The movie started with a rushing tired Sarah played by Sharon Cuneta leaving her daytime job as an Elementary English teacher for a night vocational class to become a caregiver. Meron brief scenes sa training class si Sarah and one of her instructors is a Waya Council member (yung namatay na laging kaaway ni lady elle noon). There was also a scene of Sarah and her colleagues during lunch discussing her life sa PI and her future sa London. There were quite a few jokes about Sarah “going to punas-punas the puwet.” Sarah eventually sold her house leaving her young son Paulo, played by John Manalo, bitter and more rebellious. Paulo would be looked after her paternal grandmother which was portrayed by Boots Anson-Roa. Isang scene lang siya sa movie pero you could already sense na she was a sweet and loving grandmother and mother.
The story moved along sa despedida (spellcheck please) party ni Sarah sa Manila with her side of the family. There you get a sense of her life and who she is as a daughter and a sister. Her mother (don’t know the actress’ name) is distraught about Sarah’s choice to follow her husband. This of course is natural sa mga Filipino parents when it comes to their children leaving the nest let alone the country. Mickey Feriols plays the obedient and caring daughter who mainly took care of their senile grandmother. Lola was played by the veteran actress Anita Linda. She played the elder matriarch who constantly needed caring that brought tears to Sarah’s eyes. This was a good indication of how compassionate Sarah really was.
