John Maverick Paulino (Pau) is a breadwinner. After the tragic death of his father, he dropped his chance to be an engineer. He looked for a job and replaced his father's role in their family. He takes care of his bereaved and depressed mother, and he makes sure that his sister can continue her studies. Falling in love? It's not his priority.

Alessandra Marie de Guinto (Alie) is trying to live her life again. She dreams of reviving their family's business. She makes a bucket list of things she wanted to accomplish just to forget the demons from her past. Still, she can't help but to continuously blame herself because of what happened two years ago.

Unexpectedly, their lives intertwined just like two shooting stars in a dark vast sky. They started to see life differently as their feelings to each other grow continuously . . . until some threatening incidents started to occur reminding them both of their tragic histories.

Will they be like those shooting stars---stars that fall and cross briefly in the sky, and after that, they never meet again? Or will they choose to be a star for each other that shines all the more in darkness?

With suspenseful elements, Look for the Stars is a sincere story with unexpected poignancy that reminds us that even the worst kinds of situation end at some point . . . and that things will eventually change. It offers a warm story of love, healing, and finding happiness in the simplest of things.
