However, to get one, all engineering freshmen must first undergo the SOTUS (acronym for Seniority, Order, Tradition, Unity, and Spirit) system. Arthit (Perawat Sangpotirat), one of the third year seniors, often abuses his power over the freshmen by making them do things against the rules. Freshmen students are practically powerless to complain or resist any orders given by their seniors. Arthit was seemingly unstoppable, until Kongpob (Prachaya Ruangroj) stood up against the abuses by the former. Continual encounters between the two developed from animosity to something much more affectionate.
