Their parents went to great lengths to make money for the treatment, but JC was running out of time. In desperation, their mother gave up Aris’s adoption and received a fortune. Soon, JC and Aris will face each other on the relative side of the law, and they don’t know they are brothers. Will they fight each other, or will they remember that they are a blood brother?
