Boots Anson-Roa and Sylvia Sanchez Star in ‘MMK’ Episode on Alzheimer’s Disease

A daughter learns to let go of an old family conflict and returns home to care for her gravely ailing mother in this Saturday’s (December 22) episode of “MMK,” which stars Sylvia Sanchez and Boots Anson Roa. This is the second part of the “MMK” Christmas episode last year, “Sumbrero” featuring Toni Gonzaga, Gloria Diaz and Boots Anson-Roa.

Jona grew up resenting her mother for being too busy with the family’s livelihood and developing an addiction for gambling and drugs.

As Jona is pushed to the limits, she eventually elopes with her boyfriend Ruben (Nonie Buencamino), leaves her family, and vows never to end up like her mother.

When Nita loses her husband, she falls into a state of depression. Jona decides to forget her past resentments upon learning of this and returns home to take care of Nita. When it becomes apparent that Nita has lost her sense of reality and becomes forgetful, her family discovers that she is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. One day, Nita doesn’t come home and gets lost for two whole weeks.

How did Nita’s family fight the biggest battle of their lives?

Also in the episode are James Blanco, Marc Acueza, Axel Torres, Tom Doromal, Alexa Ilacad, Ced Torrecarion, Joel Molina, Mickey Ferriols, Mary Joy Apostol, Michael Rivero, Toby Alejar, Claire Ruiz, Isaac Tangonan, Jacob Dionisio, JB Agustin, Raikko Mateo, Peewee Ohara, Nikki Valdez, and Jai Ho. This episode is under the direction of Nuel Crisostomo Naval and written by Benson Logronio and Arah Jell Badayos.
