The Promise (2000)
Yna’s life is foretold at the expense of her own mother’s tragic fate. While working as a servant in the Buenavista household, Yna’s mother Amor finds herself falling in love with Dona Benita’s son, Eduardo. As their illicit love affair is unveiled, Amor is forced to leave the Hacienda for good – vowing revenge on her cruel oppressors and the man who broke her heart. Caught unawares of the grave result of his affair with Amor, Eduardo marries Claudia, an ambitious woman who comes from an equally prominent family. After giving birth to Eduardo’s child, Amor leaves her daughter Yna, as she prepares for a much- anticipated confrontation with her unsuspecting enemies.
Yna is raised by this kindhearted foster family knowing her mother’s tale of pains, struggles and betrayal. But another tragic twist of fate unwittingly leads her back to the lands of her roots, into the hands of the now influential Buenavistas. For as Eduardo’s wayward son Angelo takes full control on their hacienda. Yna falls victim to the same, painful ordeal that her mother once suffered- by falling in love with the child of her most influential foe. But within the confines of the Buenavista household lie the key to unraveling the grave secrets and long- forgotten memories that continue to plague Yna’s life. And as the young lovers are forced to confront the endless trials and hardships of keeping a love that knows no boundaries Yna is soon to compel to learn the devastating truth behind her unknown past and the mother she never knew.
