MANILA, Philippines - Comedienne Pokwang's first solo movie, "A Mother's Story", was graded "A" by the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB).

"A Mother's Story", is The Filipino Channel’s latest movie offering to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) around the world.

The film revolves around the story of Medy, played by Pokwang, a make-up artist who dares to make a life in the

United States as an illegal immigrant in exchange for saving the life of her infant daughter.

It focuses on the everyday sacrifices that millions of Filipino parents make as they leave their homes to find jobs overseas.

In an earlier report, Pokwang said she could sincerely relate to her character in the film because she is a former OFW herself.

“Totoong-totoo ‘yung emotions na naibigay ko talaga. Kasi alam ko ‘yung naramdaman ng mga nanay, especially yung mga magulang na nawalay sa mga anak,” she said.

“A Mother’s Story” is set to hit theaters on January 12, 2012.
