The series follows the journey of the twins Ador and Cardo (both played by Coco Martin), who were separated from each other because of financial reasons, even as they followed the path of being police officers.
Ador is a prominent and respected CIDG Police Official in Manila with a loving family as his support. Cardo, on the other hand, loves the solitude of the mountains in the province of Botolan as a SAF Trooper. Their lives take a sudden turn when Ador gets himself entangled in a syndicate after being betrayed by one of his own colleagues, resulting in his death. To conceal this fact, Cardo was ordered to take over Ador’s life and finish the mission his brother left behind. He will also be forced to pretend to his brother’s family and friends, and be re-united with his grandmother, whom he resented, for surmising she deserted him. Challenges later followed in life, and he promised to find the one who killed his brother.
