Bert is given money for not telling his boss' wife about the infidelity. The family driver becomes close to Chona (Rio Locsin), the wife of his boss. Bert realizes how respectable Chona is.

But Bert cannot tell Chona about the infidelity since he badly needs this job to support his own wife Lani (Ana Capri). Conflict arises when Lani suspects her husband of having an affair because he often comes home during the wee hours.
