Plot Edit

Rose (Pauleen Luna) is a bank teller who has kept his relationship with a lowly mechanic, Michael (Rocco Nacino), a secret from his friends and family for over one year. She is afraid of his mother, Marissa (Jaclyn Jose), who has high expectations for her only daughter. However, the couple is forced to reveal the truth to her mother when the result of Rose's pregnancy test comes out positive. Infuriated by the revelation, Marissa forbids her daughter from seeing Michael again. Rose runs away from her mother's home and elopes with Michael.

Unfortunately, Michael suffers serious burns on his face after a freak accident while working on a vehicle. Although Michael recovers, his face is scarred by the burns, which horrifies him. He ends up in a depressed state and pushes Rose away. He refuses to go out of the house and retreats to the bedroom to lock himself away.

Will love remain and stay the same in sickness and in health, `till death do them part?
