Another masterpiece is set to conquer television this new year as viewers witness the story of a gruesome fight against own blood for love and justice in “Asintado,” which stars Daytime Drama Queen Julia Montes with Shaina Magdayao, Paulo Avelino, and Aljur Abrenica and airs on January 15 (Monday) on Kapamilya Gold.
Afternoons will be pumped up with drama and action as viewers get to know Ana (Julia), a woman who is part of a rescue team and aspires to give her adoptive family a good life. Despite being spunky and tough, her heart longs for her sister, who she lost after a fire accident that killed their parents.
Dedicated to her duty, she meets Gael (Paulo), the son of an influential family, who hires her as his personal nurse after saving him from being trapped in a collapsed mine. After spending time together, they get to know more about each other and eventually fall for one another.
However, their budding romance is cut short with the return of Gael’s ex-girlfriend Samantha (Shaina), a famous jeweler who does what it takes to win the love of her life back, even if it means putting matters on her own hands.
This marks the misery ahead of Ana as Samantha plots to unmercifully murder her to get her out of Gael’s life. But her evil ploy does not go as planned: Ana survives the murder with the help of Xander (Aljur). However, she wakes up to the most shocking news — Gael and Samantha are getting married — and now she seeks vengeance to destroy them.
But in the middle of their brutal rivalry lies the biggest secret that will change everything — Samantha is Ana’s long-lost sister, bringing more chaos to their lives.
To where will Ana and Samantha’s fury take them and how much damage can it cause to their lives? Who between them will win the game of vengeance?
