The one and only Superstar Nora Aunor is making a comeback to â€œMaalaala Mo Kayaâ€ this Saturday (May 7) to pay tribute to mothers in an inspiring story of hope and sacrifice.
Nora will play Yolly, a mother who will do anything and everything for her children, four of whom have disorders.
Yolly and husband Nicky (Joel Torre) dream of having children of their own and build a family. Unfortunately, their genes turn out to be incompatible. Their first child is diagnosed with down syndrome, while their second and third children have cerebral palsy.
Despite this, the couple will love their kids with all their hearts. Their fourth child is normal and their fifth has cerebral palsy as well.
Yolly is then left with the responsibility of solely taking care of their children when Nick works abroad to provide for the family financially.
Just when Yolly has fully accepted her fate as a mother of children with disabilities, her first, second, and third children, die one by one.
How will Yolly find the will to continue living despite losing her kids?
The Superstarâ€™s Motherâ€™s Day special is her fourth â€œMMKâ€ episode. She previously starred in â€œLot 8 Blk 13â€ in 1991, in â€œRetasoâ€ where she first teamed up with Joel Torre in 1997, and â€œLubidâ€ in 2002.
