For the many people, Mela (Claudine Barretto) is just another airhead brat girl. With her provocative clothing and crass language anyone would easily judge her as nothing. Until she goes steady with a guy who has an equally bad reputation as she has Ryan (Deither Ocampo), who cheats on her. Upon their breakup, Mela diverts her attention to the campus geek Miguel (Rico Yan) who hates a woman like her. Challenged by Miguel’s undeniable ire on her, she aims to make him her man.
Due to her persistence, Miguel takes her as his girlfriend despite her reputation. Mela makes sure to adjust to Miguel’s strict upbringing and changing everything that she used to. For her, everything is worth it as long as she has Miguel by her side. Just as when Mela expects that she finally takes hold of her dream, she learns about the greater obstacle that she has to overcome to finally deserve Miguel.
Yet for Miguel, Mela’s effort will never be good enough, he gets too used in neglecting her. Will there be a happy ending for Mela and Miguel?
