Xian Lim and Coleen Garcia Team Up as HIV Couple in ‘MMK’

In commemoration of World AIDS Day, MMK features a touching love story of an HIV inflicted couple, portrayed by Xian Lim and Coleen Garcia, that will prove love knows no bounds this Saturday (Dec 3).


Before Rina (Coleen Garcia) and Gabby (Xian Lim) fell in love, numerous misfortunes had struck Rina. In one of her stints while working abroad, she fell in love with the wrong man who got her pregnant and eventually left her. As a single mother, she kept her hopes alive and tried her luck in Dubai to provide for her daughter. However, several months into her contract, she was raped by her employer.

Rina’s sufferings didn’t end there. Her dream of having a better life was crushed when she found out that she had acquired Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) as a result of the rape while she was recovering in the Philippines. On the verge of giving up on life, Rina accidentally met Gabby, a member of an HIV organization, and, like her, is also HIV-positive.


After Gabby’s wife died of complications from HIV, he and Rina became closer to each other as they tried to give color to each other’s life. Eventually, their relationship blossomed from being friends to lovers.

Will they be able to build the family they always dreamt of having? Will their love for each other be enough to face the struggles of their disease, including the judgment of others towards their relationship?
