[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

So, if I ask you anything,

would you tell me the truth?

What truth?

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

About her.

What about her?

I want to know
where she's from,

how she was adopted,

and how your family
took her in.

What was it like
growing up with her?



Anything.

[NIMFA] Ma'am, sir.

Maybe you'd like to
buy some snacks.

Here, for your girlfriend.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

You can try them for free.

[BECCA] What's this?

It's carmelado.

It tastes good.

- You want some?
- Thanks, ma'am.

Do you guys make this?

Yes, ma'am.

We have a souvenir center.

[NILA] We haven't seen you
in so long, Sir Dave!



So you came home
to attend Cherry's wedding.

We've missed you so much.

Is she your girlfriend?

Uh, yes, she is.

I'm Becca.

What a pretty lady.

Sir Dave, take a look around.

The livelihood center
you and Cherry Red built

- has become successful.
- [CHERRY] Miss Nila!

- Has the delivery arrived?
- Speak of the devil!

It's all thanks to Cherry Red.

She worked hard
to build all of this.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

- We can finally eat.
- Dig in!

- Try it.
- Oh my!

[NIMFA] They're so sweet!
Oh my gosh!

- Come on.
- [BELEN] Nimfa, be quiet!

She's even feeding him!

I wish I had someone like that.

- Is that a roasted cow?!
- [BECCA] That's so huge.

Well, they just got married.

- Sir Paco!
- Congrats, Sir Paco!

- Sir, congrats!
- Congrats, sir!

Just because your favorite
Estrella brother came back,

you didn't wait for me?

Hey, I'm just kidding.

- Come on! Let's eat!
- Gosh, I was scared. Let's go!

- There's lots of food.
- Come on, everyone!

- I love that!
- Let's dig in!

[PACO] One little piece
for my wife, please.

There. Thanks.
You have to try this.

- Gosh, look at them!
- It's good.

- Sir Paco's so sweet!
- I'm so envious!

- It's good, right?
- Yeah.

[NIMFA] Oh, there it is.
Let's try it.

- [CHUCKLES]
- [WOMAN] Can you feed me too?

[PACO] She wants another piece.

I'm just kidding, love.

- [WOMAN] I know, right?
- There we go!

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

I just didn't expect it.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

- [PACO] You do it yourself?
- [CHERRY] Mm-hmm. It's easy.

Babe?

Babe, let's go.

Huh?

- Why?
- I'm sleepy.

- Let's go home.
- What?

[GLOOMY MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

Pa.

You okay?

Is there a problem?

[SIGHS] It's nothing.

Just the usual problems.

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

[ROY] Sir Drew.

Cherry's father is looking
for Don Freddie.

Why?

He said he wants to speak
with Don Freddie in private.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[PANICKED BREATHING]

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE] Mayor.

- Oh, morning.
- Morning.

What brings you here?

I just talked to your dad.

This early?

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

We talked about
something important.

About what?

It would be best if you
asked him yourself.

I'll go now.

Pa, I saw the mayor
outside the house.

He said I should ask you
why he came.

We just had
something to discuss.

Don't worry about it.

Pa.

What's going on?

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

- What's wrong?
- [CLICKS TONGUE]

Pa.

It's about business.

About Cuatro?

No. It's something else.

Then what is it?

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

I'll just tell you
when everything's clear.

What business are you
talking about, Pa?

[SIGHS]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Paco.

Do you know what Papa
is talking about?

He doesn't know anything.

About what, Pa?

I know everything about Cuatro.

Are you sure?

Pa, what is Dave talking about?

You two are so annoying.

Pa?

Why don't you know anything?

This seems like a big problem.

How would I know?
I can't read minds.

How is it my fault?

You know, Dave,

for someone who was
gone for so long,

you shouldn't be bossing
people around here.

I'm not bossing anyone around.

Then what's your problem?

[LOUD THUD]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

- Pa!
- Pa!

- [MAN] Sir! Sir!
- Pa?

[PANICKED BREATHING]

- Pa! Pa!
- Pa!

What happened to him?!

We just saw him
lying on the ground.

- What?!
- Hold his head.

- [PANICKED BREATHING]
- [DAVE] Papa?

- Call an ambulance. Hurry up!
- Alright, sir.

Pa!

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DOCTOR] The cardiac arrest
cut off the oxygen supply

to your father's brain.

That's why he is
in a state of coma.

We call it hypoxia.

[EKG BEEPING]

Cherry and I will
take care of Papa.

I know you're all busy

and we have to continue
with our lives.

That's what Papa
would want us to do.

Becca and I have decided…

…to postpone our departure.

We're staying.

