Tony Labrusca gets possessed with obsession for childhood friend Barbie Imperial, and finds himself committing a crime of passion in this Saturday’s (May 4) in Ipaglaban Mo.
Mitch (Barbie) works at an events place and only goes home to their province to be with her father Abner (Gerald Madrid) when she’s not busy with work. Shen she isn’t around, her childhood neighbor and former suitor Jerome (Tony) looks after their house and Abner.
Upon her return to the province, Jerome tries to woo her once more, but she immediately rejects him as she is already in a relationship with Nathan Santos (Elmo Magalona) and whom she plans to marry. When Jerome learns this, he threatens to kill her.
Mitch returns to Manila and soon feels she is being followed around. As she discovers that Jerome has been living in a room beside hers, she tells Nathan, who then assures her of her safety. Mitch’s peace of mind soon turns into a nightmare, when one night, Jerome sees the two of them talking, and kills Nathan.
As the investigation of the crime happens, Jerome is discovered to have already killed two in the past.
Will proper justice be served in Nathan’s death? How will our legal system deal with repeat offenders and protect victims like Mitch?
