In the movie, written and directed by JP Laxamana, Julia takes on the role of a sex worker named Candy, while Carlo breathes life into the character of a school teacher, a virgin, who becomes her client.

He meets and falls in love with Candy, but the complexity of her job and his status in life cause conflict in what would otherwise be an ordinary love story. 

In the trailer, Carlo's character asks Candy: "Kung hindi ka naging ganyan, ano ka?" To which, Julia's Candy replies, "Ito lang 'yung gusto kong gawin sa buhay. Lahat ng gusto ko, nakukuha ko sa ganitong trabaho. Higit sa lahat, dito ako magaling, 'di ba? Maliban na lang kung may huhugot sa akin sa ganitong mundo."


Reflecting, Carlo's character also mentions, "Ang tanda-tanda ko na, pero wala pa rin akong nararating sa buhay... Bakit ba kasi hindi ako pinanganak na mayaman?"

In one scene, he tells her, "Ang mahal mong mahalin."
