In the series, Don Romualdo’s son, Cesar, falls in love with a factory worker named Isabel. Among all the girls that he dated, it is only Isabel whom Cesar gets serious with. However, Don Romualdo forces his son to marry Eva, an heiress of the bank who lends them money in order to sustain their business. Cesar later decides to leave Eva and fight for his love for Isabel. But the situation will change when Eva tells him that she is pregnant.
Cesar once had a baby named Bernadette from the former bold star Anna Marie but Don Romualdo was not convinced that Cesar is the father of the baby.
One day, when Eva tries to confront Isabel, a squabble takes place eventually putting the rallying employees to jail, including Isabel and Lucio, her avid suitor. Isabel hopes and prays that Cesar will help them get out of jail. As expected, the case against them was pulled out and they are released.
Full of gladness, Isabel hurriedly goes to the office of Cesar to thank him for the help. To her surprise, Cesar asks her to leave the company and puts an end to their romantic relationship. Her world falls apart and the shock causes an emotional breakdown. Lucio will bring her to the hospital to have her checked and the news of pregnancy was announced by the doctor. She then decides to tell Cesar about the good news but Eva will drive her away.
Eva now faces her fear of Cesar leaving them once he learns of Isabel’s pregnancy. Her mom, Sophia, will convince her to continue pretending that she’s pregnant. They will adopt a baby to make their plan realistic. It will be a success and the baby will be named Natasha.
After many years, the newly hailed Marketing Officer of the Legacy Corporation, Natasha, stumbles upon Diana in a beauty contest and a rivalry is born between them.
The well-loved CEO of the Legacy Corporation Cesar Alcantara passes away. His untimely death marks the fight of Bernadette and Diana for legal rights to their father’s name and estate.
