The movie, titled Starting Over Again is about Ginny, played by Toni, who is head-over-heels in love with her college professor Marco, Piolo’s character. The two eventually got together after Ginny’s graduation but for an unknown reason, Ginny leaves Marco.
The two crossed paths again but Marco is already with another woman, played by Iza Calzado, Ginny regretting her decision to leave him.
