But as he goes on with his life alone, he meets Sophia (Ritz Azul), a young girl he saves from a burning house. Thankful for her second life, Sophia makes the man who saved her as her inspiration and grows up responsible and hardworking for her family.
After several years, their paths once again cross in a cruise ship where Sophia is working as a seawoman and Nicolas as one of its passengers. Because of Nicolas’ ‘uncanny resemblance’ to the man who saved her life, Sophia insists on knowing Nicolas and tries to learn about his past.
As they spend more time together, they fall in love with each other, but the immortal man’s curse gets in their way and keeps them from having their happy ever after.
But aside from the unbreakable spell, Sophia’s lover Philip (Ejay Falcon) will also make sure that Sophia and Nicolas do not end up together and will do whatever it takes to win her heart back. Also putting their lives in danger is Nicolas’ descendant Marlon (Tonton Gutierrez), whose mission is to end Nicolas’ life.
