Lost in Transit is set in the Philippines in the late 1970s. It is a universal story – a girl from a small town who dreams of going to the big city to become a star. Mia is allured by the showman Robert to become one of his dancers. She leaves her lover Sam to join the cabaret, but soon finds out that she has to make some hard choices. How much is she willing to sacrifice in order to achieve her dreams? Sam tries to save her from the vice trade, but his efforts end in tragedy.
