PremiseEdit

Anna Manalastas (Coney Reyes) is the dictator of a toy company that she built. In the past, she was a smart and talented little girl who never saw her mother. Her father mistreats and threatens her whenever she tries to impress him, although the actions of her father were out of discipline. She got pregnant later in her life, and for this her father got very mad. At her father's deathbed, she was taught how humans can never be capable of goodness.

After giving birth, Anna gave her daughter away since she didn't think she could adequately raise the child and provide proper love and support for her. She then grows up to be mean, selfish, obnoxious and greedy due to her troubled past. Later on she was killed in a car explosion, an orchestrated "accident" which was planned by her most trusted employee's ( Bobby) wife, Miranda. As she was about to be condemned to hell, Tagabantay, the gatekeeper of heaven, gives her a second chance after bargaining. She gets a chance to live again and make amends with those whom she wronged while still alive, but as a child, and for only 100 days.

In her quest for redemption, she'll be helped by people she thought were insignificant, and eventually run into her own daughter who will prove crucial to her own mission.

RerunsEdit

On March 14, 2020, ABS-CBN announced that 100 Days to Heaven will be re-airing on Primetime Bida beginning on March 16, 2020, temporarily replacing Pamilya Ko as part of the network's special programming block during the 2020 Luzon enhanced community quarantine done to stop the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus/COVID-19 in the Philippines which necessitated the network to suspend teleserye tapings.[9] However, the re-runs were moved to 5:05 PM as the network decided to give the timeslot to a rerun of Meteor Garden's 2018 remake.[10] This rerun was abruptly cut due to the temporary closure of ABS-CBN following the cease and desist order issued by the National Telecommunications Commission on account of its franchise expiration.[11]
