While the love journey of Atty. Tere (Judy Ann Santos) and Doc Philip (Raymart Santiago) is clearly going really sour, the blooming romance between Lena (Chantal Videla) and George (Grae Fernandez) is getting sweeter.
As told in the story of the fantasy drama series titled Starla, Lena and George are two teenagers who grew up together in Barrio Maulap. Living in the same small town, the two started out as schoolmates back when they were kids. Lena hated George at first because she thought that he is one snobbish and delinquent boy. Nevertheless, she eventually saw George’s kind-hearted attitude and, thus, they became friends.
Now that they aren’t kids anymore, it is perfectly obvious that Lena and George are starting to fall in love with each other. However, having exact opposite perspectives in life has led to a conflict in their relationship, even though it hasn’t even officially started yet.
Living in the small town of Barrio Maulap with her elder sister Lolita (Anna Luna), Lena used to think that the future holds nothing greater for her and that she will stay where she is all her life. But then, all those thoughts faded away when she saw the successful Atty. Tere. Seeing how Atty. Tere was able to become one of the most sought-after lawyers, Lena regained her hopes in having a brighter future. She began to dream big once more and told herself that the only way she could reach her goal is by leaving Barrio Maulap and going to Manila.
On the other hand, George is far too different from Lena. Being with his grandfather Mang Apol (Jerry O'Hara), George was contented with having simple barrio life. Like Doc Philip, he believes that leaving their town isn’t the key to being happy. He thinks that everything he needs is in Barrio Maulap, except Lena if she would really leave their town. Thus, he is doing everything to make Lena stay. He began to quit being ‘torpe’ and started to level up in courting Lena. George decided to confess his love for Lena and is making every effort to be accepted by Lena’s elder sister Lolita. He also even toured Lena around Barrio Maulap, aiming to make her special girl see how beautiful and blissful a simple life in their province could be.
Even though Lena clearly feels something special for George too, she tries to conceal it because her ate Lolita doesn’t want her to get into romantic relationships at a young age. Lena also does not want to fall in love so she would not get distracted from her plans in reaching her dreams.
But no matter how complicated things are getting for them, Lena and George still couldn’t hide their true feelings for each other. Will the two young lovers manage to make things work between them? Or will they be just like their idols Atty. Tere and Doc Philip, who fell apart as they mature? Find out in Starla, weeknights on Primetime Bida after FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
