Two lost souls meet at a holiday resort as the Philippines heads into a Covid-19 lockdown. Martin (Jerald NAPOLES), a bagman on the run with a LOT of cash winds up laying low at Playa, the sort of beachside resort that caters to the rich. Working there is an outspoken hotel housekeeper, Mylene (Kim MOLINA), and when the two lock eyes, it is love at first sight. This feeling is compounded when Mylene becomes his confidante and it isn’t long before they are both baring their souls and their bodies to each other. As they become closer, they reveal their secrets and shames and how they both desire to escape their past. This sets in motion a powerful romance as the two find a new hope for life...

Real-life couple Kim Molina and Jerald Napoles reveal the loneliness of their characters perfectly before bringing the sizzle and salve of an ideal physical and spiritual relationship with beautiful locations acting as a backdrop.
