Schizophenic Father

Oct 29, 2016

Victor (30) desires a happy and simple life for his family. A determined and religious provider, he puts up a small bakery in Iba, Zambales with his wife, Marites (29). Seeing Victor provide the needs and wants of their family, Marites draws strength from his husband. Soon, Victor comes across and helps a homeless old lady, Aling Maring (60’s) with her drug addict son Ben (20’s) who seek food and shelter from him. He accepts them like family, but conflict arises in their household when the two suddenly take his entire income and ran away. Feeling betrayed, Victor suffers from depression and later turns his attention to gambling, distressing Marites and their children. The tables completely turn when Victor starts to become inscrutable as he experiences delusions and hallucinations – from being unexpectedly violent to his eldest son Carlo (7), to digging corpses, and burying saint figurines on spur of moment. All of these agonize Marites, while their children experience bullying in school due to Victor’s condition. Marites decides to have Victor checked through folk healers and professional doctors but to no avail. Conflicted by these horrors, she then leaves Victor in a mental facility and starts anew with their children. Just when Marites loses hope, she comes across Victor who proves that he can still provide for their family despite his continuing disorder. In the end, Marites still accepts Victor and promises to give back to her husband who continues to battle with schizophrenia.
