Sta. Maria portrays Marissa, who is consumed by her envy of her best friend Ellice’s (Iza Calzado) wealth. She even trades her freedom for money, when Ellice accidentally kills an assailant in self-defense.

In exchange for P10 million from Ellice’s father (Lito , Marissa takes responsibility for the homicide and agrees to go to jail, counting on an early release.

Her time behind bars, however, proves torturous and longer than she expected. She soon pins the blame of her misfortune on Ellice, who, unknown to her, protested the deal and consistently checked on Marissa’s well-being, only to be given false assurance by her father.

When Marissa is released and receives the cash she was promised, she embarks on a ruthless mission: to claim everything Ellice owns, including her marriage with Gabriel (Sam Milby) — hence the series’ title.

Also among the lead cast is screen veteran Maricel Soriano, who portrays Marissa’s mother and apparent voice of conscience, going by the trailer.

“Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin” is scheduled for a March 23 debut.
