Optimum star Claudine Barretto returns to “MMK” and topbills a provocative story that tackles both rape and incest this Saturday (Oct 24).
Leni (Claudine) was only five years old when her very own father Ramon (Gardo Versoza) raped her. He was proven guilty of the crime and got convicted. Six years after, however, Ramon obtained pardon and went back home, leaving Leni worried for the safety of her younger sister Aileen (Mika Dela Cruz).
Just as she suspected, Ramon did start doing lascivious acts on the innocent 17-year-old girl that eventually led to rape. Aileen, feeling very helpless, ran away and kept the shattering experience all to herself.
When Leni found out about what happened, she bravely searched for Aileen. Fate found a way for them to be back in each other’s arms until another difficult ordeal unfolded once more— Aileen got impregnated by her own father.
How will Aileen take this news? How will this affect Leni, who blames herself for not being courageous enough to protect her sister?
