Roxanne and Will had been in a relationship for four years now but they have yet to work in a project. But both have been dreaming of doing a movie together or an interesting TV project where they can show their chemistry as a love team, aside from their acting talent.

But because of a recent heartache in her personal life toughened her and made her wiser when it comes to love. What keeps her busy is managing their family-owned business, a resort called Beach Placid.

Will, on the other hand, plays the handsome German-Filipino named Viktor, who loves adventure and has his own company named "Green Technology" which is focused in developing business ventures in different countries. Viktor is a prized catch. He is rich, athletic, a music lover but remains a simple man who just loves to explore the world. He is also in the process of putting together the missing pieces of his life.

The exciting journey to love of Jennifer and Viktor started when the latter decided to fly to Santa Fe to look for his biological mother which he has yet to meet and to discovered his Filipino roots as well.

Viktor and Jennifer will bump into each other in a rather odd situation but due to Viktor's insistence and persistence, he will stop at nothing to win the heart of Jennifer. He was captivated by Jennifer's charm. The movie follows the blossoming of the romance between two individuals whose traits are poles apart.

The idea to shot the movie in Santa Fe came from director Bona Fajardo himself who discovered the beach last year.
