Plot summary[edit]

Despite their different social backgrounds, Lissa (Jennylyn Mercado) and Benny (Hero Angeles) have found their match in each other. Unfortunately, Benny dies before they could marry, and Lissa is left with no choice but to seek the help of Benny's parents. Their arrogance is as lofty as their fortune, and to them, Lissa is nothing but an opportunist. Their only concern is their late son's unborn child that Lissa is carrying. The only person who treats Lissa with kindness is Eric (Mark Herras), Benny's brother, who has secretly fallen in love with her. Eric made a promise to Benny that he would find Lissa and take good care of her, a promise that Eric vowed he will never break.[3]
