This series of stories begins with a match made in hell: the story of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, which led to the conjugal dictatorship that plunged our nation to the dark days of Martial Law. 


But love, too, played a great role in the resistance. The next two stories tell how two couples’ love for the nation and the masses led them to love one another. 

 

For Edna and Alex Aquino, it blossomed at the frontline of the underground movement against the Marcos Regime. 

 

For Mon and Iting Isberto, it was ingenuity and determination that kept them together, from their previous long-distance relationship to their separation during solitary confinement.

One pair plundered the country, and two fought back. Read all three stories here.
