I-Witness / GMA7 documented a nerve-wracking and dazzling real-life reality show, but did not stage it — a public high school did. The school is the only one of its kind, the famed Philippine High School for the Arts in the secluded woods of Mount Makiling in Laguna, the alma mater of such arts luminaries as Raymond Red and Grace Nono.

For the first time in its history, the PHSA called for a live audition of aspirants for 40 annual scholarships, worth 300,00 pesos per student per year.

Howie Severino and his team immersed themselves in the week-long auditions on PHSA’s mountain campus, and focused on the lives of three applicants as they go through an emotional roller-coaster in a tranquil environment. Applicants become friends while competing as rivals for limited spots.

Ziv B. Astronomo is a shy home-taught classical guitarist from Brgy. Pook Rizal, Laguna who lost his mother to breast cancer five (5) years ago. Finally feeling at home in a school, he faces the prospect of rejection because another classical guitarist who is auditioning may be even better than he.