[GENTLE MUSIC PLAYING]

[EKG BEEPING]

[GENTLE MUSIC CONTINUES]

You and Aunt Carol
are the reasons why

I never felt like an orphan.

Your sons will be devastated
if you stop fighting.

So, please keep fighting.

We're here for you, Pa.

- [GENTLE MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [BEEPING CONTINUES]

I have something important
to tell you.

- [GENTLE MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [BEEPING CONTINUES]

It was almost a year ago
when Sir Freddie set a meeting

with people I didn't recognize.

Um, I didn't feel it was
my place to ask him about it.

Uh…

Do you have a way
of contacting them?

I have their number, sir.
I'll send it to you.

Yes. Yes, please.

- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]
- [PHONE CHIMES]

Okay, thank you.

Come on, come on.

[VOICE PROMPT] The subscriber
cannot be reached.

Please try again later.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm so sorry to hear
about your father.

Mayor, what's going on?

[SIGHS] Your father got involved
in a big business operation.

Business? What business?

Transportation.

Transportation?

How did Papa get involved
in a transportation business?

A businessman came to him
with a proposal.

The deal was,

if your father would
invest in ferries,

your products could be
transported to other areas

much faster.

I only found out when he told me
about his plan at city hall.

I didn't question it since he'd
been a businessman for so long.

But it turns out, that
businessman was a scammer.

What?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PHONE RINGING]

Excuse me, Mayor.

Love?

Uh…

The doctors said…

…the medicines are the only
things keeping him alive.

He's not getting any better.

And they don't think
he'll ever recover.

So, now…

We need to face the most
difficult question.

[PACO] Which is?

You four need to decide

if you still want to
keep Papa on life support.

That's your difficult question?

What's so difficult about that?

We will keep him alive
until he recovers.

That's what we'll do.

He can no longer fight.

We're just putting him
through more pain.

Maybe it's time to
allow Papa to rest.

Dave, I'm not killing Papa,
if that's what you're saying!

It's not like that, Seb!

Let's be real.

Do you really believe
Papa will recover

and go back to
how he used to live?

Look, as the eldest--

No, Dave.

It doesn't matter
if you're the eldest.

You're all Papa's sons,

so you'll all get to decide.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I don't know
how much money was lost.

But for Papa to end up
like that…

It must have been
a huge loss.

Love…

Let's just think of
Papa for now.

Don't worry about the money.

You can earn it back
through the farm.

For sure,
this will also affect…

…Cuatro Estrella's operations.

We'll get through this, okay?

Don't worry too much.

Well, this is great.

Dave was only supposed to
attend your wedding,

but it looks like he'll be
staying here indefinitely.

It's a good thing Dave came back
before all of this happened.

But even if he and Drew
had returned to America,

he would definitely
fly back here

for his family's emergency.

But still…

Am I supposed to return to
America without him?

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

That's up to you.

You're free to leave if you
don't like it here anymore.

I'm sure Dave will understand.

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

We need to decide…

…what we'll do about Papa.

Let's just end
his suffering, Paco.

[SEB] What?

Bro, that's messed up!

That's my opinion.
Can't you respect it?

[SCOFFS]

Respect your opinion?

He's our dad, Drew.
How could you easily say that?

Seb…

[DREW] Look,

assuming Papa wakes up,

he'd be in a vegetative state.

Wouldn't that be
more difficult for him?

But at least
he'd stay alive!

That's better than
not doing anything

to help him fight
for his life!

We can definitely afford
his treatment.

Giving up isn't an option!

[DREW] But would anyone
take care of him?

You'll just hire a
private nurse anyway, right?

I'll take care of him!

My wife and I will
take care of him!

Paco and Cherry will help, too!

Fine. You can play
the good son, then!

Oh, I mean it!

At least I'm not like you
who did drugs!

- Seb!
- Seb, that's enough!

He's unbelievable, Dave!

You talk as if
Papa was a good dad to us.

When Mama died,

he just took care of
his livestock

instead of us!

And now,

you're demanding us
to take care of him

even though he'll only suffer?

So, you'd rather he die?!

Enough! That's enough!

Will you two stop fighting?!

We don't have to decide
on this matter immediately.

Let's think this through.

Drew.

Drew!

[PACO] Love.

Drew!

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Drew.

- Drew, please.
- I don't get you guys!

I understand where
you're coming from.

I respect your opinion.

You do?

Everyone thinks
I don't belong here.

You all see me as
a drug addict.

Nothing more.

You've no respect
for me at all!

No, Drew.

We love you.

We do.

Your brothers just have
different opinions.

But what Seb did was wrong.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

That bastard!

How can he talk like that,

when he's given us
nothing but problems?!

- Seb.
- Babe. Hey.

