Minda, a 45-year-old mother devoted to her sick child, also has a dream for herself: to compete and hopefully win My Amazing Mama, a popular and lucrative television game show in the Philippines. But, in a country where thousands of people rely on television game shows to earn money, Minda will have to overcome a good many obstacles – some hilarious, some humiliatingly exploitative – just to get a chance at winning the daily cash prize. The show becomes the latest test of her fortitude and tenacity in the face of adversity, which earns her the adoration of everyone around her. A bold satire, which uses humour to explore the archetype of the “good mother” in a patriarchal society.
