Alex grows up in a happy and complete family. Having a responsible father, Arnel, and a loving mother, Shirley, makes her feel contented. Everything seems so right until Alex learns that Arnel is using illegal drugs. Shortly after, Shirley abandons them and lives with another man making Arnel’s life miserable. He stops working. He has neglected his children for thinking of Shirley too much. Anger fills Alex’s heart for her father because she thinks that it’s his father’s fault why their mother left them. By that time, it’s their grandparents who attend to the needs of Alex and her three other siblings namely JR, Mako and Alu. In time, before his children also leave him, Arnel realizes that he still has them, that they need him. Knowing that he has neglected them, he really makes time for Alex, JR, Mako and Alu. Arnel does everything for his kids and eventually, Alex is able to forgive him and accept him as his father again. Somehow, Alex feels contentment and happiness even without a mother. For her, Arnel is more than enough. But Alex makes a promise that she will really study hard and will excel in school in order to have a successful life. She truly wants to prove to Shirley that she can still succeed without her. Time passes, through the help of Arnel and her grandparents, Alex is able to finish college. She starts working. One day, Alex learns that her mother is sick and needs financial assistance. She does not help her because hatred is still in her heart. But Arnel talks to Alex.
