Marco (Dingdong Dantes), a photographer, along with his sister (Isabel Oli) and their cousin Duke (Jojo Alejar) are on a vacation in an old sleepy town. While strolling around town a mysterious woman is hit by a van while trying to save Marco's life. He visits the woman and is drawn to her granddaughter Lianne (Karylle). Marco and Lianne start to develop a relationship but recent events cause Marco to be withdrawn. He suddenly finds himself haunted by a deep feeling of loneliness.
His yearning leads to a telephone conversation with Divina (Iza Calzado), the daughter of a haciendero. They find solace in each other. Divina lives in the past (1957) while Marco lives in the present (2006).
