Two families gamble on love and principles in ‘Sandugo’

What happens when parents give up their values and principles in order to save their child’s life?

ABS-CBN presents a new, powerful story about two families who are linked by both love and the law, and a disconcerting past marked by poverty and desperation in the afternoon family drama series “Sandugo,” which starts airing on Kapamilya Gold today.

“Sandugo” features Ejay Falcon and Aljur Abrenica in their starring roles as fraternal twins who will become mortal enemies, with a powerhouse cast composed of Vina Morales, Ariel Rivera, Gardo Versoza, Elisse Joson, Jessy Mendiola and Cherry Pie Picache.

The new Dreamscape offering revolves around fraternal twins Julius Caesar and Aristotle, fondly called JC and Aris, who have been partners through thick and thin as children.


A regrettable and heartbreaking decision leads to the brothers’ separation.

While JC (Ejay) becomes an NBI agent, Aris lives a life of crime and turns into a syndicate leader.

Brought together again by fate, the two unknowing twins’ new relationship is charged with extreme hostility — going head-to-head from opposing sides of the law without knowledge of each other’s true identities.

“Sandugo” is directed by Darnel Joy Villaflor and Ram Tolentino.
