason for her seemingly cursed existence when her father, Raul (Bembol Roco), gets out of jail. It turns out Roxanne is not only her father’s daughter, but also his granddaughter as she is the product of his rape of his own daughter.
Roxanne’s life will get harder from there. She experiences abuse and mistreatment from her Tita Rosa (Aiko Melendez) and her employer, who look down on her because of the belief that she is born of sin.
How will Roxanne accept the truth behind her existence especially when everyone despises her for it? How will she transcend the curse society has put upon her simply because of the way she was brought into this world?
Also in this episode are Mike Lloren, Raine Salamante, CX Navarro, Yesha Camile, Sue Prado, Mica Javier, and Jade Ecleo. It is under the direction of Nuel Crisostomo Naval and written by Arah Jell G. Badayos and Benson A. Logronio.
