Celyn Buenaventura was an ambitious and kind working-class girl living in Cebu with her widowed
mother, Theresa Apolinario. One day, she received an acceptance letter from the University of the
Philippines Diliman, but Theresa was furious and refused to let her go. Celyn thus travelled alone to
Manila, and upon arriving was employed by the owner of a carinderia, who allowed her to sleep in the
eatery. On the first day of school, Celyn met Margaux Marasigan, the daughter of Julio and Beatrice
Marasigan, owners of the famous Memorata shoe company. Margaux lived the luxurious life of an
heiress, and Celyn looked up to her in admiration. Celyn also met her friends, Ethan Castillo and Liam
Lagdameo; she and Liam were initially irritated with each other and she remembered Ethan from a
childhood incident where he seemingly saved her life. Celyn and Margaux eventually became
bestfriends and Celyn found out that Ethan and Margaux were lovers. Margaux may have led a life like a
princess, but she was often concerned about her mother's strictness. Margaux follows everything
Beatrice says, but she knows that her family is against Ethan. They kept their relationship a secret. Celyn
found out that Liam has a lifelong crush with Margaux, which was his bestfriend. They promised not to
tell anyone when Liam also found out Celyn likes Ethan. Beatrice showed great dislike to Celyn because
she believes Celyn is changing Margaux, while Julio defended Celyn. Theresa decided to moved to
Manila with her father, Zacharias, and was found by Julio, who confronted her and asked where she
took his real child. Theresa tried to hide Celyn from Julio, but they already met each other. Ethan's
father ran away because Lucas thought that he is the one who took his money. Ethan's mother because

When Margaux and Ethan decided to elope, they were thwarted by Beatrice after Celyn informed her of
the escape attempt. Margaux couldn't believe Celyn would betray her, and their feud began. Ethan tried
to get Margaux back, but she denied their relationship, leaving Ethan lonely and depressed. Celyn and
Ethan became closer together and Ethan confessed his feelings for Celyn. Margaux longed for Liam's
company, but Liam always tried to defend Celyn whenever Margaux taunted her. Celyn was hurt at how
Margaux treated her. Beatrice, who was really Theresa's maternal half-sister through their mother
Yolanda, found out that Julio and Theresa were meeting each other. Infuriated, she lashed out at
Theresa and confrontations ensued. Julio then revealed to a shaken Celyn that she was actually their
missing daughter, and Beatrice immediately regretted hating her.

Beatrice remained opposed to Theresa, and legal issues about who gets Celyn started. They agreed that
Celyn will stay in Beatrice's house for the weekdays and Theresa's at the weekends. Now graduated,
Celyn and Margaux's feud intensified as Margaux became more confident, determined to destroy Celyn
who bested her by becoming vice-president at Memorata. Margaux thought she loves Liam and craves
for his company, and Celyn forgives Ethan, after a dispute during their graduation. Celyn remained
angered at Liam, and Liam confessed his feelings to Celyn. A jealous Margaux tried to win Liam back.
Theresa's cousin, Oscar, has flashbacks of Theresa's pregnancy; when the midwife delivered twins, he
decided to kept it a secret. The original plan was that Beatrice and Julio raise the child after its birth, but
Theresa refused, saying that she carried the child and was thus its mother. After Theresa gave birth,
Oscar took one child and gave it to Beatrice as promised. It was revealed that Celyn and Margaux were
the twins delivered of Theresa, and Zacharias admits to having engineered the exchange, adding he did
so to keep the peace between the two half sisters. Margaux's hatred towards Celyn became more
relaxed but dangerous; she is a part of the family after all.

Mio Buenaventura, who was Theresa's deceased husband, is revealed to have faked his death and now
seeks revenge. Mio shot Julio, sending him into a coma, and while waiting on him in hospital, Celyn and
Margaux reconciled and prayed for their father's recovery. Julio woke up and was discharged, but Mio
still threatened them. Theresa eventually realized that Ethan's friend, Diego Medina - who had become
close to her when she went back to university was Joshua, her long-lost firstborn whom Mio had
spirited away years before. Driven by guilt and grief, Theresa tried to get Diego back. Celyn and Ethan
spied around Mio's house, trying to find evidence confirming their theory of a link between him and
Diego. Mio caught them, allowing Ethan to escape and holding Celyn hostage, torturing her repeatedly.
Mio asked for an exorbitant ransom from Lucas Elizalde, Beatrice's father, who was Mio's employer and
thus the mastermind. Lucas, who wanted Mio dead lest he be implicated, agreed and sent him the
money through Theresa.

