[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

[PACO] Come in. Take a seat.

We're gonna eat.

Sir Paco,
thank you for inviting us over.

[PACO] Don't mention it.
Come on, let's eat.

What's the occasion?
Is it your birthday?

No, his birthday is December.

Yeah, I know it's December, too.

[CHUCKLES] You're right.
It's not my birthday.

But I have a gift
for all of you.

- A gift? What kind of gift?
- But it's not yet December.



[SIGHS] I've decided that

I won't sell the land anymore.

[FARMERS] Huh? What?

This land, this ranch…

I'm giving it to you.

- Wow! Really, sir?
- Sir, are you sure?

- Thank you.
- [APPLAUSE]

Yes.

I know we have mismanaged
this land.

But you stood by us
and never left.

You took care of this land.

You tilled it.

Everything that we have

is because of you.



So I thought,
why not reward the people

who worked hard for it?

- Thank you so much!
- This land, this ranch,

is all yours.

- Thank you. Wow.
- Congratulations.

And if it's okay with you,

we'd like to keep a small piece
for ourselves.

But the rest is yours.

Oh, my. You're heaven-sent.

If you don't mind me asking,

why are you doing this?

[SIGHS] I'm doing this

to correct every wrong thing
that was ever done.

To heal every wound.

You've sacrificed a lot
for this land.

So it's only right
that I give it to you.

Thank you so much, sir.

But I noticed something.

You haven't touched the food.

- [LAUGHTER]
- Come on. Dig in.

[MAN 1] Sir, thank you.

[MAN 2] I think I'm gonna eat
a lot after this.

Dig in, guys.

[MAN 1] Let's start eating.
Thank you, sir.

- [PACO] Help yourselves up.
- [WOMAN 1] Thank you, sir.

[PACO] You're welcome.

[MAN 1] We finally have
a piece of land.

[MELANCHOLY MUSIC PLAYING]

[WHISTLING]

[HORSES SNORT, NEIGH]

[CHUCKLES]

Mister, get the horse inside
once you're done cleaning.

It's already taken a bath.
I'll leave it to you.

Thank you.

Seb.

What are you doing here?

Haven't you done enough already?

I hope one day
you can forgive me.

Us too, Cherry.

I hope one day
you can forgive us.

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

Take care of yourself always.

Are you leaving?

Where will you go?

I don't know.

We'll see.

That's sad to hear.

I know.

You know…

I never thought
that one day you'd leave us.

That we'd have to part ways.

To me, that seems impossible.

Are you sure about this?

My heart's telling me
that I shouldn't.

But my mind's telling me
that I should.

I was broken.

And I broke you, too.

So, before anyone else dies,

I guess we should
part ways for now.

Whatever happens…

I never wanted
what happened to Colleen.

We would've fixed it.

I would've fixed it.

Too bad.

Take care of yourself, Cherry.
Wherever you will go.

You too, Seb.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[HORSE SNORTS]

[NEIGHS]

[PHONE RINGING]

Hello?

Paco?

Cherry left.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Where is she going?

[SEB ON PHONE]
She didn't say, but…

if you want to talk to her,
you still can.

Probably meet her
at the terminal.

This way to Cebu.

Hop in.

Sir, you look like an OFW.

[TIRES SCREECHING]

Cher? Cherry!

[MAN] Let's get going.

Cherry? Cherry!

Cherry?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SAD MUSIC PLAYING]

[CHERRY]
No matter what happens…

[SOBBING] …I will choose you.

You alone.

Always.

I love you.

I love you too.

[PACO SIGHS]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

- [LAUGHTER]
- [PACO] Is it "stairs"?

- [CHERRY] Yes!
- It's "stairs", right?

- [SEB] You were just lucky.
- That was luck.

[SEB] What's the score?

[COLLEEN] You're good
at Charades.

[PACO] My wife is the best.

Score is seven and two.

- [PACO] What?
- [CHERRY] Paco!

