Tonya is a simple girl who lives a quiet & contented life in Vigan. She grew up with her uncle Cesar/Sarsi, who owns and manages a funeral home. Kenneth on the other hand is an impulsive guy from Manila who always seems to get on the wrong side of his father. Kenneth gets so upset after learning that his love interest Nikki was paired-up by his father to his older brother Ramon. While nursing his broken heart, Kenneth fortuitously meets Tonya. A car accident which kills a young lady changes Tonya's life. She is pushed into hiding after being pursued by the young lady's gangster boyfriend on a mistaken conclusion that she caused her death. Tonya's uncle Cesar/Sarsi decides to take her to Manila. And to keep Tonya safer from her pursuers, Uncle Cesar/Sarsi and his gay friends help Tonya disguise herself as a cross dresser by the name of Tonette. They take her to Club Love, a club with a top class act that features musical numbers performed by talented transvestites. As it turns out, Club Love is managed by Kenneth's aunt who recently hires him as a co-manager. Will Kenneth recognize Tonette as Tonya, the girl he met in Vigan? Or will he see her as nothing but a drag performer?
Tonette was walking on her way to the parlor one night when, suddenly, a group of drinking men starts making fun of her. Luckily, Kenneth saves her from these rude men and gives her a ride home. Tonette's uncle, decides that Tonette should stay in Club Love for her safety. Vodka, Club Love's star performer envies Tonette for becoming the new drag queen. He gets very insecure and is disappointed when he finds out that Tonette will be staying with them in their room for the meantime. For him the room is too small for the two of them. Vodka annoys Tonette by making fun of her. This pushes Mama Marita, owner of the Club Love, to transfer Tonette to another room. Kenneth and Tonette now become roommates. Meanwhile, Sonny Boy is still eager to find Tonya. Polly, Tonette's bestfriend, decides to follow Tonya to Manila.
