Their situation, however, does not last long, and the days of separation arrive. The separation happens when Sis depends heavily on her mother due to her special conditions, and Tala is trying to provide security for Ati’s future in the remaining time; a future without her presence.

Filmography   

filmmaker's note
When you become a mother, you are not yourself any more. Someone else is in your place; someone whose presence is because of you. And because of your role, you are dependent, you are attached, you are stuck, and you are in love . When you become a mother, it seems that your heart is chopped into as many pieces as your children, each piece in someone’s hand, pulling you wherever they want. As if your heart is beating outside your chest, fast and anxious. When you become a mother, you are not yourself. You are only a mother.
