To realize any dream, belief and desire are just the starting points. Courage, connection, determination, expertise, passion, and timing are also essential elements needed to bring a it to fruition.

These factors and more are eloquently depicted in Jenny Pearl Ninalga’s first commercial film, “When the World Met Miss Probinsyana.”

“Miss Probinsyana” unfolds as a heartfelt drama, chronicling the courageous journey of Marge, brought to life by actress Rhian Ramos, a resolute young woman from the province, alongside her supportive partner Wil, portrayed by actor Sid Lucero, a seafarer turned web developer. Together, they navigate the trials and triumphs of entrepreneurship, love, and personal growth in the face of adversity.

Drawing from her personal experiences as the daughter of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), Marge embarks on a transformative mission to enact change in her province. Set against the backdrop of a swiftly evolving digital landscape, the film delves into Marge’s pursuit of empowering her fellow Filipinos through Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

With unwavering determination, Marge established her own Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company in the province, challenging the notion that success is exclusive to urban hubs. As her venture flourishes, she becomes a beacon of hope for her community, demonstrating that meaningful employment and career opportunities can thrive beyond metropolitan boundaries.

Marge’s narrative intertwines with parallel stories of Sarah (Kristel Luistro), a young girl yearning for education and a brighter future, and Jade (Kristine Abbey), a reluctant daughter pressured to follow a predetermined path. Together, they symbolize the struggles and aspirations inherent in their respective journeys.

Amidst financial setbacks, self-doubt, and the stigma associated with female entrepreneurship, Marge encounters various obstacles. Yet, with steadfast determination and the unwavering support of her loved ones, she perseveres and ultimately triumphs, underscoring the resilience and tenacity that can overcome even the most formidable challenges.
