Taiwanese director Cheng Wenteng takes the helm for this lackadaisical coming of age story concerning a popular high school singer songwriter, the newly arrived student at her school, and a mischievous street urchin whose unstable background forces him to fend for himself on the local streets. An angel to her mother, weak-hearted singer Yvette (Enno) is also beloved by the student body. One day, while performing for her classmates, Yvette falls unconscious and is spirited to the nurse's office. There, Yvette and her best friend Wendy (Hannah Han Lin) make the acquaintance of fellow student Jimmy (Bryant Chang) - who has been sent to sick bay with an injured hand. While Wendy immediately falls for Jimmy, he only has eyes for beautiful schoolteacher Miss Xiu (Ke Huanju). Despite the fact that young Jimmy is currently going through a bit of a rough patch, he and Miss Xiu are forced to end their relationship lest she risk losing her job. Later, as Wendy's gaze drifts towards soccer-loving Japanese exchange student Akira (Dean Fujioka), Yvette makes a successful recovery and a desperate young boy must resort to thievery in order to survive.
