They are fated to become the best of friends but only until a well-kept secret from the past is revealed—Celyn is Margaux’s adoptive parents long lost daughter through a surrogate that took her away. Rivalry ensues between the two and they will fight over everything from status, to family, and even love.

“Her Mother’s Daughter” (“Ina Kapatid Anak”) aired weeknights on Philippine television via ABS-CBN, the Philippines’ largest multimedia conglomerate and Filipino master of world-class dramas.
