AFTER playing supporting roles in films like "Ikaw Lang ang Mahal”, “Pornstar 2”. “Palitan” and “The Wife”, Cara Gonzales gets to play the lead role in the new drama thriller, “Purificacion”. 

Set in the small town of Santa Monica, Cara plays Police Inspector Gabriel Isidro, who is tasked to investigate a series of murders. 

She coordinates with the young parish priest, Fr. Ricardo Purificacion (Yosef Elizalde), who is well respected in the community.  

He is considered a perfect role model, but behind his charming personality, he is keeping some deep dark secrets.

As reports on missing women continue to increase, Cara as Gabriela is determined to find the culprit for these crimes. 

The Police Inspector also starts confiding to Fr. Ricardo, thinking that the priest has a good reputation and would greatly help in solving the case. 

Playing a few tricks up his sleeve, Fr. Ricardo misleads Gabriela with her investigation, and Gabriela even finds herself falling for the wily priest. 

Will there still be a chance for Gabriela to uncover the truth? Or will she fall for the priest’s dangerous charms? Cara say this is her most demanding role so far. 

“Kasi first time for me to play a cop investigating a murder case,” she says. 

“Magtitiwala ako sa ibang tao na hindi naman pala dapat pagtiwalaan. Tapos, may sexy scenes din, so dapat balansehin yung role kasi this is a very dark movie.”

How about Josef, was it difficult for him to play a parish priest?  

“Hindi naman. Nahirapan ako doon sa mga linyahan. Kasi ang hahaba at maalalim ang Tagalog, lalo na kapag may Bible verses, dun ako mas nahirapan.”

Supporting them in “Purificacion” are the sexy Vivamax Crushes: Ava Mendez (Ang Babaeng Nawawala sa Sarili), Rob Guinto (X Deal 2), Kat Dovey (Virgin Forest), Stephanie Raz (Larawan) and Quinn Carrillo (Biyak), who will surely spice up this intriguing horror-thriller movie. 

So don’t miss it when it starts streaming on August 5, directed by GB Sampedro.
