La Lingerie

Synopsis

This story is about four young women.  Their lives and their loves tied together by a common thread --- lingerie.

Miu, Donut, Celine and CC come from four different walks of life.  Yet they always seem to hang out at the same place, a sexy lingerie shop where Donut works.  Miu works for the Research and Development division of a Lingerie company.  She's been an over achiever all her life academically and career-wise, yet possessing a failing grade in romance.  She recently moves into the house of her deceased, unmarried old maid of an  aunt.  In her room she sees glimpses of what could become her future, that of a successful career woman who dies a virgin.  Just like her aunt's drawer full of fabulous lingerie and underwear, never to grace the sights of a man to share her life with.  This epiphany of hers brings about a resolve to finally find someone to fall in love with for the first time.  And with it comes droves of suitors of all shapes and sizes, from a rich playboy, a nerdy genius, a bank manager to a self proclaimed "love expert" Lucas who seems to have ulterior motives behind his pursuit of  Miu.  She needs to rely on her three close and romantically experienced  friends to find her way out of this labyrinth.  Yet these three "consultants of love" seem to have hit rough patches of their own.

Miu's cousin Donut seems to only attract and take interest in mature men, until she finds herself hotly pursued by the son of her current boyfriend. Donut's loyal client CC works at a night club and has seen it all and conquered all types of men.  She flexes her skills in bed but knows better than to use real feelings with any of her johns, until sweet and unassuming Eugene  shows up and gets her to fall madly in love. Miu and Donut's neighbor Celine is a stewardess.  She has a rich and kind boyfriend and is very close to her lifelong goal of marrying into a wealthy and famous family. But her world is shaken up by the appearance of a poor but sincere suitor, forcing her to try out on making him her "kept man."

As it turns out, Miu's pure and unadulterated views on love gives Lucas a reason to devote himself into landing her the perfect man --- himself.  Donut decides she doesn't want to  break up  someone's family and seeks love elsewhere with another mature man.  CC learns  that love is blind the painful way, by losing everything she owned, including her unexpectedly romantic heart  to a clever thief -- her seemingly kind-hearted new boyfriend.  And while Celine's dreams of marrying rich remains firm, she has switched gears and will stick by and  wait for her poor lover's career to blossom one day
