After Mea Culpa, a new Philippine drama named Love Thy Woman will be premiered on the channel ST Novela E plus since November 23rd, 20:40 CAT, between Monday and Sunday. This series is exclusively on StarTimes and first time to air in Africa. It features complicated relationships in a family of mixed cultural background between two generations, and how they react when their love is challenged by accident and sisterhood.
Love Thy Woman tells a story full of twists. Dana and Jia are stepsisters of half-Chinese, half-Filipino descent being groomed to work and someday head the multi-million real estate business their father established. Despite having different upbringings, both of them grew up possessing charm and intelligence. Jia got her degree in interior design in a local university, while Dana finished Architecture in California where she fell in love with a fellow Chinese named David.
This encounter soon led to a grand nuptial between the two families, which unfortunately end in a tragic car accident causing Dana to fall into a deep coma. After nearly a year of fruitless attempts to induce Dana out of the coma, her family reached a decision to soon end her suffering. During these emotionally-trying times, Jia and David formed an unlikely friendship that eventually blossomed into love. But what future awaits the two as harsh moral values and an unexpected miracle complicates their forbidden affair?
