Conrado considers Jaypee as a heaven-sent opportunity to pass on his legacy to the next generation,while Jaypee thinks he has hit the jackpot in finding the best person to help him win the affection of a girl in school. Both of them are in for a disappointment as their lives begin to unravel before each other’s eyes.
