Synopsis[edit]

A meteor crashes into the desert of Sto. Sepulcro. The town blacksmith, Flavio, forges a dagger and a churchbell from the remains of the meteor. He uses the dagger to fight off the evil Sombra Oscura, who constantly attacks the town. By some mystical power, the dagger transforms into a great sword every time Flavio wields it.

In his final battle against evil, the Panday faces off against Lizardo, the son of Rodgin and the leader of the Sombras. The battle is intense, but Flavio prevails in the end, vanquishing Lizardo.

Having saved Sto. Sepulcro, Flavio decides to give up his sword. He goes to the church and casts his fabled weapon into the bell he also made. A white light then shoots out from the sky, and it lifts up Panday into the heavens.

The people of Sto. Sepulcro rejoice now that Panday has brought them peace. Unbeknownst to them, the Sombras discover that there is a part of Lizardo that is still alive — his brain.

To bring him back to life, they must transcend time and space to look for the girl who can resurrect their master.

Background[edit]

Panday literally means "the blacksmith." Ang Panday is the TV adaptation of the hit Fernando Poe Jr. movie-series Ang Panday that lorded the silver screens during the early 1980s. It is about a blacksmith who made an enchanted sword that gives him special powers to battle the dark forces.

Today, Philippine TV station ABS-CBN relives the magic of Panday as they bring it on TV. This soap opera was not claimed to be shot as a soap opera, but a movie.

Some of the location shots were taken in a remote town in Bohol, where the beach is white. Locals called it "colgate-white".
