Thelma: Life is a Race, Run to Win

Life is fast-paced -- everything moves swiftly at the beat of the clock. Run fast, faster than your limit. You may stumble along the way but get up, shake off the dirt and run again. You may opt to slow down a bit, but never ever stop running towards the end of your goal.

Thelma (Maja Salvador) tells us an inspiring story of a sportive barrio girl who loves running which serves as an outlet for her misfortunes in life. She's an unwanted daughter of her father (John Arcilla) who dreamed of a son as first-born. Though she secretly envy her smart younger sister (Eliza Pineda), she loves her as a sister and as a bestfriend.
