Maris will star as a lady named Myla, a loving and diligent daughter of a seaman called Dionisio, who is in turn, played by Nonie Buencamino.

Being the only girl among the children, Dionisio treated Myla as his favourite. Despite the hardship of having to work away outside of the country, the relationship between the father and daughter did not cease at all. Dionisio would occasionally remind Myla to keep on being industrious and earnest in order for her to finish her studies and pursue her dreams. However, the solid relationship between the two of them had been placed on tricky waters as Dionisio’s relationship with his wife is not turning good.

In the middle of the difficult obstacles that went their way, which would Myla choose if made to weigh between two matters—the current misgivings of her father or the overflowing love and support he gave her since childhood?

This upcoming episode is bound to bring some hype for it will also star Dexie Daulat, Mickey Ferriols, Eva Darren, Tony Mabesa, Encar Benedicto, Alfred Labatos, Jong Cuenco, Yogo Singh and Lui Manansala.
