Lo Kim-wah directs this heartwarming tale about pucky lass Brendy Lee (Theresa Lee Yee-hung), who agrees to offers to teach a junior high school class for three months after her close friend suffers a nervous breakdown. Instead of beaming young cherubs, the class, of course, is filled with budding criminals. When conventional means of maintaining order in class fail, she takes a fire hose to them. While this doesn't lead to lawsuits or criminal action, Lee is chewed out by the principal. She changes her tactics and decides to become the best darned teacher she can be. She shows her charges that their favorite pop star is really a drug-addled snot; helps a shy student summon the courage to ask out his love, and show another student that he really can walk away from his triad friends.
