Maris Racal will face off with the abusive step-family of her cousin in “Ipaglaban Mo” this Saturday (August 18).
Maya (Maris) and Tin (Mary Joy Apostol) grew up very close to each other but will be separated when Maya’s family migrates to a different country. This will leave Tin alone with her father and his second family.
Tin’s stepmother and half-siblings mistreat her and take advantage of her weak mind. Their abuse will worsen upon the death of her father. While they spend her inheritance from her mother, who died while giving birth to her, Maya is kept locked in a hidden room under poor conditions.
Maya learns of Tin’s situation after coming back to the Philippines. She will sue Tin’s stepfamily in court for custody of her cousin.
Will Maya be able to rescue her cousin from her stepfamily? Will Tin be able to get her inheritance back?
