Identical twin sisters Anita and Winona love the theater. Each year, their town of Santa Ana stages a special play whose lead role is reserved only for 11 to 12-year-old girls. They are eleven years old this year! The girls are similar but different, one confident and the other one shy, both sisters want this once-a-year lead role. But who will snag the coveted starring role in the town’s most important play?
Mahilig sa teatro ang kambal na sina Anita at Winona. Taon-taon, ipinalalabas sa bayan ng Santa Ana ang isang dula kung saan ang bidang anghel ay para lamang sa mga batang babaeng nasa edad labing-isa hanggang labindalawa. Sakto, labing-isang taon na ang kambal ngayong taon! Ngunit parehas nilang gustong maging bida. Sino kaya sa dalawa ang gaganap na anghel sa importanteng dulang ito?
