A young woman bears the burden of being the sole witness to the rape committed against her by four men, all denying her allegation, on “Ipaglaban Mo” this Saturday (July 7).

Kate (Jane de Leon), who works as a maid to help out her family, goes home to their small town to take care of her ill father.

On the way back to her employer’s house in the city, she is prevented from going down the ferry she rode by four of its crew members because she did not have enough money to pay her fare.

The four men give in to their inhumanity and rape her, one after another, while keeping her prisoner.

Kate escapes her captors and flees to her employer, who accompanies her to the police to file a report.

As the only person at the scene of the crime, Kate has to testify against the four men trying to ruin her reputation.

Will Kate’s testimony be enough to hold her rapists accountable?

“Ipaglaban Mo,” the longest-running legal drama on Philippine television, offers viewers entertaining and informative episodes about real-life cases, which they may learn from. It also offers free legal advice to the public every week at ABS-CBN’s Tulong Center in Quezon City.

Don’t miss the “Bayad” episode of “Ipaglaban Mo,” directed by Froy Allan Leonardo, this Saturday (July 7) after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN.
