Storyline

The story of Lisa (Vilma Santos) and Eric (Christopher de Leon) and how they fought for their love. Lisa got pregnant with Benny (Jay Ilagan ), Eric's brother. However, Benny died in a motorcycle accident. Eric was kind enough to marry Lisa but Eric's mother (Armida Siguon Reyna) disapproved of the relationship and makes life hell for Lisa. Meanwhile, Maya (Amy Austria) wants Eric and seduces him especially when Eric and Lisa were having marital problems. Eric and Maya promptly left for Europe leaving Lisa alone. Despite their different social backgrounds, Lisa (Vilma Santos) and Benny (Jay Ilagan) have found their match in each other. Unfortunately, Benny dies before they could marry, and Lisa is left with no choice but to seek the help of Benny's parents. But their arrogance is as lofty as their fortune, and to them, Lisa is nothing but an opportunist. Their only concern is their late son's unborn child that Lisa is carrying in her womb. The only person who treats Liza with kindness... Written by Anonymous

Glossy drama with fresh look of an old story
10 September 2013 | by Sirfaro11See all my reviews

The story of Lisa (Vilma Santos) & Eric (Christopher de Leon) and how they fought for their love. Lisa got pregnant with Benny (Jay Ilagan ), Eric's brother. However, Benny died in a motorcycle accident. Eric was kind enough to marry Lisa but Eric's mother (Armida Siguon Reyna) disapproved of the relationship and makes life hell for Lisa.

Meanwhile , Maya (Amy Austria) wants Eric and seduces him especially when Eric and Lisa were having marital problems. Eric and Maya promptly left for Europe leaving Lisa alone.

This type of drama has been played and replayed using different situations, characters and settings, but Eddie Garcia somehow injected a fresh look with an old story. Based on comics, this was one of the several stellar drama that Viva produced in the 80's that includes Mahawi Man ang Ulap and Sinasamba Kita, all starring the drama king, Christopher de Leon. The story and screenplay are good, the ending is a little unsure, leaving the audience to draw its own conclusion that things will soon be okay for the couple.

Not really the best Boyet Vilma tandem, but should be seen by avid fans, the glossy drama style was what made Viva famous in the 80's.
