Yvette is a literally fainthearted schoolgirl songster whose poetic soul makes her the apple of her mother's eye and popular throughout the student body. Overexerting herself while performing at a school concert, Yvette collapses and is sent to the sick bay. Reviving with best friend Wendy by her side, she witnesses the arrival of fellow student Jimmy, who's injured his hand, and his beloved, schoolteacher Miss Xiu. The comely teacher has to end her affair with Jimmy or lose her job. Miss Xiu is prepared to move on, but the smitten schoolboy is going through the emotional ringer. All this makes Jimmy oblivious to the interest of girls his own age. Wendy is attracted to the lovestruck boy, but will clearly go with soccer-obsessed Japanese exchange student Akira if he makes the first move.
