If Only


An epic love story about three generations of love and betrayal, and how the sins of the past continue to haunt two families whose lives are destined to be intertwined.

Carissa's rich adoptive mother, Adelina, was cheated on by her husband Bernardo, who fathered Marietta with another woman. Carissa and Marietta are best friends despite the rift between their parents. However, a falling out ensues when both fall in love with Nicolas, a handsome mysterious stranger.

Carissa becomes pregnant with Nicola's child. Feeling betrayed, Marietta sabotages their relationship then gets herself pregnant with the child of a man she doesn't love.

When they give birth on the same day, Marietta discovers that her son is sick. She strictly switches her son with Carissa's daughter, knowing that he will be better off with the rich family.

Marietta's son Francis grows up in wealth as Carissa's son, while Carissa's daughter Sarah grows up in slums as Marietta's child. Life is tough for Sarah, but she finds comfort and strength in her older brother, Leonel, Marietta's firstborn.

Sarah and Francis eventually fall in love and their families' history of betrayal is pushed to the core. Leonel complicates the picture when his brotherly affection for Sarah turns romantic once her and Francis' true identities are revealed.
