Joo Byung-Hee finds his muse in Jungsang High School and dreams of performing in a music festival. They overcome their various economic difficulties to earn themselves the Jungsang High School uniform and finally are able to enter. By taking inspiration from his blossoming relationship, Byung-hee finally finishes his composition for the festival.
