Nathaniel is a 2015 Philippine fantasy drama television series starring Marco Masa as Nathaniel, an angel who returns to earth with a mission to and restore the belief of humanity in God and remind them about the innate kindness that everyone possesses in their hearts.[1] The series was aired on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block and worldwide via The Filipino Channel from April 20, 2015 to September 25, 2015, replacing Dream Dad.[2]

Synopsis[edit]

This is the story of Nathaniel, son of Paul and Rachel Laxamana. As a baby, Nathaniel will be involved in an accident which will cost him his life. Because he died a pure soul, Nathaniel became an Angel upon reaching Heaven. Once he is already 7 years old, he will be sent down to Earth for a mission – to restore people's faith in God, and to remind everyone of their inner kindness, which they may have already forgotten.

Nathaniel lives in Bayan ng Laging Saklolo, wherein he will be adopted by the Bartolome family, which includes Abner, Beth, Dimas, Hannah and Abi. With them, Nathaniel learns the value of having a family. During his stay in earth, Nathaniel will be able to help some people, including his real mother, Rachel, who is now separated from Paul. As he continues with his mission, Nathaniel learns that it was none other than his real father Paul, and his grandmother AVL, who have caused the people of Bayan ng Laging Saklolo to forget about their inner goodness. Nathaniel will do everything in his power to stop Paul and AVL from spreading more evil, without knowing that he is pushing Paul further away from Rachel. However, an evil entity known as the Tagasundo later emerges as the root of all evil and takes human form on Earth with a mission opposite to Nathaniel, to sway humanity from the path of good and will serve as an obstacle to Nathaniel's mission.
