"Anak" (Filipino for child or more accurately my son or my daughter) is a Tagalog song written by Filipino folk-singer Freddie Aguilar. It was a finalist for the inaugural 1977 Metropop Song Festival held in Manila. It has been translated to over a hundred local and international languages. In 2000, a movie of the same name was created. Its plot was inspired by the lyrics of the song, which speak of Filipino family values.
