Rufa Mae Quinto, Eugene Domingo, Pokwang, and CandyPangilinan are friends for life and death in the riotous comedy Apat Dapat,Dapat Apat.
Their friendship starts with a life-threatening event. Thatday, the young Brite (Rufa Mae), Dolly (Eugene), Gay (Pokwang) and Res (Candy)are riding on the same bus that nearly falls off a cliff. Thankfully, theyare miraculously saved and the four young girls vow to stay friends forlife...and in death! Together forever!
Several years later, we find the four still very muchfriends with each other in a lower middle-class barangay. Brite now owns afuneral parlor, Dolly is a struggling piano teacher living with her good-for-nothing boyfriend, Gay is a separated MMDA and Res, is now a full-timehousewife living with her two kids and perpetually bum husband, Totoy Bato (DJDurano).
Life has been so hard that Brite suggests they work abroadto earn more money. The three of them agree but Res is quitehesitant about the idea. Yet perhaps it is their fate to stick together. Res'scorrupt and "pasaway" parents and brothers are all locked up in a jail, so shehas no options left but to join her friends to bail out her family. Totoy Bato allowshis wife Res to go with her friends in one condition: that she goes back to him safelyafter six months of working abroad.
Upon arriving in Hong Kong, their employers pick them up.Brite has a handsome employer who asks her to care for an old bedridden ladywho's surprisingly the girlfriend of her employer. Gay has an Indian employerwho assigns her to wash his family's turbans. Gay at first thinks it is such aneasy job until she finds out that the turbans are exaggeratedly long, enough tobury her alive.
Dolly has a German employer who asks her to baby-sit histhree children with German measles. And Res has an Asian employer who,unfortunately, locks her inside a room, never gives her any food, andphysically abuses her.
Every Sunday, OFWs meet in a park. That day, thethree friends wait for Res, but their friend doesn't show up. They have no idea whathappened to her until they find out that Res was killed. Starving for severaldays, Res ate all her amo's goldfish and as punishment, she was beaten todeath. Afraid that Totoy Bato would kill them if he finds out about Res's fate,they decide to bring Res home "alive"at all costs!
Will the three friends get away with their modus operandi?Will Res finally rest in peace? As things get topsy-turvy, the storygets even more riotously funny with Brite, Dolly, Gay and their friend, Res.
