Kung Paano Siya Nawala tells the story of Lio (JM De Guzman), a quiet and withdrawn young man who finds it difficult to connect with other people due to his affliction: face blindness, a cognitive disorder characterized by an inability to recognize faces. But the inhibited Lio finds himself opening up to the world when he falls in love with Shana (Rhian Ramos), a beautiful free spirit who has secrets of her own.
