Nash Aguas plays CJ Reynaldo, a young man who suffers from depression borne out of his hearing and speech disabilities in this Saturday’s (November 10) episode of “MMK.”
Despite Jane (Eula Valdez) and Rey’s (Ariel Rivera) sacrifices in guiding their son because of CJ’s physical limitations, they fail to see the underlying depression and anger growing inside their adolescent son because no one completely understands him and his confusing world of silence. He turns to hostility and mulls by himself thinking he has no one to really turn to. CJ eventually learns how to draw and will use it as a tool to express himself. He will also have problems in getting along with his Fine Arts course and everyday college life because his teachers and peers can hear and speak.
Meanwhile, Jane even enrolls herself in a “sign language” special course to properly guide and support their son.
Is the insurmountable love of CJ’s family enough to save him? Will CJ’s perseverance to study in a normal school pay off?
This episode is directed by Mervyn Brondial and written by Mae Rose Balanay and Arah Jell Badayos.
