Being orphans and being the only living immediate family. Cris was very productive at first, concerned at the status of Ara. Cris himself was already contemplating suicide when Ara gave the news. But being a very loving sibling, Cris had no choice but to allow his sister her dream wedding.
And here begins Cris' non-stop peddling along the Elliptical Road and at the park of Circle. He manipulates all his friends and acquaintances, in order to meet his deadline to raise the amount to buy the wedding gown for his sister.

Miguel, who is hopelessly attached to his friend Paolo, who is dying of AIDS, jaded UP student Shandy who's men in her life don't have the balls to stand up to their love for her; sex scandal vcd collector and call center representative Justin, who wants women of higher social status than him, a migrant from the same province as Rod and Miguel: a jeepney barker with a very dark past, Unyak, and sidewalk vendors Jenny and Jeri who are out to eliminate each other.
When all else fails, Cris holds on to his bottom line, to sell and to buy the best wedding gown abd give the best wedding for his sister. However, cris' schemes seemed to backfire and lives become at stake, including his. Only when remorse is attained will forgoveness happen and redemption will come to make their lives turn full circle in these turbulent times in the Philippine republic.