- He's still your brother.
- [EXHALES DEEPLY]

Calm down.

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

Seb…

Drew has the right…

…to voice out his opinion.

That's why we're here.

So we can come
to an understanding.

No.

He's just running away
from his responsibilities.

He doesn't care about Papa!

All he cares about
is his inheritance.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Well, Paco?

Don't tell me
you're taking Drew's side.

No, Seb.

But Drew still has
the right to talk.

[SEB] Okay.

Let's go.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PACO SIGHS HEAVILY]

Love?

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

I don't want Papa
to suffer anymore.

The longer he stays like this,

the more he'll suffer.

Right, love?

Maybe…

No.

We'll keep trying.

We'll keep fighting
to save Papa's life.

If that's what you want,
I'll support you.

I'll always be by your side.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EKG BEEPING]

Thank you so much for
taking care of me, Papa.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLES]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DARK MUSIC PLAYING]

[DAVE] He has to
turn himself in.

[FREDDIE] We will not
admit anything.

No one else can know
about this.

[DARK MUSIC CONTINUES]

[HORSE NEIGHING LOW]

About the money Papa lost…

I don't think we can still
do anything about it.

We just need to make sure

Cuatro Estrella will
stay afloat.

Papa made that decision.

I objected to it,

but he went through
with it anyway.

Just what happened, anyway?

So much has changed here.

Well, you'd know
if you hadn't left.

But you did.

Paco…

You know that Drew
needed me in America.

Hmm.

Regardless, you wanted to leave.

- What's your problem?!
- You!

You're giving me
that accusing tone

as if I'm not doing
anything here!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[CLICKS TONGUE]

[BECCA] I've prepared lunch.

Come, let's eat.
Gosh, you're soaking wet.

- Paco! Join us.
- Thank you.

Come, please.

Uh, no, thank you.

I need to go to the hospital.
Cherry's waiting.

Come on, just have some juice.

You're too stressed out.
You might get sick.

Please.

Come.

You know,
I could get used to this.

It seems you're starting
to enjoy it here.

Yeah, of course.

Everything's fresh.

Fresh air, fresh food…

Well, I just haven't learned
Cherry's recipes yet,

but I am a fast learner.

- Mm.
- [CHUCKLES]

Um…

If you want,

I can ask Cherry to teach you.

- Really?
- Mm-hmm.

Thanks.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Anyway, Cherry's really
something else, huh?

She has a way
with you brothers.

Like, she can command you.

I mean, you all really
listen to her.

Well, she is part of the family.

[BECCA] Yeah. Of course.
She's Paco's wife.

And besides that, she's been
your helper for so long.

- She was never a helper here.
- We never treated her like one.

Uh… Chill.

I meant, she helps you
and assists you.

I didn't say that
she was your maid.

So…

Uh, try this one.

It's good, too.
You haven't tasted it yet.

Ma'am! The patient is…!

What's wrong?

[SOBBING]

Papa!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Doc…

How is he?

We've been trying
for 45 minutes.

We've already administered
five adrenaline shots to him.

Still no response.

I'm sorry to say…

your father is brain-dead.

- Doc, please--
- We'll stop it here, Doc.

What?

What do you mean
we'll stop it here?

Look, we did what we could.

Okay? We tried.

We tried.

Papa is not fighting anymore.

He's brain-dead now.

Do you understand that?

He's brain-dead now, Paco.

[SORROWFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Doc, we'll stop it here.

Pull the plug.

[SORROWFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[WAILS]

[SOBBING]

[CHERRY AND PACO SOBBING]

[PACO SCREAMS]

[CHERRY SOBS]

[SORROWFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[FREDDIE] I'd always wonder,

what would happen to them
when I'm gone?

Will they still
love each other?

Or will they turn against
each other?

Promise me, Cherry,

that you'll look after my sons
when I'm gone.

I want them to keep
loving each other.

I want them to continue
protecting each other.

[CHERRY] Yes, Papa.

I promise.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[DAVE BREATHING SHAKILY]
Mister Panyong…

[FREDDIE] If you really care
about this family,

about me and your brothers…

you'll keep your mouth shut.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[MOROSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MAN LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY]

Let's go.

[LAUGHTER CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[LAUGHING]

[MAN] Home! Go home!

[PLASTIC BOTTLES CRACKLING]

Go! Go!

Huh?

Go! Go home!

[MAN LAUGHING]

Hey.

Everything okay?

- [LAUGHTER CONTINUES]
- [PLASTIC BOTTLES CRACKLING]

Y-Yeah, I'm fine.

Cherry.

[LAUGHTER CONTINUES]

I hope everything's
okay with you.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm still hoping you and Paco
would patch things up.

