Dina Bonnevie stars in this iconic coming of age story about a girl named “Nene” who becomes a woman, lover and mother when she reaches the tender age of fourteen.
Nene becomes overly conscious in grooming herself into a grown woman, now that she’s fourteen years old. Turning down girly games and trading her makeshift dolls into lovely dresses. Nene feels that this is just the beginning of all the changes destined in her life.
But only one hot carefree summer brings in the biggest impact on Nene’s life as she finds herself entangled in a complicated three angled relationship between her new grownup childhood friends: Albert (Alfie Anido) and Gabby (Gabby Concepcion). Guided by raging hormones and juvenile instincts. Nene’s supposed to be sweet fourteen lifestyle suddenly deflates into a mere serious and bittersweet experience.
