Dr José Rizal (1890?-1900?)

Synopsis

In 1888, Rizal departs the Philippines to argue in Europe for the liberty of his country. Rizal and Leonor promise to write, but letters never arrive. In Belgium, Suzanne Jacoby also falls in love with Rizal and urges him to stay for his safety. His friend and publisher, Dr Maximo Viola sends a copy of Rizal's second book to the Governor in Manila. He also passes on news that Leonor may soon be married to an Englishman. Rizal decides to return to the Philippines, warned by his friends and admirers that he returns to death. Rizal finds Leonor married (to Charles Kipping). Leonor's mother admits to destroying the letters between her daughter and Rizal. He is soon arrested and shot as a traitor on 30 December 1896. the Philippinos soon rise in rebellion against the Spaniards, who surrendered on 10 December 1898. Leonor fell ill and died soon after.

Notes

'M. Clara' is a pseudonym. María Clara de los Santos is the heroine in 'Noli Me Tángere', a novel by José Rizal. Her name and character have become symbolic for traditional feminine ideal in Filipino culture. A final caption in the story compares the love story of Leonor Rivera to that of Juliet Capulet (Romeo and Juliet).
