IMhayok (1)

Ever since she started working as a househelp, Ellen has found a second mother in her employer Linda, who treats her like family. As a young lady, Ellen is full of dreams, until a tragic incident shatters it all.

Local fireman Pio (Ron Morales), who’s been eyeing Ellen for quite some time, introduces himself to her as her uncle and takes her to a motel, where he repetitively rapes the unknowing and helpless girl.

It turns out that Ellen is not the only one who fell victim to Pio’s trap, but other househelps in the area as well.

Will Ellen get the justice she deserves? Will the court take her side once Pio twists the truth and accuses her of being a prostitute?

Also included in the cast are Nikki Bagaporo, Tess Antonio, Jess Mendoza, and Gigi Locsin.
