Barrio Maulap is the
symbol of my defeat. Mine and my mother’s. All of my painful memories
happened in that place. Engineer Dichavez, I heard from your kid that
you picked a fight again. To a policeman, no less. I didn’t pick a fight.
We were just arguing. Gregorio, must I always
worry about you? You even start fights
with your colleagues. They’re corrupt.
If they want to become rich, they should work for
a construction firm, not a government agency. But please don’t meddle
in other people’s business. Love, I can’t stand by
while others are oppressed. That’s admirable, Gregorio,
if you were still young. You have a family now. What will happen to me and
Teresa if you get hurt? What will happen to me and
Teresa if you get hurt? Dad, I heard Mom saying that
you shouldn’t pick fights to help other people. Dear, your mother is always
thinking of the worst. I’m scared, too. Why? I’m your idol, right? That’s right. Always remember that
if you help people, it comes back to you. Once you’re the one in need,
people will come to your aid. Dad, please don’t do it again. Think of me and Mom.
Do it for me. Okay, if you insist. Promise? Promise. Let go of me! Ow! That hurts! [WOMAN GRUNTING] Hey, that’s not
how you treat women! Stay out of this. Well then, you should
treat women properly. I wanted to keep my promise, but I couldn’t stand by
and watch. They ganged up on me. They said I killed a drunk,
defenseless man. The woman I was protecting
wouldn’t defend me. She’s scared of
the man’s relatives. I told you to stay out
of people’s business. Now, you’re all alone. Stay out of trouble. Keep your head down. Don’t be a hero,
so they’ll let you out early. We need you. – Here’s your laundry.
– You call this clean? – It’s clean, boss.
– What did you say?! – Come here!
– No! Help me! Go easy on the guy.
He’s sick. Who said you could butt in?! Let go of me! Stay out of this! – Stop it!
– He’s going to kill me! You sick bastard.
You want to kill again, huh?! What happened? The guards caught me
holding a shiv. It’s not mine. I grabbed it while saving
an inmate from getting killed. They added it to my charges.
I’ll be in here for a while. Are you that intent
on being a hero? You don’t love us. You only love yourself. Lita… Lita. Rice cakes! Mom. Have some coffee. Thank you, dear. Not long after, my mother got sick because of how difficult
our life was. Teresa had to take care
of her mother on her own. She was too young to be
put in that situation. He should’ve been there. To protect us. But he wasn’t. He chose to protect
other people before us. Mister Apol, I’m begging you. I need money for
my mom’s medicine. I need money for
my mom’s medicine. Mister Apol, I’m begging you. I’m sorry, Teresa. Penoy! Balut! – I’ll have one.
– Okay. – Is it good?
– Yeah! – I’ll bring more tomorrow.
– Thank you. Time to drink your medicine. Mom? Mom. Mom? Mom! I wasn’t there
while Lita was dying. When my mother passed away, I knew I was all alone in life. I only had myself to rely on. As I was leaving that place, I swore to myself I would never return
to Barrio Maulap.