Well, I didn't do
anything wrong.

So, what's your plan
now that Papa's gone?

Are you and Becca
going to stay here?

Cherry, the company's
facing a huge problem.

It looks like we'll have
to stay here longer.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE] Look, Pa.

I know Drew said
it was an accident,

but he has to turn himself in.

Let's go with him
to the police station.

We're not going to do that.

Mister Panyong deserves justice!

[FREDDIE] You want
your brother to rot in jail?!

This will be a huge scandal.

Not just for Drew,
but for our whole family

and our business!

So, Dave…

You'll keep your mouth shut.
Did you hear me?

[DAVE] Pa, I love Cherry.

[FREDDIE] Choose, then:
Cherry or Drew?

[BECCA] Dave!

[TIRES SCREECH]

[DAVE BREATHING HEAVILY]

- [EXHALES SHARPLY]
- [PANTING]

What the heck?!

[BOTH BREATHING HEAVILY]

- Have some juice.
- Thanks.

[MAN] My condolences.

[JIM] My condolences again.

- I'll go now.
- Thank you.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Your drink.

By the way, our landlady
sent me an email.

She said there's a water leak
in our apartment.

I told her to just
have it fixed, and--

Becca.

My father just died.

I'm sorry.

[CHERRY] Drew, what are you
doing here all by yourself?

[DREW] Can I leave for a while?

[CHERRY] Where are you going?

My friends invited me out
to play darts.

The mood here is too heavy.
I don't feel comfortable.

Are you okay?

Do you need
someone to talk to?

Yeah, I'm fine.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Just tell them
I stepped out for a bit

in case they go
looking for me.

Alright, but come back
right away.

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PACO] I promise you all

that business operations
will continue

and you won't lose your jobs.

Nothing's going to change.

Sir, thank you so much.

You're really kind to us, sir.

Uh, sir, here's some money
from all of us.

It's our way of expressing
our gratitude.

I can't…

I can't accept that.

Please take it, sir.

[SIGHS LOUDLY]

Thank you.

We're happy to help, sir.

Thanks, sir.

[CRYING]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

Your sons are so adorable.

You know,
when they were still kids,

they always seemed
happy together.

But, I worry about them.

Why?

I'd always wonder,

what would happen to them
when I'm gone?

Will they still
love each other?

Or will they turn against
each other?

I'm sure they will
love each other,

just like they always have.

They may fight at times,

but after a while,

they'd eventually make up.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Cherry, promise me.

When I'm gone--

Please don't say such things.

When I'm gone,

please look after my sons.

I want them to keep
loving each other.

I want them to continue
protecting each other.

Yes, Papa.

I promise.

[CRYING]

Love?

Oh. [SNIFFLES]

I'm sorry. There are too
many visitors outside, and--

Shh. It's okay.

It's okay to cry, love.

[SOBBING]

I know Papa was important
to you, too.

He was like a father to you.

It's okay.

[CRYING]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Why did you punish me, Pa?

Why, Pa?

Why am I the one

who has to make sacrifices
for the family?

[SOBBING]
I've been suffering every day.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]
Meanwhile, you…

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

You suddenly left me.

[BOTTLE CLINKS]

[HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]

You're so unfair, Pa!

You're so unfair, Pa.
You're so unfair!

[WHISPERING]
You're so unfair, Pa.

[SNIFFLES] You're so unfair, Pa.

I can't do this anymore.

I don't want to carry
this burden anymore.

[VOICE BREAKING]
I'm done.

I don't want this anymore.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

Dave?

Why me, Pa?

- Dave!
- I can't do this anymore.

- Dave! Dave?
- I can't.

Dave, what's wrong?

- [BECCA BREATHING HEAVILY]
- I don't want this anymore.

[WHIMPERS]
I don't want this anymore.

Calm down, Dave.

- Calm down. I'm here.
- I'm done.

- [BREATHING HEAVILY]
- I'm here. I'm here.

Dave, I'm here.

I want to entrust
the entire ranch…

…to just one person.

Dave.

You are absolutely…

- …shameless!
- Paco!

You wrongly accused me of
not protecting Papa's money,

and now, you're taking
what's left of it?!

Papa's got you trapped.

Now that Papa's gone,

it's going to be my call

on what I do with our secret.

He didn't just give me
a house.

He gave me a new family

who filled the places
of those I lost.

That's why I promise

to love this family
for as long as I live.

I'd kill for this family.

Papa wasn't perfect.

He covered up for Drew.

Dave, stop.

Drew killed Mister Panyong.

- Che-- Cherry!
- [BECCA SCREAMS]

- No! Drew!
- Cherry! Cherry!
