Kumiko Yamaguchi, a rookie teacher nicknamed Yankumi, is appointed to be in charge of a high school class full of troublemakers and punks. Dressed in jerseys and looking dull, Yankumi finds it not so hard to tame the kids --she comes from a yakuza family. Though assiduously hiding her family background in order to keep her teaching career, Yankumi never allows bullying and always helps the weak. Down the road, by experiencing how she resolves problems with her dutiful soul, justice and love, Yankumi wins the rebellious punks' affections.
