Hiram na Puso (English: A Change Of Heart) is a Filipino drama series created and written by Suzette Doctolero, under the directions of Andoy Ranay and Roderick Lindayag, and produced by GMA Network. The series features Kris Bernal and Gina Alajar as the main protagonists, with Mark Herras, Bela Padilla, Polo Ravales, Gardo Versoza and Ayen Munji-Laurel. The series premiered March 5, 2012 replacing Kokak on GMA Afternoon Prime and March 7, 2012 worldwide via GMA Pinoy TV.[1][2]

The story centers on the lives of Zeny (played by Gina Alajar) and her daughter Lira (played by Kris Bernal). In the story, Zeny is a loving and protective mother who takes all risks to save her daughter from death only to be abandoned by the same daughter after she literally had a change of heart. Soon, Zeny realizes that this is the dire consequence of one irreversible mistake she committed in the past.[3]

This series catches positive feedback, both from the audience and critics, because of its no protagonist-no antagonist concept and edgy and intriguing storyline. Viewers also praises the casts' good acting, particularly Gina Alajar, Kris Bernal, Gardo Verzosa and Ayen Laurel.

The series concluded on July 6, 2012. It ran 18 weeks with 88 episodes overall. It replaced by Hindi Ka Na Mag-iisa in the same timeslot.[4]


Zeny (Gina Alajar) is a nursing student whose life gets complicated when she gets impregnated by her boyfriend who subsequently leaves her. She gives birth to twins, but unluckily, one of them had a heart complication and needed immediate operation. But Zeny couldn't afford the cost of the operation, and so, she was left without a choice but to give up the healthier baby so she can save the ailing one. The ailing child survived and Zeny named her Lira (Kris Bernal). Eighteen years later, Zeny, now a nurse, discovers that Lira’s heart condition has recurred and her daughter is, for the second time, on the brink of death. The only thing that could save her is a heart transplant. But Zeny has no connections. One fateful night, Zeny becomes a witness to a tragic hit-and-run accident. She helps the victim, Angeline (Krystal Reyes), who is almost her daughter's age. For a second, she thought that she's found a "donor" for her daughter’s heart transplant, but that would only be possible if she lets the victim die. She shilly-shallies at first, but moved by her conscience, she decides to take the victim to a nearby hospital but Angeline is already clinically dead. Although distraught by the demise of their daughter, the victim’s parents Leo (Gardo Versoza) and Roxanne (Ayen Laurel) thanked Zeny for attempting to "save" Angeline. Learning of Lira’s ailment, they agreed to donate their daughter’s heart to Lira. Zeny is filled with so much happiness following the success of her daughter’s operation. But her joy will be short-lived. She knew that her daughter survived at the expense of someone else's daughter, and destiny has its way of bringing back the balance. Not long thereafter, Zeny observes strange things about Lira. She seemed to have adopted not only the heart of her donor, but her personality, too. What concerns Zeny more is that while Lira turns cold towards her, she also begins to develop affinity with Angeline’s parents. Upon learning that Lira now has Angeline’s heart, the latter’s boyfriend Prince (Mark Herras) stalks her and later falls in love with her. Unbeknownst to Prince, he is already stepping in the way of Lira’s friend Dennis (Polo Ravales) who secretly has feelings for her. More conflications arise when Angeline’s sister Vanessa (Bela Padilla) has been wanting to win the heart of Prince. Zeny went up against her conscience to keep her daughter, but now she’s emotionally losing her. Meanwhile, eventually, Vanessa is revealed that she is the missing sister of Lira as Kara. At the end, Lira died because of the same accident that happened to Angeline. Lira was pronounced clinically dead.
