In this dog-eat-dog world, you either have to stand up and carve a living for yourself or risk getting trampled by others in the rat race called life. This is the dilemma Ditas (Kristine Hermosa) has faced each and every day of her life. Born to a destitute family, Ditas has resigned her self to the fact that her life will be a struggle; but, still having the strong resolve to make it in life, no matter what. As such, Ditas won't let her lowly stature in life hamper dreams of a promising future. She makes a living by selling her babies to the highest bidder, a lucrative job that was problem-free until a well-to-do couple approached her one day and changed the rules of the game.

The picture-perfect couple Rodel (Diether Ocampo) and Fina (Rica Peralejo) are young, good-looking, rich. The couple couldn't wish for anything more since they seemingly have everything anyone could ever want. With one exception. Both Rodel and Fina are eager to start a family; unfortunately for them, it's an impossibility as Fina's medical condition prohibits her from bearing children. When they hear rumors about a certain babymaker, who happens to be Ditas, the couple sees an opportunity to finally fill the void in their lives.

Problems arise when Rodel perceives qualities in Ditas that he deems his wife is lacking. Soon, the casual business deal becomes entangled and a more intimate relationship develop between Rodel and Ditas. But how about Fina? Now, she must do everything to make the family whole again even if means having to beg Rodel for his once undivided love and affection.
