Monica (Angel Locsin) grew up with a little manifestation of love from her father and two brothers. She will then realize her real worth when she meets Adrian (Jericho Rosales). However, Monica and Adrian's marriage is challenged as Adrian and Nicole's (Maja Salvador) paths continue to cross, igniting a fire that will drive Monica to fight for her right as the legal wife. Little Monica and her parents are a picture of a happy family, until an accident forces her mother Eloisa to reveal the truth that Dante is not her husband and Monica's father. And just as abruptly as this astonishing revelation was made, Javier enters the picture and reclaims the wife and daugther that are rightfully his--- leaving Dante in desolation. Hurled into a world totally opposite to the fishing village she grew up in, Monica couldn't care less about the comfort and luxury of her new home. She misses Dante and has difficulty getting along with Javier and her brothers, Javi and Jasper. Nevertheless, her mother's determination to rebuild their family compels Monica to make an effort to settle in. Years later, Monica Santiago, now a woman, is still struggling to seek stern Javier's approval as well as the acceptance of her eldest brother Javi. Despite the tension in their household, Monica remains good-natured--- something her best friend Nicole frowns upon. Unlike Monica, Nicole Esquivel is feisty and audacious, but these are traits that comprise a mere shell, for deep inside, Nicole is hungry for love and attention. Nicole's insecurities are not unfounded--- she is actually Dante's daughter from a previous relationship which he deserted out of love for Eloisa. And although Nicole and Monica were introduced to each other under unpleasant circumstances, they become each other's confidant and staunch supporter. Monica loves her family and wishes to help keep their family business, Vita Sardines, thriving. But with Javi running the operations, Monica has no choice but to begin a career elsewhere. And it is in the field of advertising where she crosses paths with the ambitious but charming Adrian De Villa. Their initial encounters infuriate Monica, but she cannot deny the fact that she finds Adrian more interesting than annoying. No English subtitles
