EDeejay Sanchez is looking for the answer to the age-old question, ―what are you going to do with your life?‖ To his mother Corazon, Deejay is already on his way to becoming a nurse, but to his cousin Mae and his best friends Ano and Nico, Deejay’s real talents lay in his artistic abilities as a painter. His life seems so clear to everyone—well, everyone except for Deejay, who decides to enter into an art contest to prove to his mother and himself, that art is what he should pursue.
