Pinang is a simple barrio girl from the Philippines who dreams of working abroad. Her lovelife has taken a back seat to providing a better life for her family. Meanwhile, thousands of miles away is Phil, a Brazilian playboy living in Singapore, who has broken too many women’s hearts. Phil’s search for his nanny takes him to a fateful trip to the Philippines where he unexpectedly finds true love instead. When Pinang and Phil cross paths, a collision of cultures ensues – different languages, different backgrounds, and different perspectives. One has conservative Filipino values while the other is as liberated as can be.
