Twelve year old Maxi lives with his widower father and two older brothers in the slums of Manila. His mother has passed away, leaving the male contingent of his family to turn to petty crime to earn a better living. Meanwhile, Maxi takes on the role of surrogate mother by cooking, cleaning, and sewing for them. Things get complicated when Maxi meets and falls for Victor, a rookie cop who has an axe to grind with the local criminals. As events start to spiral out of control, Maxi has to make a choice; either to stay loyal to the family he mothers, or to Victor, the object of his affection.
