Justin (RICHARD GUTIERREZ) & Cecille (ANGEL LOCSIN) play students from different social backgrounds and different high schools. He’s a rich, smart, confident mestizo from a private school in Manila, while she’s a lovely but simple scholar from a rural public school.
Against the wishes of his wealthy parents, Justin pursues Cecille, who also falls hard for the handsome rich boy. Justin, however, is being forced to marry Donna (BIANCA KING), the daughter of his parents’ business partner. Knowing how much Justin loves Cecille, his parents order him to study in the United States in a bid to separate him from the lower-class girl.
Unable to accept the prospect of life without Cecille, Justin is somehow able to take her with him to the US without his parents knowing.
All is great between Cecille & Justin in America. Their love for one another is fuelled further by the captivating, dream-like allure of San Francisco. He proves how much he loves her by not only getting her a student visa, but also by taking a lowly job in a Filipino supermarket in the Bay Area so he can pay for her studies. Cecille has no idea that Justin is working, let alone that he is paying for her studies out of his own pocket.
One day, however, the bubble bursts. Justin’s mother (JEAN GARCIA) drops by to visit, bringing Donna (the young lady who is supposed to marry Justin) with them. Cecille is hidden away again in a relative’s apartment, and is upset that she is being treated like a dirty secret. Things worsen when Cecille catches Justin & Donna in a tight embrace one afternoon, with Donna professing her love for Justin. Cecille is devastated.
Cecille takes the first plane back to Manila, ignoring Justin’s attempts to explain why he was kissing Donna. He remains in San Francisco.
With Justin out of the picture, Cecille’s childhood friend Dennis (JAMES BLANCO) courts her relentlessly. What Cecille really loves about Dennis is that he doesn’t treat her like a dirty secret. Dennis proudly introduces Cecille to his parents, who tell him that Cecille is everything they hoped she would be.
In a few weeks, Dennis and Cecille are engaged to be married. And it is at this point when Justin tries to win Cecille back. Will he succeed? Is there a chance that Justin and Cecille can rekindle the perfect love they had for each other in dreamy San Francisco?
