Plot summary

Tragedy strikes when the helicopter that Nick (Wendell Ramos) is riding suddenly crashed in a remote island. A body is found in the crash site but it turned out to be Nick's officemate whose name was not listed in the passenger manifesto. The "death" of Nick caused great grief to Vanessa (Angelika dela Cruz) since she was already betrothed to be married to the young man.

On the remote island, Nick meets Dr. Modesto Mallari (Ricardo Cepeda), a marine biologist. Because of his memory loss, Nick introduces himself as Darwin.

Dr. Mallari takes Darwin to his home where he introduces his daughter, Jessa (Maxene Magalona), a beautiful painter. Darwin admits that he cannot recall his past and Jessa initially doubted his story. However, as time passes by, the two develop feelings for each other and have a child together.

Darwin becomes involved in another accident that triggers the return of his past memories. He remembers that he is a wealthy businessman named Nick who is about to marry his beloved girlfriend Vanessa. With the return of his memory, Darwin's identity as well as Jessa and their child no longer exist in Nick's recollection.

Will Jessa allow her husband to forget her and their son? Or will she have the courage to fight for what she thinks is rightfully hers? What will Vanessa do to keep Nick with her for good? How will she deal with Jessa and her son? Will Jessa's love for Darwin cause Nick to remember their marriage? And who really has the right to have Nick/Darwin? Is it Vanessa, the woman he first loved or Jessa, the woman who bore his firstborn son?[4]
