Zaldy (JM) and Jex (Janine) work as chefs in an airline catering services company. Jex has a longtime crush on Zaldy and not wasted time asking him out. But to her disappointment, Zaldy keeps rejecting her invitation.   

As Jex leaves the company to look for greener pastures, the two eventually lose touch with each other only to reconnect years later after failed relationships. 

It doesn’t take long before they eventually start dating. As the pandemic was brewing, the two decide to push through with their planned trip to Baguio. With their more-than-friends, less-than-lovers status, the two find themselves stuck together indefinitely in the city as Luzon is put into lockdown.   

How did the two eventually find love in each other? What challenges did they face after being forced to stay together during the pandemic?
