Sally Malasmas (Toni Gonzaga
) is a Care Officer at the National Statistics Office. Her parents and only sister have all migrated to the United States to embrace the “American Dream.” But for Sally, the Philippines is where she wants to be. Will Derby (Sam Milby
) is a dashing vice-consul from the United States Embassy in Manila. He grew up in North Dakota where very few Filipinos live. But Will is not an American. He's a Filipino adopted by an American couple. The only reason he’s in the Philippines is because he promised his mother to search for his real parents.
Sally is forced to apply for a US Visa because her sick mom who refuses to come home needs care. While applying, she meets Will Derby. Sally feels it's her lucky day! But Will thinks Sally does not have enough ties to the Philippines that will make her come back. He denies her visa. It isn't Sally's lucky day anymore.
Sally is definitely insulted. Too bad she initially thought he was gorgeous. To make things worse, Will decides to finally try searching for his parents. He goes to the NSO to look for his original birth certificate. Fate plays a trick and Sally and Will meet again. She seeks revenge and makes him wait all afternoon for his document. But her ploy backfires when her boss catches her. Now, she's forced to help him. After giving it some thought, Sally sees the opportunity to use Will to finally get a visa.
