 It tells the story of Sam played by Jeric Gonzales, a recovering drug addict who returns to his community after receiving treatment in a rehabilitation center. Amidst his efforts to change and start anew, Sam is still subjected to public scrutiny and prejudices.

Hosted by Sen. Manny Pacquiao, witness Sam’s battle as a recovering drug addict in Stories for the Soul today, after Dear Uge, on GMA.
