A group of lazy, ignorant highschool students, in no rush to graduate, have settled into life at their private school, paid by aloof parents, where they have bonded as a family and are cared for by school attendant Mother Hafize who has accepted them as her real sons. Their kingdom over the school is challenged by a new vice principal who, despite his warm hearted nature, takes on the role of tough disciplinarian and becomes the butt of their tricks and jokes as he prepares them for life.
