The film, directed by Theodore Boborol, features Ruiz playing a devoted yet penniless grandmother who takes care of her autistic child, losing everything in the process.

For her role, Ruiz took home the Best Actress trophy in the awards night of the 2019 Cinemalaya Film Festival.

It was not her first award under Cinemalaya, though. Ruiz also won the award for Best Supporting Actress in the 2013 edition of the film festival, appearing in film entry Ekstra starring Vilma Santos.

Apart from Ruiz, Iska also stars Soliman Cruz, Ricky Rivero, Jonic Magno, RK Bagatsing, Ana Abad Santos, and Beauty Gonzalez, among others.
