MNL 143 mostly details the random experiences and encounters of Ramil (played by Allan Paule), a minivan driver on his final trip before leaving Manila to become one of the millions of overseas workers in the Middle East. Every day for five years, Ramil has plied the Buendia-Fairview route in hopes of encountering Mila, the woman he left behind to make his fortune abroad. Hardly the most efficient way to search for someone – especially in Manila – but we nevertheless believe Ramil is the kind of guy who would actually try.
Putot, a young boy, lives in a squatter colony by the sea. He takes care of his mentally- ill father and ekes out a living selling mussels. He meets Mayang, a mysterious young girl with secrets of her own.
