Mater Dolorosa Movie Plot
Gina Alajar plays the character Lourdes Lagrimas, a mother of four who succumbed to the call to take over the crime empire that her husband established before being gunned down. By Joseph’s (Cogie Domingo) dealership of car parts that are illegally sourced, Eli’s (Carlo Aquino) running of a gambling ring and involvement with drugs, and Fatima’s (Alessandra de Rossi) misuse of her power as a cop to protect their unlawful ways, Lourdes’ children contributed to the empire.
Their lives took a left turn when the mayor and his son entered the picture, interested to lord over the businesses the Lagrimas’ were leading. Lourdes is forced to contemplate on whether she should keep going or retire for good when just before New Year, a counterattack was launched against them that led to the demise of her youngest child, Benjamin (Felix Roco), whom she always tried to keep safe.
