Not all superheroes are created equal. Meet Super Nerda, the new heroine set to change the face of superheroes in a two-hour musical production to be staged by Mediartrix of the University of Santo Tomas. Six shows are scheduled on Monday and Tuesday, September 15 and 16.
Super Nerda follows the adventures of ramp model-turned-super heroine, Verna (Anjo Soriano) as she completes the task given to her by a mysterious old lady (Erithe Cordero) to get what she has always wanted--for her parents to be proud of her.
Verna then uses the enchanted piece of lingerie to transform herself into the unconventional, non-stereotypical, and butt-ugly "Super Nerda" (Lhen Hasal) and accomplish her mission of saving three lives in a span of only one week.
Super Nerda has to complete this daunting task or she would never get what she has wants and more so, lose everything she has worked for. The task would've been easy for Verna not until her friend Sue (Gladys Pagdato), who has an axe to grind, together with her loyal accomplice and suitor Emmerjun (Alvin Adriano) finds out her identity and tries to stop her.
Unknowing of Sue's dark plans, Verna continues to save lives and make good deeds, in the end realizing a whole new meaning and purpose in life--not to mention realizing a long-kept feeling for her best friend's older brother Sid (Anjo Ressureccion).
Will Verna be able to accomplish her task and get what she has always wanted? What will she do if she has to choose between her destiny and the man she truly cares for?
