Plot[edit]

In Barrio Mausok where the town folks still believe in the presence of engkantos, there lives the affluent Sagrado Family, Don Joaquin (Dante Rivero) and Dona Benita (Chanda Romero) and their two beautiful daughters Alice (Sheryl Cruz) and Diana (Rita Avila). But Diana apparently attracts more suitors than Alice causing the latter to harbor enmity for the favored one.

Surprisingly, regardless of her countless suitors, Diana gives her heart to Simon (Ariel Rivera), a beastly-looking young man with a distorted face feared to have descended from the Engkantos. Soon the news spreads about their relationship and Diana's parents try to end their romance. However, it's too late since Diana is already with child.

During her pregnancy, Diana thinks she will have twins since her stomach is so big. But upon her delivery, only one baby comes out, much to her bewilderment. Unknown to them, aside from the human baby Luna (Heart Evangelista), Diana also gives birth to a baby in the form of a shadow, which turns out to be Celestina.[2]

The twins grow up without their mother or their father, who mysteriously disappeared. Luna grew up to become a weak disfigured woman who is always mocked by people around her, except for her childhood sweetheart, Dexter. While Celestina grew up to be the strong willed one who always wanted to experience life and became tired of being the shadow of Luna. Because of a mysterious fruit provided by the engkantos, their roles will change every time the moon will show up. When the sun rises, Luna is human but when the moon is above the sky, Celestina becomes human and Luna becomes the shadow. Celestina harbors a lot of envy on her twin so by night time, she secretly tries to take over her own sister's life, She tries to sabotage her sister's life especially make Dexter fall for her exceptional beauty.
