On December 2009, the management decided to give the main role to Bangs Garcia, because of some unsettled issues with Guinoo.
Nilo (Sid Lucero) and Carmela’s (Bangs Garcia) love will be tested by problems and challenges surrounding their families. They will be separated temporarily by circumstances beyond their control, but fate will bring them back together again.
Nilo and Carmela will prove that their love could overcome everything. But mistakes from the past will not make life easy for them, an old friend Troy (Rayver Cruz) will come back to get Carmela from Nilo. Unbeknownst to the couple, Troy will orchestrate a plan to separate them. He will try to buy off Carmela’s love by forcing her to sell her own dignity to save the man she loves. Troy’s ploy will test Nilo and Carmela’s love for each other. Theirs is a love that will transcend all mistakes, all problems, and all challenges. Nilo and Carmela will prove that love indeed has no price, it is unconditional.
