Based on the novel by Mars Ravelo and serialized in Pilipino Komiks, Wanted: Perfect Mother is described as " light, heartwarming dramatic story for wholesome family entertainment." It tells of a couple, Dante (Dante Rivero) and Elsa (Liza Lorena) who hires a new governess, Carla (Boots Anson-Roa) to care for their four children (Gina Alajar, Ariosto Reyes, Jr., Arnold Gamboa and 4-year old Snooky, who was introduced here) . The governess quickly establishes rapport with the children--- and the husband--- creating rumors of an affair. Before things could go wrong, Carla decides to leave. Elsa dies in a car accident and the widower decides to marry again and getting a new mother to his children. Carla is the popular one among several choices, but the head servant (Caridad Sanchez) poisons the minds of the children against her. Lino Brocka's directorial debut--- Written by BGP
