Wake Up, Maruja
(Gumising ka Maruja)

by Lino BROCKA

Maruja Isabel Sevilla y Mira (1972-1890) is in love with Gabriel, the stable boy, but has been betrothed by her elders to Rodrigo Velasquez, a captain of the Civil Guard. She takes poison on her wedding night and is reincarnated several decades later in Nina Concepcion, a producer and actress.

Nina is mysteriously drawn to the old stone house where Maruja used to live, in the middle of an isolated sugar plantation. She buys the ancient abode despite warnings that it is haunted. Yet she plans to make a film of Maruja’s life in the huge mansion, with Marco as her leading man and Freedie as her director. A press conference is held in Maruja’s house. Guests are flown in from Manila. In the party, mysterious veiled women in black mix with the crowd…