Paco, that's enough.

Stop it.

[CHERRY] Love,
you shouldn't drink too much

- if you can't handle it.
- [PACO] Okay then.

All right.
But don't forget about later.

[CHERRY LAUGHS] Whatever.

He came back
because he loves you

and your brothers.

- [DREW] Paco, stop.
- [CHERRY] That's enough.

- [BECCA] That's enough.
- [DAVE] What's your problem?

[PACO YELLS] You!

You're my problem.
You're selfish.

[PACO] I'm so sorry, okay?

[CHERRY] Sorry for what?

[PACO SOBBING] For everything.

[CHERRY] Don't come near me!

[PACO]
Love, let's talk about this.

[CHERRY] About what?

About how you lied
about what your father did?

[PACO] Love, let me explain.

[CHERRY] How could you
do this to me?

- [CHERRY SOBBING]
- [PACO] I already told you.

Love, there is no letter.

Why won't you believe me?
There is no letter.

[CHERRY] Please don't take me
back there!

[PACO] Let her go! Now!

[CHERRY] I love you.

[PACO] I love you more.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
CONTINUES PLAYING]

Bananas on skewers!

Bananas on skewers!

Get your bananas on skewers!

Bananas on skewers!

[PEOPLE MURMURING]

[CHERRY] Come on, you guys.

These are still fresh and hot.

[WOMAN] How much is it?

[CHERRY] It's 15 per piece.

- How many are you getting?
- Just one.

One. Just pick and choose.

How many are you getting?

Okay.
These are all freshly cooked.

Here's your change.

- [MAN] Give me two.
- [GIRL] Mama!

Mama!

Malaya!

Mama!

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

Malaya!

[CHUCKLES] Where's my kiss?

Wow. That's a lot of kisses.

Oh, wow.

Now it's mama's turn. [SMOOCHES]

There you go.
Where do you want to go?

Do you want ice-cream?

- Oh, no.
- Yes?

Then, later,
we're gonna dance together.

-Yes?
-[BOTH LAUGH]

The Brahmans are popular
in meat production.

They're easy to maintain,
even in backyard farming.

Their endurance is tough,
and they can handle the climate

here in the Philippines.

As for the reproduction…

Estrella.

Just a minute. What is it, sir?

Nothing serious.

I just want to thank you
for everything you've done here,

for your fellow inmates,

You're giving them
the opportunity to learn.

[SIGHS] Thanks for your support.

Which is why we're looking
for your replacement.

Why?

Because we've endorsed you
for a conditional pardon,

and it was already signed
by the president.

[SIGHS]

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

Thank you.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

[ENGINE ACCELERATING]

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

You still can't believe
you're back home?

It looks the same as I left.

Look who's back.

- Hey.
- Drew. Seb.

[DREW] Look at you. You've…

[GROANS]

- Sorry.
- You're looking good.

Hey, Seb.

- Welcome back.
- Thank you.

Dave, how are you doing?

I'm doing better.

I can move my hands now.

Maybe in five years,
I'll be able to walk.

[CHUCKLES]

That's great.

Don't worry, Dave.

Since I'm here now, I can help
you with your therapy.

Great. Thank you.

- [CHUCKLES]
- Good to have you back.

Thanks, Dave.

[HAPPY MUSIC PLAYING]

[MOOING]

Our share of the land ends here.

The farmers now own the land
here up to the farm.

[SIGHS] That explains
why you want to work here.

The area is smaller
and easier to manage.

There's no one else
to look after it.

And Dave can't ride a horse.

[BOTH LAUGH]

And you were in prison.

So there's no one left but me.

[SIGHS]

This is different.

Seb Estrella is finally
serious about life.

[BOTH LAUGH]

This is what Colleen
used to say.

And it makes me feel
like she's always around.

Still scolding me, like,

"Hey, Seb, dream big
for your family."

Now I can tell her, "This is it.

I'm finally doing it."

