Description: Mon and Jung are amateur volleyball players who are constantly rejected from teams because of their homosexuality. Their luck changes when they are drafted by the Lampang Volleyball Team, headed by the indiscriminate Coach Bee-a lesbian. After Mon and Jung join the team, nearly all the players resign to protest. Unfazed and determined to put a winning team together, Coach Bee asks the duo to recruit some of their friends: a gay army sergeant, a transsexual cabaret star, a set of outrageous triplets and a young man with a very obvious secret. Re-christened "The Iron Ladies", they begin winning local tournaments and become a media sensation. Not without detractors and constantly harassed by rival teams, the Ladies realize that the only way to shut them up is to beat them at their own game, leading them all the way to the national championships.
