Vilma Santos returns to television with the airing of the digitally restored and remastered version of “Kapag Langit Ang Humatol” on ABS-CBN’s “Sunday’s Best” this Sunday, August 12.
In the movie, the Star for All Seasons plays Florida, a housekeeper who experiences cruelty in the hands of the family she served, which is led by the matriarch Octavia, played by veteran actress, Gloria Romero. She goes through worse when she gets pregnant with her señorito, Hector’s (Richard Gomez), child.
Florida soon leaves the household to find a better future. She returns as Blanca, a rich businesswoman with a plan to exact revenge upon the family who imprisoned her and mistreated her.
Its director Laurice Guillen won the Best Direction while the film won Best Cinematography, and Best Editing at the 1990 Gawad Urian Awards.
