Duyan (English title: Cradle of Love) is a Philippine television drama and the fifth installment of Now and Forever series. Duyan is a drama about family, love and vengeance.
Duyan tells the story of best friends Cindy (Ella Guevara) and Ella (Ella Cruz) who treat each other like sisters despite their opposite status in life.
Ella is the daughter of Adea (Dawn Zulueta), who works as a servant in the mansion owned by Cindy’s family, the richest family in the province. Several years ago, Adea and her husband Raul (Emilio Garcia) were living in Manila with their two daughters. Unfortunately, Raul, a gambler, sells their two-year-old daughter to a rich couple to earn money. With the help of Rowena (Jana Roxas), Adea escapes with her six-month-old baby Ella to search for her missing daughter.
When the search yields no clues, Adea, together with her sister Rowena and daughter Ella, decide to work in the mansion to elude Raul. While working in the mansion, she continues her search for her missing daughter. In time, Ella makes friends with Cindy, the daughter of the family that Adea works for. Ella may be happy, but Adea’s life is made miserable by Loren (Glydel Mercado), Cindy’s mother.
Loren is cruel and ruthless to Adea, especially after she learns that her husband Mateo (Ariel Rivera) was the servant’s former boyfriend. Adea accepts all the abuse so that she and her family can continue to live at the mansion, far away from Raul.
Despite the conflict between their parents, the friendship of Ella and Cindy remains very firm. Ella protects Cindy from naughty children while Cindy defends her friend from her haughty mother who is against their friendship,
But what if destiny tests the friendship of these young girls by switching their fortune? Will they still stand by each other and keep their friendship? Will the people around them change and reconcile? Or will hatred consume their mothers and urge them to seek revenge?
