“Ipaglaban Mo” continues its month-long third anniversary celebration and features the story of a deaf and mute person who is the sole witness to a murder in an episode topbilled by JC Santos and Sylvia Sanchez this Saturday (July 8) on ABS-CBN.
Karlo (JC Santos) has long been emotionally and even physically abused by the people around him because of his condition. What hurt him the most, however, was that his very own father was one of them. Thus, his only ally in his life was his mother Teresa (Sylvia Sanchez), who always stood by his side no matter what.
One day, while walking in the streets, Karlo saw how three men abducted and killed a helpless woman. How did Karlo tell the authorities what he witnessed? Did the court believe his testimonies?
Since “Ipaglaban Mo” premiered on ABS-CBN in 2014, the show has been consistently captivating viewers in its timeslot because of its timely and relevant stories that not only showcase Filipino values, but also inform viewers of their legal rights.
“Ipaglaban Mo” further strengthened its commitment to serve by offering free legal consultations to the public with Atty. Jose and Jopet Sison every week in ABS-CBN’s Tulong Center located in the ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City. Through this, the public will not only be guided on what to do next with regard to their case, but also feel empowered to fight for their rights.
It has also received awards from the 2016 PMPC Star Awards where it won the Best Drama Anthology, and Best Public Affairs Program from the 2nd Alta Media Icon Awards.
