Denise Laurel stars in “Ipaglaban Mo” this Saturday (November 18) and plays a woman struggling to reclaim custody of her child from her scheming mother-in-law. Ever since Carla (Denise) and Ernie (Jose Sarasola) started a family, Marta (Jean Saburit), Ernie’s mother, has always meddled with how they raise their children Girlie (Xia Bernard) and Merlie. So when Ernie dies, Carla decides to go back to her mother’s house and start anew there with her kids.
Marta objects and asks Carla to leave her granddaughter Girlie under her care, while Carla finds a stable job to support their needs. Carla obliges at first, until she notices that her daughter is slowly drifting away from her. Will Carla be able to get Girlie back? What will happen when the two take matters to court? Whose side will the court take?
