"Steph Asuncion and Tonio Bugayong were once in love. Back then, she was a young girl who wanted a simple life and he was older, more ambitious than she was.

What might have been a sweet relationship ended sourly when Tonio left without saying goodbye. Steph was heartbroken and it taught her to dream bigger to be worthy of love. Will their paths cross again? Will they overcome the pains of the past to give love a second chance? This is a story between two people who will be reminded about the importance of being true to one’s self in order for true love to happen."
