(Kung Ako'y Iiwan Mo)


Shaina Magdayao, Jake Cuenca, Bangs Garcia, Ron Morales, Sandy Andolong, Ronnie Lazaro and Gloria Diaz

Strongest among female adults (35+) and male kids (2-12)


Paul and Sarah are childhood friends whose fathers both work as construction workers in the Middle East. When Sarah’s father accidentally dies in Saudi Arabia, Paul’s father is burdened by guilt and takes Sarah’s family as his own --- until he gets sick and dies. With both fathers gone, the relationship of the two families becomes strained, forcing Paul and Sarah to separate.

Destiny takes its course when the two meet again after 7 years, rekindling their love. Paul breaks off with his current girlfriend Mia and marries Sarah. To seek greener pastures in order to support his soon-to-be family, Paul flies to Qatar as an overseas worker. But this inevitably leads to the ultimate test of his love for his Sarah. All alone in Doha, Paul experiences the life where he knows no one and the pain of being disconnected to his family.

The distance between Sarah and Paul starts to fracture their relationship. Paul finds comfort in his old flame, Mia, who has moved from Dubai to Doha. The two reconnect and forge an unlikely friendship.

Left in the Philippines with Paul’s family who despises her, Sarah deals with the difficulty of being apart from her husband and the fateful death of their baby.

When Paul returns to the Philippines, Sarah tries to patch up things, but she struggles as Paul’s experience in Doha has hardened him. Paul realizes that the time that they spent away from each other has changed both of them and what he thought was destiny, he now views as a mistake. He asks for a separation, but Sarah vows to fight for their marriage no matter what. Things get more complicated when Mia asserts her love and leaves no stone unturned until she steals Paul away from Sarah.
