The story begins in Hacienda Noche where Ayra Noche (Heart Evangelista) and Edwin Torres (JC De Vera) are best friends. Later on, they develop a love relationship. When Ayra’s father, Don Artemyo (Charlie Davao) finds out about this, the two are separated and Don Artemyo forced Ayra to move to United States. When Ayra returns, she finds out that Don Artemyo died and Ayra’s brother, Ronald (Luis Alandy) blames Edwin for it. Ayra listens to Ronald. Ayra also finds out that Edwin became the new owner of Hacienda Noche after Don Artemyo’s death. Ayra and Edwin become big time rivals. Ayra wants the Hacienda back but Edwin says no.
What makes this really worse is that Edwin has a new girlfriend named Donna Benitez (Arci Munoz). Donna feels hatred for Ayra and comes up with schemes for Ayra and Edwin. But soon, Edwin tricks Ayra into loving him.
Few Blocks away from our house in Casa Milan, I saw the house being used for the taping of Maruja. Also saw the location shoot of another TV show from ABS-CBN “Your Song” in the clubhouse on the same day. The caretaker of the subdivision said Casa Milan are amongst the favorite location shoot of local movies, commercials & teleseryes and even asking us if we can add our house to their list for future location tapings.
If you were a fan of SupernaturalorGhost Whisperer, you would surely love the series – Maruja. It comes with simple special effects compared to other horror stories but those are enough to give you goose bumps. Besides, having grotesque effects would only turn it into a comedy. Itis the story that will grip you. And of course the way the story is being told. There is so much mystery!
