Multiple cases of campus bullying shattered the beautiful youth campus life that the five protagonists were supposed to have. Qi Ming is handsome and admired by everyone as an excellent student, while Yi Yao is referred to as a "loser" by everyone. The two grew up together and had a good relationship. However, everything changed dramatically after the transfer student Tang Xiaomi appeared. Rumors became a destructive weapon, and Yi Yao faced constant harassment and challenges. Yi Yao's life plunged into darkness, subjected to various forms of brutal bullying. Gu Senxi taught Yi Yao to fight back against campus violence, and his presence gave Yi Yao a glimmer of hope. But due to a twist of fate, Gu Senxi's accident pushed her back into darkness once again. When the victim becomes the perpetrator, when the bystander becomes an enabler, in this farce called "jokes," there are no onlookers, only the perpetrators.
