Plot Edit

Luis (Joey de Leon) leads a small-time swindling group whose members live under one roof. Included in the group is his adopted son Dodo (Oyo Boy Sotto). At home, Dodo complains to his father that their fraudulent schemes do not bring in a lot of money. He tries to introduce his father to an Internet scam that is sure to earn them millions in cash. However, Luis ignores the suggestion.

With Dodo being persistent, Luis begins to show interest to the Internet scam and even suggests of running the scheme without splitting the money with the rest of the group. They devise a plan to make the other members leave the house. Luis suggests that Dodo pretend to have a terminal illness which would force their organization to close down. Lena (Ciara Sotto) invites a street evangelist, Brother Al (Allan K), to the house to cure Dodo through prayers and Bible study.

Dodo apologizes to his father Luis.

After a couple of Bible studies, the members of the group develop a genuine change of heart, including Luis. Meanwhile, Lena expresses her desire not to continue their fraudulent schemes anymore. She meets up with her client one last time to return the money. Dodo becomes furious after finding out that Lena had returned the money to the client. He blames the Word of God and expresses that Brother Al should have been thrown out of the house a long time ago. Out of anger, Luis accidentally reveals that his son is faking the illness. With his secret disclosed, Dodo decides to leave the organization to join another swindling group. After a failed scheme, Dodo is placed in jail.

Brother Al also disappears from the house the next day, leaving behind a stack of adult magazines. Luis concludes that Brother Al is a fake evangelist, but assures the members of his group that the Word of God is real. He decides to transform their house into a bible study center.

After being released from jail, Dodo returns to his adoptive father to apologize for his wrongdoings.
