School Service Movie Plot Summary
The start of the movie shows a young girl Maya (Celine Juan) walking in the street in her province when a school service stops beside her and offers her to bring her home. Without her knowledge, she was abducted by a syndicate led by Nanay Rita (Ai Ai delas Alas), and was brought to Manila. There, Maya learned that Nanay Rita is making up stories so she can easily beg money from people in the streets.
Maya also learned that there are other young children like her that Nanay Rita has been using to beg. As a subplot, Nanay Rita has a sickly father (Joe Gruta), a gay brother Roberto (Joel Lamangan), who had conflicts with his lover Kiko (Kevin Sagra).
