Commander Anita Flores is a quiet leader who has earned rank and respect among military officials. One day, memories of her younger days flash back. Twelve-year-old Anita lives in Obando, Bulacan and dreams of becoming a soldier someday. Life is routine, simple, and peaceful in the barrio. Suddenly, everything changes when the beautiful Pilar arrives in town. Years ago, Pilar left behind a romance with Anita’s uncle Oscar, and the village whispered rumors of her illegal abortion abroad. Now, the brazen Pilar is back as a businesswoman with whom little Anita fell in love. Determined to one day marry her, Anita musters up the courage to speak to Pilar, and the friendly woman befriends the young girl.
