Kung Paano Hinihintay ang Dapithapon Movie Plot Summary
In the movie, Perla Bautista plays Teresa, Menggie Cobarrubias as Celso, and Dante Rivero as Bene. Teresa and Celso have been living together for 27 years as an unmarried couple, while Bene is Teresa’s legal husband. But because of Bene’s mistake in the past, Teresa left him and lived with Celso. From time to time, Celso’s daughter Marissa (Che Ramos) and Tere’s son Chito (Romnick Sarmenta) visit them.
One day, Bene called Teresa and asked help from her after he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He also asked for forgiveness for all the wrongdoings he has done to her in the past.
