Based on a true story from Hokkaido’s Hokusei Yoichi High School, the first high school in Japan to accept high school dropouts nationwide and the subject of a successful documentary, this drama will follow a former gang member, dropout and graduate of the school who returns as a teacher. We will follow him as he helps graduating students out into the world. The teachers and students will, as you would expect, confront all the issues of youth and society today. At this school, there are no compromises, no lies. This drama will move you as both students and teachers face a variety of issues head on. This is a moving story that is created by people coming together and learning to believe in each other.
