Marissa is a kasambahay working in Metro Manila but was taken to Aklan by her employers to attend the wake of her male employer’s father.
It was her first time in Aklan but she was surprised when a man knew her and kept asking why she was there; however, the man called her ‘Marina’, not ‘Marissa’! It really puzzled Marissa why this man kept calling her Marina and seemed to know her so much.
It was later revealed that she had a long-lost twin named Marina – and the woman looked almost exactly like her! Wow. We thought this only happens in the movies…
Back when they were children, Marissa and Marina were inseparable. They even wore matching outfits and went to places together.
But life took a turn for worse when they had a stepmother. The woman was just like stepmothers in movies, leading Marina to run away and become a housemaid. She would later regret that she had not told her twin sister about her plan because they would not see each other for decades after that.
With Marina gone, Marissa also ran away to follow her, later going to Manila after learning her twin had gone there to find a job. Sadly, the twins never saw each other even after they had families of their own.
Time passed and they heard nothing from each or their brother and father left in the province.
It would be by chance that the family would be reunited – and it was a reunion that left everyone in tears, not just the twins and their family but also netizens who were amazed by their story.
The reunion was made possible with the help of Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (One at Heart, Jessica Soho).
