night next to a rice paddy, is the son of Gorio and Maristela. Although being
bullied outside their home, Bekikang grows up in a happy and supportive
family. When Bekikang’s mother dies, his father takes on a new love in the
house named Anacleta who becomes Bekikang’s cross to bear. As Bekikang grows,
he never stops fighting the people who taunt him. One day, Bekikang meets

love blossoms between the two. Natalie is already pregnant when Bekikang
hears about the relationship between Natalie and Fortunato. Following the
birth of the child they named Potpot, Natalie decides to fulfill her dreams
of going to Japan. Natalie decides to leave Potpot to Fortunato who is also
planning of going abroad. Fortunato then seeks the help of Bekikang and
leaves Potpot to him with the promise of a monthly support. The promises
eventually get broken, but Bekikang continues to nurture the love for Potpot.
Withstanding the hardships of a single parent, Bekikang makes Potpot the
center of his world. Trying to give the child the most of what he can,
Bekikang works hard to give a happy home to Potpot. Few days following
Potpot’s seventh birthday, Bekikang sees Fortunato. Bekikang finds out that
Fortunato and Natalie are together again living in luxury and this time,
demanding for Potpot’s custody. With no legal power, Bekikang has to give up Potpot.
Potpot becomes depressed and decides to run away and look for Bekikang. Will

been an ideal parent for Potpot?