In the rescue operation, policeman fired at Mio while Diego escaped, taking Celyn with him to an
abandoned kitchen. Panicking, Diego randomly fired his gun, causing several LPG tanks to explode and
burn the room. Margaux tried to save Celyn from the flames, but both were eventually rescued by Liam,
while Mio was placed under hospital arrest. Lucas planned Mio's escape attempt because Diego had
blackmailed him. After having a happy reunion, Liam proposed to Celyn, which she accepted. They all
learned that Mio had escaped, and he visited Theresa again, stabbing Liam three times and before
disappearing once more. Beatriz then planned to flee to Singapore for their safety, and she finally
reconciled with Theresa one night, amidst hugs and tears. Margaux, Theresa, Celyn and Beatrice were
then kidnapped by Mio and Diego. Lucas, who had gone to hiding with the two men after being
exposed, saw Beatrice and he text Yolanda on their location. When police reinforcements came in, Mio
ordered Diego to shoot his own mother, which he refused to do after a nervous breakdown. Angered,
Mio tried to wrest the gun from Diego, and after a struggle pulled the trigger, shooting his son before a
distraught Theresa. Diego asked her to forgive him and died, causing Mio to roil in emotional agony for
killing his own son. Theresa managed to flee with the others, but Mio cornered them. He was about to
shoot Theresa when Julio arrived and shot Mio. They all hugged each other while Ethan and Liam ran to
meet them, but Mio stirred and shot Theresa in the back before being himself killed by the police.

In hospital, Theresa came close to death, but survived the gunshot wound. The last scenes showed Celyn
and Margaux over Joshua's grave, saying they forgive him, and pictures of Margaux & Ethan and Celyn &
Liam, married to each other. Lucas was in prison being visited by Yolanda, who forgave him for what he
did. Celyn and Margaux eventually became pregnant, with Liam and Ethan by their sides, and Celyn gave
birth, followed by Margaux. The series ends with scenes of the entire extended family in church for the
baptism of the babies, with Celyn and Margaux's babies holding hands while their mothers' arms.

Ina, Kapatid, Anak is a family drama directed by Don Cuaresma and Jojo Saguin of the fantasy drama,
100 Days to Heaven and written by Danica Domingo of the critically acclaimed melodrama, Tayong
Dalawa. The story conference was held in May 11, 2012 where it was officially green-lit for
production.[8] The idea of the concept came from the success of previous ABS-CBN dramas, namely Iisa
Pa Lamang and Magkaribal which both focused on characters of the high society.


According to several reports made earlier by the management, the drama was supposed to be Andi
Eigenmann's comeback project as an actress after her pregnancy, she was to star opposite Jessy
Mendiola.[9] During the course of pre-production, Eigenmann and Mendiola were offered separate
projects by the network, Andi with Kahit Puso'y Masugatan[10] and Mendiola with Paraiso,[11] which
they both accepted causing them to back out of the project. Meanwhile, Enchong Dee remained part of
the series as Ethan, as originally planned, although the roles previously given to Martin del Rosario and
Joseph Marco were offered elsewhere.[12] After so much delay in production, ABS-CBN tapped Maja
Salvador and Rayver Cruz to play the roles previously given to Mendiola and Joseph Marco,[13] however
during filming, the production crew left out Cruz's character as they felt that his character was no longer
needed. Meanwhile, Kim Chiu and Xian Lim replaced Eigenmann and Del Rosario in the final casting of

The series marks the reunion of Chiu and Lim as a tandem[14] and Chiu and Salvador as rivals[15][16]
after the highly successful romantic comedy, My Binondo Girl for which actress Cherry Pie Picache was
also part of, this marks the third time Picache and Chiu working together in one project.[17] It is also
Chiu's reunion with Dee[18][19] and veteran actor Ronaldo Valdez who she once worked with in the
Philippine adaptation of the South Korean drama, My Girl. Meanwhile, the drama is Dee and Salvador's
first on-screen team up.[20]


Ina Kapatid Anak is one of the top rating shows of 2013. Last February 21, 2013, the family drama
posted an all time high rating of 40.4%.[21] Its finale episode, which aired on June 14, 2013, registered a
whooping 42.9% national rating based on Kantar Media survey.

Cruze airbag controversy[edit]

Some viewers of the episode where Celyn and Margaux figure in a vehicular accident were surprised
that the airbags of the Chevrolet Cruze used in the scene did not deploy despite the damage to the car
depicted. People took their observations to Twitter, and concerned motorists enquired of Chevrolet on
the car's airbag deployment mechanism. The automobile manufacturer issued a statement, reminding
the public that they were watching a fictional series that did not depict a real event, and calling on such
programmes to present factuality on technical matters. A regular cast member of Ina, Kapatid, Anak had
to apologise over the issue on behalf of the staff, the writers and ABS-CBN.[27]
