Synopsis

Ligaya (Roces) is a veteran prostitute whose name means "joy", and is ironically tired and unhappy with her lifestyle. Having saved enough money, she decides to leave whoring for good, but love unexpectedly comes her way in the form of a sincere and honest farmer called PoldĂ­ng (Arcilla). The farmer, who falls madly in love with her, is Ligaya's ticket to a decent, respectable life.

Roces' oft-quoted line from the film is "Ligaya ang itawag mo sa akin, 'yan ang trabaho ko, nagbibigáy-ligaya." ("Call me 'Joy,' that's my job, giving joy"). It is often used in a humorous context, where the speaker parodies the catty attitude of a prostitute advertising her ability to give "pleasure".
