Synopsis

In the pressure-cooker environment of Hong Kong’s education system, students grapple with a relentless barrage of exams and mind-numbing lectures. The strain becomes so overwhelming that it leads many students down the path of rebellion. Mr. Tai (Lui Wai-hung) is a dedicated, albeit nerdy, high school biology teacher who finds himself with his hands full, contending with a group of troublesome teenagers. These unruly students go to great lengths to make Mr. Tai’s life a living nightmare, often with comically disastrous consequences.

Amidst this chaos, Ye Feng plays the role of the father of the protagonist. He inadvertently gets caught up in the raucous antics and pandemonium that unfold within the school. This film marked Ye Feng’s final appearance in cinema.
