Bona is a young woman who decides to abandon her family to become an alalay (girl Friday) to Gardo, a movie bit player and stuntman whom she idolizes. She joins him on location shootings, cooks his food, heats the water for his bath, and even accepts his flings with other women. One night, Gardo asks Bona for a massage, which ends in casual lovemaking. Meanwhile, Bona's father dies of a heart attack, and she is blamed by her brother for the death. Gardo then meets Katrina, a millionaire's widow, who asks him to migrate with her to the United States. He grabs the offer. Bona pleads with Gardo not to go, because she now has nothing to go back to, but Gardo is unmoved. Desperate, Bona reaches for a cauldron of boiling water and douses it on the unsuspecting Gardo.
