StarringDawn ZaluetaRicky DavaoMiguel RodriguezJohn RegalaMichael De MesaTonton GutierrezDirectorCarlo J. CaparasMaggie de la Riva was a popular young actress in 1969 when she was abducted and raped by four men from rich, influential families. Because she refused to be cowed by public opinion, which during that time believed that victims should keep quiet about sex crimes, she pursued the case at the cost of her career and the public humiliation which came with the massive media coverage. As a result of her extraordinary courage, her rapists were sent to die in the electric chair. Concerned about the rising number of crimes against women in this present day, Maggie came out of retirement to once more tell her story. This film is the result.
