The movie entitled "The Only Mother To You All" from 2008 is a Filipino comedy-drama that revolves around the lives of four women who are struggling with their personal problems and rely solely on their maid, Loida (AiAi Delas Alas), for guidance and support. Directed by Wenn Deramas and written by Mel Mendoza-Del Rosario, the movie stars AiAi Delas Alas, Eugene Domingo, Shaina Magdayao, and Iya Villania in the lead roles.

The story begins with Loida, a single mother, who works tirelessly as a house help for four different families. Despite being overworked and underpaid, Loida remains devoted to her job and takes care of her employers' children as if they were her own. Her life takes a turn when she meets a mysterious woman, Sabrina (Eugene Domingo), who claims to be her guardian angel and promises to fulfill her wish of becoming rich and famous in exchange for a favor.

As Loida struggles with her decision, she finds herself comforting and supporting the four young women who are dealing with their own issues. The first woman is Shiela (Shaina Magdayao), a teenage girl who is forced to cope with the responsibilities of motherhood after becoming pregnant out of wedlock. The second woman is Beverly (Iya Villania), a beautiful but insecure woman, who is constantly comparing herself to others and yearns for a perfect life. The third woman is Rhea (Gina Pareño), an ex-convict who is trying to reconnect with her estranged daughter. The fourth woman is Aida (Rufa Mae Quinto), a wealthy woman who is unhappily married and desperately searching for love and attention.

As Loida helps each of these women overcome their problems, she discovers that her true calling is not to become rich and famous but to be the mother figure that they all need. The film is a heartwarming tale of friendship, family, and the power of a mother's love to heal even the most broken souls.

The movie's themes of motherhood and the importance of family are conveyed through AiAi Delas Alas's spectacular performance as Loida, who is the perfect representation of a selfless mother who will do anything to make her children happy. Her ability to connect with the four women and their children shows the lengths that a true mother is willing to go to provide for her family.

Eugene Domingo's portrayal of Sabrina, the enigmatic guardian angel, adds an interesting layer to the story. Her character is a metaphor for the way people are often forced to make difficult choices and the price they pay for the decisions they make.

Shaina Magdayao, Iya Villania, Gina Pareño, and Rufa Mae Quinto also deliver standout performances as the four women who rely on Loida for guidance and support. Their characters are relatable, and their struggles are genuine. Each of them represents a unique aspect of motherhood and illustrates the different challenges that women face as they navigate through life.

Overall, "The Only Mother To You All" is a heartwarming and emotional film that explores the complexities of motherhood and the impact that a mother's love can have on those around her. The film's humor, drama, and heart make it a must-watch for anyone looking for a feel-good movie that touches the soul.
