Based on Henry James’ Washinton Square as well as the play and film The Heiress, this is a tale of Adela, the long suffering daughter of Maximo. From childhood, she feels unloved. So when a young, dashing suitor, David, came along, she was swept off her feet. But is David true to her words?
Bespectacled Adela (Maricel Soriano) is a homely young woman who is a great disappointment to her father Dr. Maximo Sevilla (Eddie Gutierrez). Slow to learn, Adela can never be a doctor nor a lawyer. She spends her time doing crochet and all she has after her late attractive and elegant mother is her name, Adela. But at a party she reluctantly attended, she meets David Javier (Richard Gomez) a smooth talking bum who Adela’s distrustful father believes is only after her large inheritance. But the gullible Adela is taken by flattery and blinded with love. She attempts to elope with David who stood her up upon learning that she will be disinherited. Losing the only man she ever loved, Adela made her father pay for the aversion she felt from him all her life.
