Philippine drama can be classified into different forms and genres, the most popular is the teleserye which is a television form of melodramatic serialized fiction. It's rooted from two words "tele", short for television, and "serye", a Tagalog term for series.
Teleserye is now used as the generic term for most Filipino soap operas on television, although the term officially came into existence in 2000 when ABS-CBN aired its first official form of teleserye, Pangako sa 'Yo. Prior to this, Filipino soap operas were called either telenovelas (and still is referred to as such) and soap operas.

David "JR" Garcia, Jr. (Anderson) was born into a poor family. His father, David Garcia Sr. (Faustman), deserted his mother, Marlene (Picache) before he was born because his wife, Ingrid Garcia (Isidro) was pregnant with David "Dave" Garcia, Jr. (Cuenca). When Audrey King (Chiu) and her family went to Tagaytay for a visit, she fell from a set of high stairs. If it wasn't for David "JR" Garcia Jr., she probably would have died. She asked for the young boy's name and the boy introduced himself as David Garcia, Jr. When she gets to the hospital and is asked by the witnesses and her family who saved her, she says it's David Garcia, Jr. but David "Dave" Garcia Jr. was credited for it. Audrey did not realize that he is a different boy.
As she grows up falling in love with Dave, Dave meets his best friend and later on, his brother, JR. Their families did not approve of the friendship. Dave's family thought that JR just wanted to use Dave for money purposes. Dave and JR's mother's would not let the two hang out. But their father allowed the friendship to continue, because there was something about JR that David Sr. liked. Dave's grandmother, Elizabeth (Gamboa), suspects and so does JR's mother, Marlene, but nothing stops these two from becoming best friends. When everyone found out that Dave and JR are siblings, the family rivalry became worse. Elizabeth, Dave's grandmother did everything to make sure that the news about the siblings won't come out. She lied and schemed for Marlene, JR's mother, to go to jail. Audrey's father then sent her to Cebu to continue her studies until such time that JR met Audrey in the airport. He feels like he has seen her before, but does not realize who she is. When Dave and JR were sent to the Philippine Military Academy, they started to get competitive with each other, in academics, and for their true love. When they finally got into battle, will brotherhood save them both, or will envy leave them both to die? Audrey has grown up in love with the wrong person, but when she realizes who her true savior is, will she be able to return her love?