[CHUCKLES]

Do you still miss Colleen?

Of course.

So, are you gonna start
helping me around?

Sure. [CHUCKLES]

But, first,
there's someone I need to find.

Let's watch a movie.

You guys go ahead.
I have something else to do.

- You're just meeting someone.
- I wish.

Take care, you guys.

All right.

Bye-bye.

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

I've missed you.

Wait.

Do you have a boyfriend?

You're asking me that already?

I'm serious.

Do you?

I'm married.

Ouch.

No, I'm kidding.

[CHUCKLES]

[BRIGHT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Four thousand.

The electric bill is 4,000.

Yet we don't even own
an air conditioner.

Even the water bill is high.

Yeah, everything is.

Even my eyebrows are so high,
it's touching the roof.

[SIGHS]

I'm gonna figure it out,
don't worry.

What, you're gonna find
another side job?

Cherry Red, why don't you just
reach out to the Estrellas?

Introduce Malaya to them.

I'm pretty sure Paco will be
willing to support his kid.

No.

I don't need to explain myself.
Just no.

Why? Are you scared that
they will take away the kid?

Maybe.

[SIGHS] So you'd rather
die instead?

Auntie, my daughter
is not gonna die.

I wasn't talking about the kid.

I meant you.

You've been working so hard
to survive and provide

that you're also
killing yourself.

I'd rather do that

than pretend
that I haven't gotten over it.

I still remember what they did
to me like it was yesterday.

So I'm sorry if I can't do it.

Come on, Cherry,
you're smarter than this.

I didn't say
you should forget everything.

All I'm saying is,
we managed to survive

because we were practical.

I'm still practical, auntie.
But I'm firm.

Is Paco the father?

[SIGHS]

- Of course, auntie.
- Oh, okay, okay.

I just had to make sure
that it wasn't the reason

why you haven't
introduced the kid to Paco.

Whatever you say.

Oh, come on.
I didn't say anything wrong.

[SIGHS]

For you.

[CLEARS THROAT]

I apologize

for not being able to visit you.

It's fine.

I didn't want to bother
your studies.

I heard you graduated
as cum laude.

Congratulations.

I'm impressed.

Even inside prison,
you managed to stalk me.

[CHUCKLES]

I asked around about you.

Um…

So, what's your plan now?

[SIGHS] Well…

I want to help my family

in any way I can.

For all the troubles
I've caused,

it's time to repay them.

Does this mean
you're going straight now?

For good?

Sure.

This time it's real.

Um…

how's your family?

You can ask them yourself
once you meet them.

How about Cherry?

We haven't heard from her.

Even Paco doesn't know
where she is.

But why not?

You said it's more profitable
to put up a canteen there.

[SIGHS] But, auntie…

But what?

[SIGHS] I can't just leave
whenever I want.

It's hard to stay in one place.

Cherry Red, aren't you tired
of running away?

We're even worse than fugitives.

You know what? Maybe you should
wear rubber shoes every time.

That way, you can run
right away. Right?

Seriously, auntie?

Malaya is getting older.

Do you want her to grow up
feeling like she has to hide?

You have to endure the pain
in order for the wound to heal.

I wish it was that easy, auntie.

What is it
that you want, Cherry?

Do you want them
to be paralyzed?

Do you want them to eat mud,
or lose everything?

[SAD MUSIC PLAYING]

- [WOMAN] Okay.
- [MAN] In a while.

Sir Paco, aren't you gonna run
for mayor again?

I'm not. I'm done with politics.

I'm gonna dedicate my time
in managing the ranch.

The ranch profited
a lot recently,

so I'm arranging the transfer
of papers to everyone.

Ah, Sir Paco, that's great news.

My kid is going to college soon.

That would help pay
for her tuition.

- So thank you.
- Good to know.

But, Mr. Allan,
that's not all of it.

Our proposal to put up
a hospital here in the ranch

has been approved.

