| Warm and soothing.
Mother will not come home anytime soon. That is the concept on which this movie is based on. What makes a woman virtuous and acceptable by societywhen she has a family? Philippines have experienced a phenomenon where mothers and sisters have migrated in order to find success or simply to feed their families back home. That decision comes with a heavy price. Mothers will not always be there and children have to come to terms with that even as adults and realise that the absence is not the what makes them bad mothers.

This movie is about understanding and forgiveness. Not just between people and their expectations of life but of oneself with life itself. Overall it's a good movie which explores mainly parent-children relationships but also gives a clear view on how unpredictable cancer (or any kind of life- threatening health issue) may be.

Finally, this will not be a silly comedy but it's not the overly soul breaking drama movie you may have expected either. I found it rather soothing and earth grounded yet at the same time refreshing. It's rare to find a movie which can deal with life and The ending without being overbearing gives away a bittersweet sensation from which you experience but a taste. As for the aftertaste, it's like buying a dark chocolate. You what you will get but nothing prepares you for the surprising filling which levels everything in the end.
