Kapamilya actress Sue Ramirez gives life to the story of a Filipina artist that went viral after touching the hearts of netizens in “Maalaala mo Kaya” this Saturday (Nov 5).
Genesis (Sue Ramirez) is a loving child, who aspires to be an artist just like her father Isco (Michael Flores). Her paintings may be bright and full of colors, but her dull and dark life is a great contrast of her masterpieces.
Her mother Emma (Sharmaine Arnaiz) disapproves of her love for art and sees it as a waste of time. Instead, she thinks it would be better to just focus on taking care of Taking (Nash Aguas), Genesis’ brother with epilepsy. With the rejection she experiences, painting helps her ease her pain, making each of them a great part of her life.
Soon, her mother is unexpectedly diagnosed with a chronic illness. Though it breaks her heart, Genesis makes a sacrifice of selling her priced masterpieces to pay the hospital bills and buy medication for her mother.
Will she be able to prolong her mother’s life through her paintings?
