Michael worked as a dancer in Japan when he was still a minor, using a fictitious name and a forged passport. He makes sure his recruiter doesn’t find out he’s not a first-timer to Japan like the rest of the guys. Benjo seeks to escape a cruel stepfather and find his missing older brother, a musician turned illegal alien in Japan. Alvin is Didi’s lover, who openly expresses his affections for his benefactor while hoping to make his own money in Japan.

The two members who share choreographic duties, Jake and Rico, quickly develop a secret romance. Problem is, Jake lives with his devoted girlfriend Jenny (Niña Jose), who supports him financially. On top of his romantic quandary, Jake is soon discovered to have a heart ailment, jeopardizing his chances of joining the group’s trip to Japan.

As a former Japayuki himself, Didi knows a stint in Japan hardly guarantees a financial windfall for the group. So he enlists the members in a networking company that has been giving him ample dividends. Unfortunately, the company collapses without warning. It ruins Didi and threatens to dissolve not just his relationship with Alvin but the group itself. Violence erupts on the eve of their trip, which could shatter the dreams of the Dreamguyz.
