Agua Bendita was only an episode in Komiks, ABS-CBN’s fantasy anthology wayback in 2006, starring Rayver Cruz, Shaina Magdayao and Jaclyn Jose. This time, Jaclyn’s daugther, Andi Eigenmann, will be launched by the kapamilya network in her very first lead role on television via the full-blown series of the said graphic novel.
Jason Abalos will be Andi’s leading man in the series.
Here’s the plot of Agua Bendita:
The story begins with the strange pregnancy of Celeste, the wife of Dr. Cristi, a well-respected doctor. While pregnant, Celeste develops a strange liking for holy water. Such is her thirst that Dr. Cristi ends up stealing holy water from church fonts. A shock awaits the couple once Celeste gives birth: while one of their new twin daughters is a normal, beautiful child, their other daughter is a transparent being with a gel-like appearance. The only time she looks normal is when she is submerged in water. Dr. Cristi names the normal daughter Bendita, and the other Agua.
What will happen to this strange family? How will Dr. Cristi raise his daughters? And what happens when Celeste suddenly dies?
Agua Bendita is coming soon on ABS-CBN.