Soon, we won't have to travel
far to get medical attention.

Sir Paco,
I'm at a loss for words.

Thank you so much.

You just made this fiesta
even better.

No, Mr. Allan, you're wrong.

We should be thanking you,
all of you.

In spite of everything
that happened to us,

to our family,

you're still here supporting us.

Come on,
let's get this party started.

It's time to eat.
Proceed to the dining room.

Go ahead.

Cherry would be so happy
once she hears about the news.

I hope so. I really do.

Go on. Time to eat.

I'm sure you're gonna hear
from her soon.

- I'm going ahead. Thank you.
- Sure.

[SEB] Paco.

Seb.

This is Mia
from Weekly News Live.

They're a news web channel.

Please come in.

- Hi, I'm Mia.
- I'm Paco.

I was hoping
I could feature your ranch

as part of the sustainable
ranching community.

Well, ma'am, actually,
it wasn't our idea.

Someone came up with the idea
a long time ago.

We just expanded it.

Who did?

Can I have a picture of you
and your brothers?

- Sure. Let's go.
- Sure.

- You don't like it?
- [PACO SIGHS]

It's fine. You're the star
when it comes to photo shoots.

[CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING]

[CALM MUSIC PLAYING]

Great. Thank you, ma'am.

[MIA OVER VIDEO] The Estrellas
put up a cooperative

for the workers in the ranch.

They also have
a livelihood center,

a training center, a school,

and next year,
they're opening a hospital.

[PACO OVER VIDEO]
That's right, ma'am.

Uh, we use the profits
from the ranch

to build and maintain
our establishments.

- [GASPS]
- He's handsome, grandma.

You sneaky girl. You scared me.

Dear, who were you
calling handsome?

Is the guy
Grandma Ebs was watching.

Estrella.

I just came across it.
It was on the news.

[SIGHS]

Estrella. What a beautiful name.

Unlike ours. Magwayen is lame.

[SNORTS]

Do you know them?

What?

The Estrellas. Do you know them?

No.

Come here.

[CALM MUSIC PLAYING]

- Good morning, sir.
- Come in.

Take a seat.

Have you found them?

Yes, I have, sir.

Where does Cherry live?

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[MALAYA] Listen to me, okay?

A for "apple", not "epol".

B for "bear".

C for "car".

D for "dog".

E for "egg".

F for "fish".

- Hi, dear!
- Mama!

[CHERRY] Have you been
a good girl?

I have a surprise for you.

Wow, it's so pretty.

[CHERRY] Now, what do you say
when I give you something?

Thank you, Mama.

[CHUCKLES]

Come on,
let's keep your toys away.

Let's go.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MALAYA] There.
Now you look pretty.

Just like me.

Hi.

[PACO] Hello.

How old are you?

Um, six.

I'm six years old.

You're six years old?

My mama told me
I shouldn't talk to strangers.

Your mama is right.

- But I'm--
- [MALAYA] I know you.

You're an Estrella, right?

Correct.

I'm Paco Estrella.

How come you know me?

Did your mama tell you about me?

No. I saw you in a video
on Grandma Ebs' phone.

You mean, Aunt Ebs?

You're rich, right?

Can you give me some money?

What? [LAUGHS]

Why are you laughing?
I'm serious.

Give me money.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[BREATHES HEAVILY]

What's your… [SNIFFLES]

What's your name?

Malaya! Who are you
talking to this time?

Oh, my God!

Ms. Ebs.

Paco.

How are you?

Uh…

Is Malaya my daughter?

Ask her yourself.

We have a daughter.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

Every time I remember
what you did to me,

my whole body trembles in fear.

I hope you let me make it up
to my daughter.

I hope you let me be
a father to her.

Malaya doesn't know who you are.

And we don't need you
in our lives.

Cherry! Cherry.

- Get inside the bus.
- Okay.

Come on. Give that to me.

Aren't you ever
gonna forgive me?

I don't know.
