Shirley (Vilma Santos) is a woman who wants to be in control of everything. But in her family, her unwarranted intervention in the lives of her children and their families keeps her emotionally detached from them. Realizing that she has lost the command she once had, she goes to New York to reunite with Mark (Luis Manzano), his estranged gay son who is now suffering from colon cancer.
But Shirley doesn’t know this and living with Mark in New York comes with a cost. She has to live with her son’s lover Noel (John Lloyd Cruz) who is an illegal immigrant. Whenever Mark is not around, Noel makes it a point to tour her around as he tries his best to endure Shirley’s degrading behaviour on him.
Everything is doing right until circumstances forces Shirley to back to the Philippines. Now that she’s back with her family, she realizes that something is wrong-she is not happy. For once in her life, she finally comes to a brave decision that will bring her real happiness.
