Gilbert Perez directs the script written by Jullian Abuda about a man who has to win the heart of the kid of the woman he has fallen in love with.
A boy and a girl make an album of their families and the family they want to have. But the characters on their album are paper cut outs from magazines and their own drawing. In spite of this, both still look happy and innocently in love.
With bowls of porridge, the bunch of kids swear to become family to each other. The gang is obviously the least wanted by foster parents and is in danger of reaching adulthood in the orphanage. The little girl gets adopted the following day. The little boy goes after her to say goodbye and give her the album they made. The rest of the gang follows him and they meet an exciting misadventure that includes cows, crops, the authorities, a dead man, a sinking ship, and the jungle called Metro Manila where they start their new life.
Nymfa (Pokwang) is a staff of a make-up and prosthetics artist. Macho (Empoy Marquez) is a lover boy. Macho (Mura), well, not much has changed in him since he was little. The little boy is now known as Adonis (Vhong Navarro). Together with his gang from the orphanage, they bought three food kiosks that transform to make Foodash. It is their humble source of living.
Blaming himself for his friends’ misfortune, Adonis doubts his own capabilities and always bows to his friends’ wishes. He desires only one thing, to be loved and to have a family of his own. But he doesn’t know how to get it until fate intervenes and brings Athena to Adonis’ life. They get along well and his feelings for this lovely and very caring woman just grew. However, he realizes that the only way to her heart is through Atong, her son.
For Adonis, challenging isn’t enough to describe Atong. Aside from being mischievous, he also demands one great quality from any man who wishes to have his mother: he has to come from a big family.
Desperate to have the woman and the kid he has already learned to love, Adonis does the greatest performance of his life. Using Nymfa’s props, costumes and make-up, he creates his own family in himself. Adonis becomes Tita Barbara, Lola Paulina, and cousin Apol Dayap. His ‘family’ wins Athena and Atong for Adonis. But his lie won’t last long. Athena discovers his betrayal and throws Adonis out of their lives.
Is there still hope for their funny yet poignant story? Will they still become a family?
