Rona had been struggling to come out to her parents for so many years. She was quite nervous, but everything was worth it as her Filipina mom assured her after she came out that she had nothing against it and emphasized that what’s important was that she took care of herself.

Mad is a singer-songwriter, and he used this talent by writing a song about his sexuality and letting his mom listen to it in their car as her way of opening up. The scene ended with a hug and a leadoff to a meal.
