This is not just another sad story of an OFW. This is the unspoken truth about the plight of Filipino males in the Middle East. A Filipino worker is on the death row for killing his Arab employer. Because of a lady reporter who is bent on doing a full story about him, government officials are now trying to help him. But Fidel, the accused, doesn't seem to cooperate. Filipino trial lawyers are asking him to say it was self-defense but Fidel insisted that he killed the Arab on purpose, out of revenge. He seemed withdrawn and full of hatred, contrary to what Vega learned about his past - a "boy-next-door" type of person who grew up with a loving family. Fidel was also the president of his religious class in high school and was very active in socio-civic projects in college. His profile doesn't fit the picture of a killer - and yet he has admitted to the crime.
