Storyline

It is about a bride who committed suicide on her wedding night several decades back and appears to have been reincarnated in an actress-producer. The name in the title refers to Maruja Isable Sevilla y Mira (Susan Roces) who poisons herself when forced to marry a man she does not love. This was at the turn of the century but several decades later, she is reincarnated as a young producer-actress Nina Concepcion. Nina is hell-bent on filming the legend involving the couple of ill-starred lovers. However, wandering ghosts and possessions by this incarnate entities in a haunted ancestral home keep Nina's cast busy. Events come to a height when the past collides with the present. Written by Ati-atihan, Mother of All Philippine Festivals
