A mysterious woman was found seriously wounded on the beaches of the West Philippine Sea. Isabel Sarmiento and her mentally challeneged son, Elai, took her in. She wakes up with no memory of her past life. Soldiers eventually came looking for her and her identity was revealed to be 2nd. lt. Rhian Bonifacio , a member of the nurse corps.
Unknown to everyone, Rhian is also a spy who infiltrated the military to provide confidential information to her father, Santiago "Heneral Tiago" Guerrero, a respected businessman and a former military general. Heneral Tiago runs illegal businesses including arms dealing and drug trafficking in secret and plans on taking down an old rival, General Marcial De Leon, and overthrowing the Philippine government. Rhian's mission includes gaining the trust of Gen. De Leon and his family. She intends to kill him after being convinced that he was responsible for her older brother's death and Tiago's military reputation downfall.
But she can even imagine that she is Arabella, the daughter of Marcial and his wife Corazon who was kidnapped at age of 4 and of whom they are convinced that is dead.
What will happen when this very well-kept secret is discovered? Rhian will fulfill her mission to kill her own father? Or she will try to stop the revenge of the man for who she think as her father?
