Love Thy Woman
Dana Wong (Yam Concepcion) and Jia Wong (Kim Chiu) are Chinoy (half-Chinese, half-Filipino) stepsisters who grew up in different houses with different lifestyles. Both beautiful, charming and intelligent, they are being groomed to work and someday lead Dragon Empire Builders, a multimillion real estate family business established by their father Adam Wong (Christopher de Leon). While Jia is an interior designer from the University of the Philippines, Dana finished Architecture from the University of Singapore where she met and fell in love with David Chao (Xian Lim). After Dana got pregnant, their grand wedding which began in a fairy tale-like fashion suddenly ended with a tragic car accident. Both bride and groom survived, but Dana fell into a deep coma. Medical experts from different countries stepped in with modern treatments, but nobody could induce Dana out of coma. The whole family, including the Wongs and the Chaos, took turns taking care and watching over Dana for nearly a year. Yet the inevitable reality kicked in that this is already a hopeless case. It was during these emotionally trying times that Jia and David bonded over their shared grief of losing a loved one anytime. A friendship eventually blossomed into love, and later resulted in chaos within the family. Harsh moral judgement ensued, forcing the two to go someplace far to start a new life. Not knowing that their bittersweet happiness will be short-lived, a miracle unexpectedly happens--Dana is finally out of coma. From keeping Chinese traditions and Filipino values alive, not to mention adapting to the changing times, this family saga spanning two generations explores love’s 'shadow side' and duplicitous polarity called 'betrayal.' This is, ultimately, a family’s journey in healing past wounds and cultivating a climate of love and trust in their home.
