On her first day as a Product Development Head of Tinapay Corner, Billy (Liza Soberano) wakes up late due to a slight mishap involving Tony (Herbert Bautista) and Monsy (Hero Bautista) last night. As if she’s not already running out of time, fate throws in another obstacle when Tony’s jeepney fails to start. Billy has no choice but to back ride on a tricycle going out of Nueva Valencia. She races with time amidst the city traffic and arrives at the office five minutes late.
With her hair still unfixed and clothes drenched in sweat, Billy faces Gabo (Enrique Gil) and tries to justify her tardiness. She gets to see Gabo’s professional side – strict and unforgiving. He scolds her in front of other people, pointing out the value of every second especially with him. He even calls her incompetent. Gabo turns his back then glances at Billy who is obviously frozen after hearing his insulting words. He demands her to move quickly and head over his office instead of just standing up for nothing. This pushes Billy to deeper embarrassment.
Later, the tension continues inside Gabo’s office. Billy’s failure to present her plan of actions for her department triggers Gabo’s frustrations once again. Her tardiness and unpreparedness prompt Gabo to assume that she is just a mistake he would regret for the rest of his life. An offended Billy imagines herself strangling Gabo while screaming out her anger. Before leaving the office, Billy vows to submit the required tasks and prove herself worthy of the position.
