Xiao, the acting principal of Pu An Primary School for the last three years, has concealed the reality of the school’s conditions before an upcoming inspection by the board of education. When the head of the board deems Xiao’s facility too luxurious, Xiao tries to save his pending promotion by sacrificing his own salary and teachers’ bonuses as a charity donation. His hopes of being promoted come undone when his sole reward is a banner sent in the mail.
