Sofia’s husband Rico, was a drunk and a bum and didn’t work to support the family. This is why Sofia had to work in place of her husband just to make ends meet. In spite of this, Sofia’s husband was able to accuse her of adultery and took off with their only daughter, Milagros. Sofia then, went after her husband but before being able to confront him, the husband was run over by a bus.

Not to be dismayed, Sofia went off to Manila in search for her lost child. Little did she know that her daughter was adopted by a famous actress named Divina Miguel whose motives for the child was a political move to increase hype for her new movie.

Sofia, having been gifted with an angelic voice, was discovered by a talent manager and eventually became a famous singer-actress. The point came where Sofia’s popularity overshadowed Divina’s and to make things worst, Ramon, Divina’s love team, tied the knot with Sofia and left Divina. This made Divina Miguel furious and from then on considered Sofia as her mortal enemy. Dreading Sofia for taking away everything from her, Divina directed her anger towards her poor adopted child Bea (Milagros).

At times, Divina would think about her child that she gave away for her career. Divina was disowned by her aunt Donya Felisa when she became pregnant. What Divina doesn’t know is that the child she gave away fell under the care of Delia (the maid of Donya Felisa). This child is Charie. Divina was maltreating Charie as she’s just a maid’s daughter, not knowing that it was her own child.

However, when Donya Felisa died, Divina would plot to acquire her aunt’s wealth against Irene who is her aunt’s adopted child and happen’s to be Sofia’s long lost sister.
