Do opposites really attract? A very conservative rich guy falls in love with a tomboy who has a totally different background from him. Andrew, a young and competent businessman, is awaiting his upcoming marriage with Magarita, an obedient and lovely woman. One day, Andrew’s car collides with Anya’s truck and they get into a shouting match. But when Anya finds out that Andrew is an important client of her company, she invites him to dinner. While having dinner together they find they are attracted to each other. But there are many obstacles for them along the way to bring their love to fruition.
 Anya’s family is composed of three generations - Anya, her mother, and her grandmother, which makes this film different from other romantic comedies.
 Joyce Bernal, who started her career as an editor, is an up-and-coming director in the Philippines. Because There’s You was lauded by critics and at the same time was an economic success. (Lim Sung-min)
