Selya (Rosanna Roces), schoolteacher in a small Philippine town, has an affair with the reluctant Bobby (Gardo Versoza), who leaves town one day. To follow him, Selya quits her job but fails to find him. Relocating at a village he visits, she moves into a boarding house of gay Ramon (Ricky Davao), lover of a married man with two children. Selya doesn't know Ramon's background, so when he asks her to become his wife, she agrees. The wedding night is a disaster, as Ramon fails to perform. Meanwhile, Bobby turns up, and Selya, discovering the truth about Ramon, is soon back in Bobby's arms. Explicit sex scenes resulted in problems with Philippine censors. Shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival.
