This movie exploited the real life love triangle of Nora Aunor, 'Christopher de Leon' and Tirso Cruz III.

This blockbuster film is a well made melodrama that featured the hottest love triangle in showbiz. Anita Linda is excellent as the poor protective mother of Nora while Rosemarie Gil is splendid as the opressive & "mataray" mom of Tirso. Their confrontation is one of the many dramatic & entertaining scenes in the movie. Nora is truly sympathetic as the woman in the center of the storm.
