While we are waiting if Senators Grace Poe and Chiz Escudero will be the tandem to beat in the next National Elections, another Poe and another Escudero – the Missus herself, are going to have a different and dark connection that would surely be mind-boggling to Kapuso viewers.
Set to grace the Primetime block this coming August, GMA Network brings together Heart Evangelista and Lovi Poe in another intriguing teleserye entitled BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS.
Heart Evangelista is Khristine de Jesus, a newbie plastic surgeon who is determined to be a great one. Being the illegitimate child of Ronaldo Castillo (played by Christopher de Leon) who have supported her in whatever endeavor she has, Khristine aims to be someone her father can be truly proud of.
While determined to make a difference in the world, Khristine meets Leah (Lovi Poe), a taong grasa, with a burnt skin and who is not in her right mind. When Leah helps Khristine in an incident, Khristine vows to pay Leah back by giving the latter a normal life through fixing Leah’s physical appearance and referring her to a psychiatrist to bring back her sanity. Little does Khristine know, that helping Leah could mean a dangerous future for her.
Leah is Joyce, once a beautiful young lady who happens to have a dark and strong connection with Khristine’s father Ronaldo. In a not so distant past, Ronaldo once attempted to abuse Joyce in the understanding that she was a “gift” given to him by his business partners for his pleasure. When Joyce struggled to fight off Ronaldo’s advances, Ronaldo strikes Joyce so hard that eventually rendered her lifeless.
In the attempt to cover up her husband’s crimes and thinking that Joyce was dead, Ronaldo’s wife Alejandra Castillo (Dina Bonnevie) orders one of her henchmen to burn Joyce’s body to make sure that no one recognizes her. But Joyce lives, and as her memory returns, so is her burgeoning thirst for justice and vengeance.
Can Joyce/Leah truly exact revenge on Ronaldo despite the fact that he is the father of the person who helped her? And will Khristine ever be sorry for helping Joyce/Leah, whose determined to revenge the wrongdoings that Khristine’s father has done to her?
