The oldest resident living in Ma-ee-do, an island that does not exist on the map, has a last wish on his 99th birthday. He wishes that one of the young lads in his village will go to university and make the island known to the world. Hearing of this wish, the other residents are faced with a big problem. There are three candidates, who are the right age to enter university, but none of them have any special talents either in studies or sports and it may be a difficult task to send them off to university. After a long discussion, the village people come to a decision that they will send these young lads to university as special athletes through boxing. After several inquiries, the villagers employ Big Coach, a retired boxer who had seven matches in his whole boxing career with two wins and five losses and is now an owner of a game room downtown. The young boys begin their boxing lessons with Big Coach. All of these boys have their own reasons to train as boxers and enter college. Dae-Sung wants to go to university because of a female university student he likes. Man-Gu wants to become a successful singer, which he believes he can set off this career by first participating in the National University Song Festival. Hae-Sam just wants to get away from the fishing boats and life as a fisherman and live in the city. Though clumsy with the boxing gloves on, they each develop a deathblow and manage to win up to the finals in the amateur boxing competition.
