Forevermore is a 2014 Philippine romantic drama television series directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, starring Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, together with an ensemble cast. The series aired on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block and worldwide on The Filipino Channel from October 27, 2014, to May 22, 2015, replacing Ikaw Lamang.[1][2][3][4]

Plot[edit]

This is the story of Alexander "Xander" Grande III (Enrique Gil), the rebellious, broken only child of a hotel magnate, and Maria Agnes Calay (Liza Soberano), the humble, beautiful and hardworking daughter of a strawberry farmer in La Presa, Benguet.[5] They cross paths when Xander crashes into Agnes' strawberry truck while base jumping. After the incident, his parents force him pay for the damages and his recklessness by having him work in the strawberry farm without any comfortable amenities under the guidance of Agnes, alongside her strawberry farm community. The journey towards Xander's immersion within a totally different world was not easy for both, however, due to Agnes and the La Presa community, he transforms from a broken boy into a very charming, understanding, and caring man loved by everyone. Xander and Agnes soon fall deeply in love with each other, but unknown to Agnes, Xander has unfinished business with his first love, Kate Saavedra (Sofia Andres). Aside from this, Xander and Agnes' love is further challenged when they get entangled in the strawberry farm land dispute between their families. Realizing what is important, Xander makes the greatest sacrifice for Agnes, the woman he loves the most, and that it's best for them to part ways. As fate would have it, after two years of separation, they meet again.
