MANILA, Philippines -- The first trailer of the upcoming drama series "Ina, Kapatid, Anak" has been released.
Released online via video sharing site YouTube, the full trailer prominently shows different kinds of footwear which are indicative of the characters' current state in life.
Announced in May, the Kapamilya soap will feature shoes as a central theme. According to actor Enchong Dee, who stars in the series, the principal characters are involved in the shoe industry, which will also be the source of the story’s conflict.
Actress Maja Salvador, in an earlier interview, likened her character and that of actress Kim Chiu to shoes: "Kung si Kim, tsinelas na parang kahit sobrang sira na, 'yung aayusin at aayusin basta masuot lang, ako maire-relate ko 'yung character sa isang mamahaling sapatos na sobrang kumikinang pero laging nasa kahon lang."
Dubbed as "2012's much awaited teleserye," the soap also stars Xian Lim, Janice de Belen, Cherry Pie Picache, Ariel Rivera, Pilar Pilapil, Ronaldo Valdez, Eddie Gutierrez, Rayver Cruz and Jayson Gainza.
Directed by Don Cuaresma and Jojo Saguin, "Ina, Kapatid, Anak" is expected for prime time airing later this year.
