Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) and Basha (Bea Alonzo) have been together forever.
Their love story begin when they first meet as students at a university: Popoy was majoring in Engineering while Basha was a freshman in Architecture. Eversince, they've been inseparable and did everything together— eating, studying and/or attending parties. Both their families loved them, they shared mutual friends and even eventually worked in the same firm. Every single component of their lives revolved around each other. So naturally, everyone assumed that they inevitably get married someday with Architect Basha designing and planning their dream house while Engineer Popoy builds it. Everything could not be more perfect.
At least that's what Popoy thought. What he does not know is that Basha has something evil instill for him.
All the planning and dreaming eventually take a toll on Basha. Not only was she tired of trying to carve her own mark in the firm, but she also grew weary of Popoy always having to fix things for her. She suddenly tells him that she wants to resign and move to a smaller firm where she can be given a bigger chance to design on her own, which completely blindsides her bewildered beau. Basha informs him of the problem that has been culminating inside her for the past year: the real reason why she wants to leave the company is that she is tired of Popoy and their relationship. She feels hindered by Popoy's constant attention and thinks that she hasn't been given the opportunity to decide and plan for herself because Popoy already did everything. Popoy is speechless and devastated. That same night, Basha breakups up with him, reasoning that she needs the space to grow on her own.
Not knowing how to pick himself up after the love of his life leaves him, Popoy struggles to live his new life alone. Meanwhile, Basha follows through with her plans to resigns and transfer to a smaller firm where she begins to feel the freedom she's been longing for. Popoy and Basha try to live without each other but the ties that bind them make it difficult for either to completely move on, especially when their families and friends are constant reminders of the promises and dreams they had during their happier days.
Slowly, Popoy learns to pick up the pieces and discovers a life that there is life outside Basha; while Basha's finds her solitary journey harder than she had imagined, especially when she sees Popoy dating another girl. Although a part of her wants to get him back, she takes a step back and reminds herself that the decision to terminate the relationship was hers alone.
Opportunity knocks when Popoy's aunt commissions them to build her house together. After initially feeling awkward around each other, Popoy and Basha eventually warm up towards one another especially after memories of the five years they spent together resurfaces. Slowly and unconsciously, they fall into their old routines and find themselves enjoying each other's company once again. Both realize how much they've missed each other, as well as acknowledge how much they've changed.
But Popoy knows all too well that giving in would mean going back to how they were before. And he's way too scared to get in the way of Basha's growth once again, especially now that he has seen that she can do it alone.
