Nasaan Ka Elisa?


From the hit Chilean series ¿Dónde Está Elisa?, here comes ABS-CBN’s remake, Nasaan Ka, Elisa? (lit. Where are you, Elisa?)

A breath of fresh air — away from the usual Pinoy series of fated love, or heavy drama, or amnesia-induced storyline, this one brings something different.

Intriguing, criminal, and unexpected(?). And I did speak too soon. Plots likes these are, in one way or another, predictable. It’s either the protagonist of the story is the cause of the conflict or someone close to the main character (that writers will try to make that person, which we least expected it to be, be the main suspect of the crime). Hence, it could be his father or uncle or auntie or the janitor she seldom talks to.

SYNOPSIS. The conflict arises when after going to a pub, Elisa disappeared. Elisa is a rich teenage, eldest daughter of Mariano (Albert Martinez) and Dana Altamira (Agot Isidro). She was the perfect daughter, as everyone thought so. After her disappearance, which they assume as a kidnapping incident, investigators, Cristobal (Joem Bascon) and Giselle (Desiree Del Valle) tried to solve the mystery of the missing girl. The two managed to list down names of people who might have possibly kidnapped Elisa, including her family members (aunts, uncles, cousins), her friends and classmates. Now the storyline is being highlighted. They will solve the case, that’s for sure but will they find Elisa? And know the person behind the kidnapper?

MY SAY. Melissa Ricks topbilled this upcoming series. If she was missing in the plot, then wouldn’t that be a big slice of budget saved? Well, this is the interesting part: I must watch it to know it. And what do Angels and Demons, Nancy Drew, Sherlock Holmes have in common that people love? …mind games. Most of us wants to give a little push to understand profoundly what the story is (and not only sticking to CGI’s and action acts). So who do you think is the brain behind Elisa’s disappearance?
