More than twenty years ago, there were three Ban-doh (outdoor banquet) master chefs who dominated the catering business in Taiwan.

Synopsis

In 1928 when Taiwan was under Japanese occupation, the Chiayi Agriculture and Forestry Public School (a.k.a Kano, short for its Japanese name KAGI-NORIN School) was established to help develop local agricultural potential. The Kano baseball team started out simply as a sports club to improve the students’ physique. It never occurred to the team that the arrival of coach Kondo would completely transform them and help them leave a legacy that eventually became a legend.

To any young baseball player, Koshien (Japan’s high school baseball championship) is the dream palace. For a group of farmer boys like the Kano team, it’s a goal far beyond their reach, but Kondo endeavored to make it possible. He gave the players extremely rigorous training and made the best use of the team’s multiethnic composition— Japanese, Taiwanese and aboriginals— by appreciating their specific strengths.

After a year of intense training, the team was highly motivated and their determination to win got stronger even after numerous defeats. Much to everyone’s surprise, this previously unknown team finally won the local championship and proudly marched to Koshien. Playing at Koshien in front of 55,000 viewers was a dream-come-true not only for the Kano team but for Kondo as well.

Facing the strongest opposing team, the Kano boys were struggling in the final game. The situation got worse even tougher when their ace pitcher was wounded. Nonetheless the Kano boys showed true team spirit by taking up the challenge together.

Burning their passion for baseball, these farmer boys from southern Taiwan just refused to surrender…

Synopsis

Chun-Ying comes from the countryside. As Chu-Ying’s brilliant performance in sport wins her a place in a prestigious girls’ high school in Taipei, she leaves home to study in Taipei on her own. Chun-Ying’s story is familiar to her tug-of-war teammates since most of them come from single-parent families or disadvantaged backgrounds. Nonetheless, these girls are positive and optimistic. The lack of economic support from their families makes them even more determined to achieve their goal, and staunch camaraderie is established between them as a result. When Chun-Ying is admitted to the school, she knows nothing about tug-of-war. However, trained strictly by Coach Kuo and supported by the tender and encouraging Ms Wu, the girls take on the physical challenge, the frustration and the prejudice against sport from other students and some teachers. In the end, their sweat and tears pay off when they win the gold medal at the World Indoor Tug-of-war Championship. They have shown their strength and spirit to the whole world.
