Life seems to be looking up for the Ejercito family in 1996, despite a new boom of conservatism spearheaded by John Howard and Pauline Hanson.
19-year-old Lovia falls in love for the first time, her disenfranchised, alcoholic, disenfranchised father Jovy finally gets a job, and her brother Vergel lands a role in an ultra-fabulous amateur production of a Broadway classic. While the family embrace and challenge the opportunities presented to them, the return of a long-estranged presence rocks the lives of the Ejercito family to its very core.
Ate Lovia (AH-the LOW-viya) is a new Filipino-Australian drama, that explores what it means to stay loyal to your family, no matter how brutal it gets.
