New Philippine drama MEA CULPA is to be launched on StarTimes
A new Philippine drama named MEA CULPA will be on ST Novela E plus channel #128 from 19 Oct, 6:40 PM, an episode each day between Mon and Sun.
It is a story about complicated social relationships and realization of justice. After passing the bar exams necessary to become full-fledged lawyers, six friends – Juris, Drei, Gaylord, Greco, Lolita, and Bogs – go on a road trip to celebrate their success. But as they blaze and booze on the way, their joyride soon turns into a homicide when they accidentally run over and kill a woman in cold blood. Fearful of the impact the incident will have on their respective futures, they all decide to bury the body and keep it secret forever. Further complicating matters however, is the fact that the deceased was holding a baby. Plagued by guilt, Juris makes the decision to adopt the child and claim her as her own. Years later, everyone has moved on to lead their own lives. Everyone, except a woman named Fina – a determined mother on a mission to find and reunite with her long lost daughter. Will one woman’s search for justice prevail against a secret kept by multiple people?
The subtle feelings and potentials in pursuit of justice make every character vivid. In addition, the story is quite different from those in traditional dramas, the conflicts between an ordinary mother and six professional legal talents seems will lead to some obvious results with overwhelming preference on the latter’s side, however, the unpredicted decisions of these characters created many more twists and wonders.
