LUIS (Carlos Dala) is just one of the teenage boys in the idyllic and fishing island of Silag. He goes through the issues of adolescence with his younger sister, LULU (Barbara Miguel), who busies herself by joining amateur singing contests in hopes of becoming a star.

One day, a talent manager discovers her singing and offers her to undergo vocal coaching in Manila, and later to join a popular TV singing contest. Lulu eagerly takes the opportunity and leaves for the city, thinking her dreams are finally coming true. However, after a few months, Lulu’s family loses communication with her. This drives Luis to go to Manila in search for his missing sister.
