An inspiring story of a teacher who falls victim to human trafficking but strives to live and survive for her family will move viewers this Saturday (June 1) on “MMK.”
Nena (Irma Adlawan) is admired in her community for her dedication as a teacher for 32 years. She eventually decides to retire and put up her own business to spend more time with her family.
However, her dream of having a better life is instantly taken away after her business partner takes all the money she has. On the verge of giving up, she finds a high paying job as a caregiver in the US, hoping to regain everything she lost.
But things do not go as planned as Nena learns that the person who recruits her is a human trafficker and forces her to work as a house help for an abusive Filipino family. She gets maltreated, is underpaid, and even made to sleep with the dogs by her employers, putting her in constant misery.
Determined to escape her horrible situation, she then meets a young American boy who she hopes could be her way to finally break free from her ill-fated life.
How will Nena survive the life she is in?
