Baste is a visitor in the United States from equatorial Philippines. Baste won his ticket to the United States in a TV contest and was in fact meant to go to Los Angeles. Some booking errors took him to New York instead, much to his disappointment, because he is obsessed with getting to California not just for a lark but to look for his long-lost mom, whom he last heard to be having the time of her life in the sunny state.
In New York, Baste meets the rebellious Natalie (Jennylyn), the high-strung Albert (Marvin), and screwball Polly (Jolina). His Philippine-acquired angst gets entangled with theirs and those of their families and friends.
