English Title Begging of Love
Synopsis In this dog-eat-dog world, you either have to stand up and carve a living for yourself or risk getting trampled by others in the rat race called life. This is the dilemma Ditas has faced each and every day of her life. Born to a destitute family, Ditas has resigned herself to the fact that her life will be a struggle; but, still having the strong resolve to make it in life, no matter what. As such, Ditas won't let her lowly stature in life hamper dreams of a promising future. She makes a living by selling her babies to the highest bidder, a lucrative job that was problem-free until a well-to-do couple approached her one-day and changed the rules of the game.

The picture-perfect couple Rodel and Fina are young, good-looking, rich. The couple couldn't wish for anything more since they seemingly have everything anyone could ever want. With one exception. Both Rodel and Fina are eager to start a family; unfortunately for them, it's an impossibility as Fina's medical condition prohibits her from bearing children. When they hear rumors about a certain babymaker, who happens to be Ditas, the couple sees an opportunity to finally fill the void in their lives.

Synopsis Famous plastic surgeon Dr. Hugo worships the ground his fiancée Alicia walks on. That is because he feels Alicia is his creation. From a monstrous carnival freak attraction, he has transformed her into a beautiful and glamorous woman. However, Alicia learns that beauty is not everything and she finds it hard to discern if people like her for herself or for her material wealth and beauty. She yearns to return to her former self, the ugly, monkey-faced Carissa because back then she was sure that people liked her for who she was and not due to her appearance. One such person was her former neighbour and lover, Mendez. Later on it is revealed that Mendez is, in fact, Dr. Hugo's grandson, and thus the former lovers take up where they have let off and plan a scam to get Dr. Hugo's money. The plan is that Alicia will wed Dr. Hugo and get him to transfer his properties under her name. Mendez will then kill his grandfather and then the lovers will live happily ever after. That is, if the doctor does not have a plan of his own- possibly as diabolical as their own.

Andrew's real father, Bernardo, a poor private driver, decides that Andrew will have a better life growing up with his rich bosses. So he makes sure that only he and his wife Patria know that he has switched the two babies when the mothers both gave birth at a provincial hospital. No amount of pleading from Patria can make him change his mind. Out of frustration, Patria resorts to maltreating Gillian.

Jealous of Gillian's new found attention, Andrew decides to force himself on Gillian, an act which leads to the revelation of the secret of their parentage.
