A wedding of a dear friend brings him to the Philippines, which also gives him the chance to find his childhood nanny who he want to make amends.
As he searches for a person very dear to him in his past, Phil also finds the woman who will make his heart skip a beat like no other. How will the aggressive Brazilian-Japanese hunk gran the r eyes of the conservative and very reserved Pinay?
