Mr Xe is a retired officer, a war veteran who lost a leg in combat. He has built and is now running a boarding school for young people from the country who come to the city to study. The boarding school is of course very strictly managed, with military-like rules.
A certain vision of the world conflicts with the young boarders' hopes and frustrations.
