GMA Network’s groundbreaking historical fantasy series Maria Clara at Ibarra will be available on the popular streaming platform Netflix Philippines beginning April 14.

The series stars Barbie Forteza as Klay, Julie Anne San Jose as Maria Clara, David Licauco as Fidel, and Dennis Trillo as Ibarra.

Maria Clara at Ibarra follows the story of Klay, a young woman who is excited to graduate from the university so she can work abroad. However, she must pass her back subject, Rizal Studies, in order to graduate.

Klay’s professor Mr. Torres gives her another chance by lending her a book of Jose Rizal’s novel, Noli Me Tangere. She wakes up one morning and finds herself in the world of Noli. She desperately tries to return to the present, but she can only do so after she finishes the story and learns her lesson.

As she wanders into the world of Noli Me Tangere, Klay meets Maria Clara, Crisostomo Ibarra, the curates, the ilustrados, and the indios. The characters teach Klay the value of history, empathy, patriotism, and love. It will also open her eyes to the realities endured by Filipinos during the Spanish colonization.

Binge-watch Maria Clara at Ibarra with family and friends beginning 14 April on Netflix Philippines.
