And jug­gles du­ties as mom and cop in 'MMK'

The Freeman - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Andi Ei­gen­mann por­trays a ded­i­cated po­lice of­fi­cer and mother who strug­gles to bal­ance her re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in this Satur­day’s ( Feb­ru­ary 20) episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya.”

Raised in a lower class fam­ily, a boy­ish Judy grows up idol­iz­ing her hard­work­ing par­ents, who are very sup­port­ive of her ed­u­ca­tion and her in­ter­est in taek­wondo. One day, Judy’s mother runs into a hold-up and gets in­jured, mark­ing the only time Judy sees her tough mother shed tears.

Want­ing to seek re­venge for her mother’s mishap, Judy takes up crim­i­nol­ogy in col­lege, where she meets the man who then cap­ti­vates her heart – Ed­mund ( Pa­trick Gar­cia).

After grad­u­at­ing from col­lege, Judy builds a fam­ily with Ed­mund and from then on would jug­gle her du­ties as a mother and a pub­lic ser­vant.

Un­til one night, Judy is tested when their one-yearold baby suf­fers from a high fever while she is on duty, and prom­ises to at­tend to her son as soon as she gets home. How­ever, on a bus on her way home, Judy runs into a rob­bery aboard the bus and is forced to stand up to foil the crime.

How will this in­ci­dent af­fect Judy’s re­la­tion­ship with Ed­mund, as well as their fam­ily?
