Plot: (source: wikipedia)

The story takes off from the death of the reigning biritera, which sends Mr. D (Ryan Eigenmann), a respected talent manager, into a frantic search for an immediate replacement.

Upon receiving an invitation to judge in a provincial singing search, Mr. D also brings along Andrei (Dennis Trillo), who then finds himself drawn to one particular contestant, Roseanne (Roseanne Magan). However, Roseanne ends up losing the competition to Barbie (Sweet Ramos), Roseanne’s rival, much to Andrei’s disappoint.

But no one is more disappointed than Roseanne, who wants to succeed as a singer so she can help her adoptive mother Remy (Angelika dela Cruz). Remy, on the other hand, disapproves of her daughter’s dream and would rather see her concentrate on her education.

Unknown to them, Andrei uploads a video of Roseanne taken during the competition. As fate would have it, the video goes viral making Roseanne an instant internet sensation, and attracting talent scouts including Mr. D.

Remy, however, remains adamant in discouraging Roseanne to pursue her dream of becoming a professional singer. But despite how firm she was, Remy finally gives in when Jo (Rich Asuncion), Roseanne’s aunt, turns up after recognizing Roseanne as her sister Carmela’s (Claudine Barretto) daughter. Jo convinces Remy to allow Roseanne to try her luck in the industry making Remy believe that Jo has Roseanne’s best interest at heart.

As Roseanne begins her quest towards becoming a full-fledged biritera, Remy becomes more concerned of her daughter’s welfare as Jo takes over Roseanne’s life. Andrei also shares the same sentiment, as he feels guilty for prodding Mr. D into managing Roseanne, who seems to be taking on too much too soon only to become successful.
