[ Story ]
Miho Sakai (Yoko Namikawa) is a daytime student who wonders who occupies her desk during night school hours, and decides to send the student a letter of encouragement.
Kenta Namiki (Kozaburo Onogawa), who works at an auto repair shop, finds Miho's letter. The boys are incensed by it, saying that day students sponge on their parents for an education, yet look down on working students. Kenta answers in his weak English, "I present pubic hair to you with my heart." This causes pandemonium in the classroom when Miho receives it.
The day boys class consider this an insult. Hiroto Miyagawa (lchiro Ogura) decides to raid the night students and Yuji Shibata (Saburo Shinoda) offers to go with him. Outnumbered, they fare badly. Yuji manages to escape before class begins but Hiroto barely manages to get away with Taeko (Eiko Yanami), a night school girl's help.
To get even with the daytime students, Taeko seduces Hiroto, a boy with a sister complex. After his initial shock, he changes completely and has a craving for sex.
To get even for Hiroto, Shibata deliberately rapes Yuki Nohara (Akiko Naruse), Kenta's girl and the brightest student in night school. Sincerely regretting what he has done, and discovering she is a fine girl, Shibata hopes to marry her. But when he asks Kenta for help, Kenta laughs in his face.
But getting to know one another better, a friendship is born between the day and night students. Finally Kenta and Shibata decide on a motorcycle race, winner get all, and to bury the hatchet forever.
