Children’s Remorse Over Mother’s Suicide in “Maalaala Mo Kaya”

Watch how four children regret and cope with the sudden loss of their mother who underwent depression and took her own life this Saturday (December 5) on “MMK.”

Sima (Aiko Melendez) is a caring and thoughtful mother but at the same time very strict and harsh when disciplining her children Nine (Jane Oineza), Pau (Kokoy De Santos), Aaron (Brace Arquiza), and Adet (Alexa Macanan). Thus, the four grew up distant from and fearful of her.

This hurts Sima so much and makes her feel useless as a mother. Adding up to her worries is their financial instability. One day, Sima decides to end it all and hangs herself.

How will the children deal with her sudden death? How will they move on from this tragedy?
