Find out how music, fame and dreams interconnect the love and lives of the four main characters. When Eric Valderama (Marky Cielo) discovers the potential of Sarah Monteza (Glaiza de Castro) as a solo performer, will he also discover a new love in her? Seeing Sarah as a threat to her love and career, what schemes will Joanna Ambrosio (Lovi Poe) use to destroy her competition? Meanwhile, when Marco Salcedo (Jolo Revilla) realizes that the woman he loves is in love with someone else, will he give in and accept defeat? Or will he connive to get what he wants? And what fate does the mysterious—and unfinished—music sheet keep secret for the four main characters?

Sarah has everything ordinary women could only wish for- beauty, wealth, fame. She's the country's most popular performer, everyone admires and even envies her, she deserves it, because she's been through a lot for it. Yet, in spite of all she has, Sarah is not happy. There remains a dark void in her life as she continues to look and yearn for that one person who all her life has been missing- her father. Yet there is hope in her search, an unfinished song that will be given to her. A song that will uncover the many lies and secrets connected to her, her father and the brother taken away from her.
