Story[edit]

Background[edit]

Lucia and Lourdes Saavedra are half-sisters. Lucia has fallen in love with Antonio (a poor man of whom
her father disapproves), while Lourdes falls in love with Martin. She is unaware that he is Prinsipe Abuk,
who has betrayed his people to be human instead of a kuba and who has fallen for Lucia. Lucia marries
Antonio; she later believes he was killed from a beating her father engineered. Her maid (and friend)
Jacinta told her he was dead to one day win his love. Lucia was also told that her baby daughter was
stillborn (although she is sure she heard her cry before she lost consciousness). Lourdes gives birth the
same night, delivering a baby girl whom she saw was a kuba before she passed out. Martin switches his
baby with Lucia's, leaving his own baby at a church.

The kampanera[edit]

The young kuba is named Imang, and grows up to be the kampanera (the person who rings the church
bell). She later becomes the nursemaid of Lourdes, and bonds with her immediately. Lourdes'
"daughter" Veronica is jealous and finds comfort with her Aunt Lucia, who has returned home after
beginning a new life with her American husband and stepson Luke. Lucia has doubts that Veronica is her
daughter, since she has never felt a motherly bond with her. Lourdes is jealous of Lucia's closeness to
Martin.

The nuns try to help Imang, and brought her back to life after Martin wrongly convinced people she was
evil and deserved to be stoned for stealing a sacred crown from the church. They later found a candle
that, when lit, would make her human. She used this to pretend to be Lucia's long-lost daughter
Bernadette to remain close to her mother Lourdes (who, after Imang's "death", was finally told by the
nuns that Imang was really her daughter).

Meanwhile, Veronica is angry that Luke has not returned her love and loves Bernadette instead. She
uses magic to change her appearance, and adopts the name Agatha to gain her family's trust and avenge
Bernadette. Pablo has fallen for Bernadette (although he would always make fun of her as Imang), and
the truth about his parentage is raised. Lorenzo loved Imang when she was a kuba. After Lucia's husband
Clark dies, she discovers that Antonio did not die; he has lost the use of his legs and believes she
betrayed him (when, instead, her father was to blame).

Conclusion[edit]

In the end, everybody finds out whose daughter belongs to whom. Bernadette/Imang does not need the
candle to remain human. Veronica is turned into a tree for her many misdeeds, and her parents rekindle
their marriage while they care for her. Martin is a kuba, and Lourdes still loves him now that he is good.
Luke sacrificed his life for Imang/Bernadette; Bernadette chooses to be with Pablo, while Lorenzo finds
another who looks like her.

Pre-production[edit]

Walang Langit.

One-liner[edit]
