As she stands in court, a young woman must make a big decision on which side to take after her mother killed her abusive father in the second 4th anniversary episode of the longest-running legal drama in the country, “Ipaglaban Mo.”
Elaine’s family is suffering under the cruelty of her abusive father, Gardo (Jeric Raval), a drunk, gambler, and womanizer. Not only that, he also regularly beats up her mother, Berna (Isay Alvarez).
Her mother, despite Elaine’s encouragement, refuses to leave her father because she still believes he will change. Until one night, after an intense argument, Berna snaps and kills her husband and even enlists Elaine’s help to get rid of the body.
Will Elaine tell the truth or will she give the justice her father still deserves?
“Ipaglaban Mo” has been educating viewers about their rights for four years now since it started airing on ABS-CBN. The show even went out of its way of offering free legal advice to people every week via ABS-CBN’s Tulong Center.
Aside from the fourth year on air of its relaunch on ABS-CBN, “Ipaglaban Mo” also celebrates its 30th year as the longest-running legal drama on Philippine television.
Do not miss the “Panganay” episode of “Ipaglaban Mo,” directed by Ian Lorenos, this Saturday (June 2) after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN.
