Minami Goto/24:59/Japan/Drama/2018

Yuta is a high school student living in Shizuoka, Japan. His strong sense of justice makes his school life torture. Only certain students are given special treatment, teachers enforce useless rules, and students just go along with it... To change the situation, he rebels against the system by causing mischief around the school. One day, Yuta, together with four disgruntled friends, devise a plan to take over the grade assembly.
