For the very first time, celebrity siblings Arjo and Ria Atayde worked together in an acting project via Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK).  The two will embark on a fight for the environment as Armin and Rosedel Marin this Saturday (December 8).

Rosedel and Armin were inseparable when they were kids. They grew up having a love for family and innate appreciation for their native Sibuyan in Romblon. They vowed to take care of each other, their loved ones, and their beloved town of Sibuyan until they grow up.

When the siblings set foot in Manila for their college education, they also began a life vastly different from their life in the province. Meanwhile, their parents (Ernie Garcia) and Titing (Tetchie Agbayani) were overjoyed that their children were able to go to school in Manila, especially when they finished Commerce and Civil Engineering, respectively.

Asked about their first team up, Ria says, “Super happy. Dream come true para sakin. Para samin (ni Arjo).” | Arjo on working with her sister, “Magaling siya and very professional. Walang awkward feeling with her.” | In photo: Arjo and Ria with Tetchie Agbayani and Ernie Garcia

When Rosedel eventually bears a child and builds a family early on in life, this causes a rift between the inseparable siblings. Rosedel decides to stay behind in Manila to raise her child while Armin goes back to Sibuyan.

One day, a big mining company brings chaos to the land and threaten the natural resources of their town. Some townsfolk decide to shrug it off because of the mining company’s influence.

Will Rosedel and Armin put aside their rift and reconcile? Is it too late for Sibuyan’s natural resources to be saved?
