VICTOR “BANGIS” LUALHATI (Paulo Avelino), a hardworking family man and a former professional boxer turned seaman, comes across a message to his wife Juliana (Kim Chiu) from an unknown man who is inviting Juliana for a meetup. Because of his suspicion, he follows Juliana and finds out that she is having an affair with her boss. Juliana confesses but blames Victor for everything…from the death of their first son to Victor’s failed promises as a husband. But Victor discovers that it’s impossible for Juliana and the boss to have an affair because the boss is a gay man. Victor realizes that there is a deeper reason for his wife’s infidelity.
As Victor goes into the rabbit hole and investigates who Juliana’s paramour is, he starts to learn more about his wife – inside the Juliana he loved and married is a manipulative woman. More importantly, he also discovers things about himself and his shortcomings he never knew existed.
As Victor picks up the pieces of his broken life, will he choose to move on and start again or wallow in pain and anger? Will he fight for the love that destroyed him? Or will he learn to surrender to rebuild himself and be happy again? In the middle of the greatest fight of his life, how will Victor prove his worth as a father and as a man? Will Victor and Juliana be able to go separate ways if there is love and a child that connects them?
