The story of Pablo Gomez's Magdusa Ka revolves around the life of Christine Salvador (Katrina Halili), a poor young waitress raised with love and care by her mother, Victoria "Toyang" (Rita Avila). A loving daughter, Christine dreams that one day all the sufferings she and her mother currently endure will end. And she wishes that she will be able to do so, with the help of her boyfriend Rodolfo "Rod" Henson (Dennis Trillo). She sees a ray of hope when she discovers she is actually the daughter of a Doliente, a powerful, rich family. Her mother prohibits her from seeing Rod and to go to the Doliente mansion. Christine disobeys her mother because she tells herself that the financial aid from the Dolientes will help their family. But as time passes, she is only fooling herself. She is now enjoying the lap of luxury. When she realizes that this life of luxury only brought her more pain, Christine tries to come back to Toyang but she is now closing doors to her. She must learn to suffer with the consequences of her actions and in the process mend the things she unintentionally destroyed.
