It’s year 2012 and the problems of the professional students at the University Belt have remained the same: The so-called “Four P’s”: Pera (Money), Parents, Puso (Affairs of the Heart or simply Love)and Professors (Academics).
Around these basic problems will revolve the lives of our lead characters:
TONTON (Arron Villaflor)– A good-looking 19-year old boy in pursuit of his biological father’s (Bobby Yan) affection. His mother is already in the USA with her common-law American husband while his father has a family of his own already but is presently tending to Tonton’s school needs with a heavy heart.
RICHARD (Michael Renz)– A well-off spoiled brat, born with the silver spoon in his mouth, so-to-speak but who finds approval in his dorm mates in their lowly dorm by treating them generously to drinking sprees and pigging out. He’s carrying an affair with his liberated young professor girlfriend (Pamela Sue).
HECTOR (Carlo Lazerna)– A meek small-town boy who is pressured by his poor parents to finish acourse which is not to his liking and mental capacity. His gay professor (Greg Calasito) takes advantage of his predicament by giving him an indecent proposal. To his credit, he learns to follow his heart in handling such tests.
RUBEN (Ryan Kevin) – A street-wise, financially and academically-challenged loser who survives through guts, naivete and purity of his heart. An odd damsel (Nadine Lustre) comes to his life and somehow serves as an inspiration for him to give up some of his felonious habits and make the best out his limited personal resources.
IGGIE (Arvic Rivero) – The group’s mascot and toy—loud, persistent, small and terrible, jack-of-all-trades, master of none. He tries to be smooth but his natural coarseness always gets in the way with disastrous results. He pretends to be a Romeo, but loses his Juliet (Mayton) to a best friend.
Through all their trials, they prevail by finding strength in each other’s friendship.
