Synopsis:

Lefty sees himself as the poorest high school student in Taipei. To make some money, he plans to steal the abandoned Dr. Sun Yat-Sen statue in the school storage room. Lefty plots, but he never sees his rival,
Sky coming. Sky also considers himself as the poorest high school student in Taipei. He has the same plan in mind to steal Dr. Sun Yat-Sen for his own sake, but he also never sees Lefty coming.

When two teams of Taipei's poorest high school students meet on campus one night, a war erupts. This is a war of losers and a war eventually makes both Lefty and Sky question their destined poverty and social class. "Not the statue but something more substantial we have to claim." Finally, this time on the quiet night campus the seeds of revolution planted by Dr. Sun decades ago may get to sprout.
