Zaijian Jaranilla topbills the story of a man who worked hard to repay his family’s efforts to help him finish his education this Saturday (Jan 13) in “MMK.”
Even though he was born into an impoverished life, Freddie never stopped dreaming that someday he would become a teacher. However, being the youngest among twelve siblings, he knew it was not going to be easy since two of his older siblings have disabilities and needed more attention than him.
Lucky for him, a certain group of nuns offered him a scholarship. His family, especially his older brother Elo (JC Santos), even suggested to support his everyday needs by contributing five pesos every day.
But when he finished high school, his family begged off from supporting his studies any further. Their family’s situation got worse when Elo died because of kidney failure.
How did Freddie overcome this ordeal?
Joining this upcoming episode are Amy Austria, Enzo Pineda, Cris Villonco, Maritess Joaquin, Marco Masa, Brace Arquiza, Jimboy Martin, Mitch Naco, and Kamille Filoteo. The episode is directed by Nuel Naval and written by Akeem del Rosario. “MMK” is led by business unit head Roda C. dela Cerna and Star Creatives COO Malou Santos.
