Each year, the anthology replaces the noontime show's regular programming in observance of the solemnity of Holy Week. Standalone episodes of short dramas are shown from Holy Monday to Holy Wednesday, with each episode having different characters, story, and director.
It is topbilled by Vic Sotto, Pia Guanio, and BJ Forbes. Supporting cast includes Jimmy Santos, Keempee de Leon, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Sugar Mercado and Mr. Pogi 2006 grand winner Edgar Allan Guzman.
The episode is written and directed by Bibeth Orteza. She also directed the Tuesday episode titled "Binhi sa Matabang Lupa".
At home, Amanda (Pia Guanio) flips through the happy moments of their family photo album, but flashbacks contrarily show that her husband, Rey Valdez (Vic Sotto), has been a domineering and temperamental man throughout their marriage. Amanda finally confronts her husband. She decides to leave him and to bring their son Junie (BJ Forbes) with her.
Amanda's brother, Monchit (Keempee de Leon) arrives at the house to pick them up. While waiting, Monchit is confronted by Rey about the debts that he owed to him, but they develop a compromise that his debts will be forgiven if Monchit convinces her sister not to leave the house. Rey also convinces his driver Johnny (Jimmy Santos) to stall the family's departure.
Amanda's vehicle stalls which forces the family to return to the house. To further delay their departure, Monchit devises a plan by acting sick. With everyone back at the house, Rey begins to develop a closer relationship with his son. Eventually, Amanda discovers that his brother is faking his illness. She confronts his brother.
Meanwhile, Johnny gets a visit from what seems to be his friend Bino (Wally Bayola) and his nephew Jun (Edgar Allan Guzman). Johnny hands over an envelope which contains financial support from Rey to Bino's nephew. Jun informs Johnny that he would like Rey to come to his upcoming graduation, revealing that Jun is Rey's son from another mother. Rey expresses his disinterest of attending the graduation.
Later, Johnny meets up again with Bino and Jun in front of the house to give them additional money from his own pocket. Jun asks Johnny if his father has agreed to attend the graduation. Rey overhears their conversation and confronts them. He reveals that Jun's mother cheated on him, and his mother's lover is actually his real father. Rey further confesses that his bitter character comes from a similar experience from his past involving his parents. Still, everyone decides to leave him, except Junie who felt pity for his father.
Rey asks Amanda for forgiveness after realizing his mistakes. She still decides to leave him, but promises that she will return to them once he's fully healed from his past. They kiss for the last time.
