Kasal follows Lia Marquez (Bea), a simple woman set to marry Cebu’s most eligible bachelor Philip Cordero (Paulo). Currently, Philip made plans on running to clinch the mayoral position after his father’s term ends.
However, things get complicated when Lia’s ex-boyfriend Wado dela Costa (Derek) returns to work for them. Wado also works in helping Philip win the elections. Inevitably, feelings resurface and doubts arise. As we get closer to the wedding day, Lia becomes unsure if she chose the right man to marry. She also becomes torn between the man from her past and the man she would build a future with.
Basically, it’s a romance drama conflict. Throw in some politics, a returning ex-girlfriend, some common family issues. For Philip, a dead brother, a nosy soon-to-be mother-in-law and a controlling father. On the other hand, Lia has a transgender father she can’t accept. Meanwhile, Wado longs for his son who lives abroad with his ex.
