They only wanted to have fun and smoked a small amount of a prohibited drug and little did they know it would completely destroy their lives.
In Sino Ang Maysala? Mea Culpa, best friends in law school—Juris (Bela Padilla), Drei (Tony Labrusca), Gaylord (Sandino Martin), Bogs (Ketchup Eusebio), Greco (Kit Thompson) and Lolita (Ivana Alawi)—who called themselves ‘Tropang Malakas’ treated each other like family. They all vowed to protect and always stand by each other no matter what happens. “Kasalanan ng isa, kasalanan ng lahat. Walang iwanan.” they said. They helped each other in difficult times and celebrated each other’s success.
Therefore, when almost all of them passed the bar exams, their group went to Baguio to celebrate. They enjoyed too much and eventually got high that led to a reckless joyride in the outskirts of Baguio. And, in a fleeting moment, they suddenly realized they had ran over someone. Alighting, they saw the dead body of a woman sprawling in the empty street. And a crying baby was also found not too far from the woman’s remains and they thought the child was hers. Juris decided to claim the baby as her own while the others buried the woman’s body by the roadside. Knowing that what happened could destroy their budding career as lawyers, ‘Tropang Malakas’ agreed to keep it as their dirty little secret.
However, as the proverb says, no secret would be left unexposed in the end. Even though Juris meant to take care of the child they found near the dead body, her decision started to doom all of their lives. When the child’s mother, Fina (Jodi Sta. Maria) traced them, their group’s promise to each other were broken. Bogs wanted to do the right thing and confess what he knows, but Juris won’t let that happen. So, she killed Bogs. Eventually, Greco and Lolita wanted to speak up about seeing the dead body of Fina’s mother inside the house of Drei’s mom. Juris ordered someone to kill the two. With Juris’ mental condition and the pressure of the truth coming out ruining their lives, their solid friendship tore into pieces.
Bogs and Lolita ended up dead. How will everything turn out for Juris, Drei, Gaylord and Greco? Don’t miss the answer on the heart-stopping finale of Sino Ang May Sala? Mea Culpa this Friday, August 9 on Primetime Bida.
Check out these five moments wherein the accident in Baguio became a life-changing tragic event for “Tropang Malakas”.
