Kita Kita tells the story of Lea, a Filipino tour guide in Japan who acquired temporary blindness after getting too stressed over her ex-fiance. She later on met fellow Filipino and charmer Tonyo who befriended her, took care of her, and made her feel special in every way he can. The two eventually fell in love with each other.

The film has grossed P100 million on its first week and P240 million the following week. On a modest budget of P10 million, Kita Kita got a worldwide gross of P320 million; making it the highest-grossing Philippine independent film.
