‘The Promise’ which shows on ONMAX is dubbed the first “teleserye” on Philippine television, as well as the first ever Philippine television series to be broadcast outside the country. The story begins with the romance between Amor de Jesus (Eula Valdez) and Eduardo Buenavista (Tonton Gutierrez). Eduardo’s mother, Doña Benita (Liza Lorena), opposes the relationship since Amor was a housemaid and because she wanted Eduardo to marry Claudia Zalameda (Jean Garcia) for political reasons. Doña Benita asked Eduardo’s older brother, Diego (Jestoni Alarcon), who was also attracted to Amor, to separate them. Upon seeing Diego trying to rape Amor, Eduardo mistook it as them having a relationship, breaking his heart and prompts him to marry Claudia. The now-pregnant Amor was banished from the Buenavista hacienda and she returns to her mother in Manila, who was living at the Payatas dumpsite. She vows revenge on the Buenavista family when she learns that Eduardo has married Claudia.
