Summary: Episode 1: In the fictional town of Lagros, the idealistic new Mayor faces some very real problems. Mayor Joseph Santiago discovers a bunch of wayward employees have turned the municipal hall into a boarding house and, worse, have been making under the table deals at every turn. His efforts to fight corruption–both petty and large scale-are blocked by a political dynasty led by Governor Antonio Rubio and Congressman Anton Rubio
Summary: Episode 2. The episode unveils Mayor Joseph Santiago's past-he saw his father murdered on the streets of Lagros. His father was a journalist and newspaper publisher who exposed wrongdoings in the province. The episode also digs deeper into the psyche of Governor Antonio Rubio, who has found creative ways to earn from every local government project, whether road and bridge construction or furniture supplies in the capitol
Summary: Episode 3. Fate brings Mayor Joseph Santiago back to his old elementary school where the opposite of progress has taken effect. He encounters sluggish, malnourished students who have to use umbrellas inside their leaking classrooms and finds that several grades are being taught in the same room and at the same time by just one teacher! The Mayor brings up the sorry state of the province's public schools during a forum attended by Governor Antonio Rubio, causing the tension between them to take a very nasty turn. In the meantime, the Mayor's Chief of Staff, Karen very literally falls for the young Congressman Anton Rubio
