One night, Rom simulates being drunk in a nightclub but Wassana, his girlfriend, is taking care of him. Nobody never thought that Rom, often seen drunk, can be Insee Daeng. They meet influent wealthy man (พ่อเลี้ยง) called Sombun. Following an altercation between Rom and some ruffians, Sombun is found stabbed with a knife featuring a skull pommel. A mysterious organisation signs its crimes with this specific knife. Police inspector Montree and his subordinate Chat are investigating. They are looking for the ruffians and try to catch Saeng, their supposed leader, but he succeeds to flee. At nighttime the mysterious organization also tries to stab the police inspector (สารวัตร) Montree. Chat doesn’t like Insee Daeng but the police inspector Montree admits he is useful for the society (ผิดแต่มีประโยชน์สำหรับสังคม) but his duty is still to catch him. Insee Daeng finds one of the ruffian and follows him to a big house. A mysterious woman is found stabbed there. Chat has a fight there with Insee Daeng but is defeated. Chat believes the murderer is Insee Daeng but mysteriously the body has disappeared. The house is owned by a wealthy man called Thiem. Rom disguises himself as a ruffian named Sing in order to infiltrate the organisation. He found that Thiem is one of the head (นาย) of the ruffians. Sing claims he is coming from the South of Thailand and that he is fleeing the police. Sing accepts to work for Thiem (คนของฉัน). Sing speaks a lot and is not appreciated by other ruffians. A social party is organized. Rom, Wassana and the policemen meet Chamanchai Suk, a powerful businessman. Another businessman is killed during the party. Montree and Chat are captured while trying to catch the killers. Hopefully a mysterious masked heroine frees them on time and gives them the address of a storage place containing heroine. Thiem asks Sing to get back an important letter. He goes there as Insee Daeng and succeeds thanks again to the help of the mysterious masked heroine. Thiem is pleased with Sing and would like him to join (สมาชิก) the mysterious organisation (ชาติชั่ว) called “Dead demon” (ภูตมรณะ). Sing meets Kanda (Preeya Roongrueng), a dangerous beautiful sexy lady working for Thiem. Oh Oh is the big boss but nobody ever saw his face. While visiting ‘Blue Birds’ bar, the two policemen are captured again. Chat shall be drown slowly and Montree’s death shall be disguised as an accidental fall from a building. Hopefully Insee Daeng can help them on time as Sing is now member of the organisation. Finally internal conflicts cause the failure of the organisation. Kanda surrenders to the Police and gives them the address of the hidden lair. The movie ends with various gun fights involving Montree, Chat, Insee Daeng and the ruffians. Oh Oh, who is in fact Chamanchai Suk, is also shot. The mysterious masked heroine is Wassana. The police failed once again to catch Insee Daeng. The movie (Lepso Studio VCD version) has a damaged picture with lack of colors but the Phanmitr DVD version has been remastered so offering a very good quality. It reminds of 1960s decade movies involving mysterious organizations such as James Bond movies with Sean Connery or Fantômas with Jean Marais. There is a very good performance from Mitr Chaibancha as he is playing three roles (Rom, Insee Daeng and Sing). It is a long movie, i.e. around 2h20.

As he is a spirit, he is able to see that his father has a mistress (เมียน้อย) called Vilai and a son. He can see the family hidden secrets (ลับ). His mother acts as a pawner and seize belongings when people cannot reimburse. He meets an old aunt. She died 20 years ago when giving birth to a daughter. She asked him to help her daughter called Noi who is now in the ghost realms. He also visits the hell (นรก) directed by Yama (พระยม). Adultery is severely punished. Guardians stick them with forks. After checking the book of dead, Narin still has 30 years to live and duties (ภาระ) to do. He is a lawyer. He negotiates advice from Yama regarding Noi as compensation. He is sent back to human world (โลกมนุษย์) during his funeral! A middle age lady called Phayo has debts with Narin's mother. Phayo has a daughter, called Pratheuan, going to university. Narin's mother wants to exchange the debts against a wedding promise with her son. To help Phayo, Narin agrees to do a false fiancee ceremony so that Phayo can get back her debt papers but Pratheuan wishes to really marry with Narin. Narin then contacts uncle Suk, who is a sorcerer (หมอผี). They go into a remote cave to find Noi (Petchara Chaowarat). She is a ghost (ผีดิบ). Narin has to perform specific ceremonies during 7 days and Noi can become human (เป็นคน). He has to wear white clothes, should not touch any woman including his own mother during this period, eat vegetarian (กินเจ) and practice meditation. Pratheuan understands she has a risk to lose Narin so tries to entice him. Narin's mother is also aware that he is dating a ghost so decides to accelerate the wedding date. It shall happen within three days. His father has a brain hemorrhage and before dying asks Narin to help regarding his second family. As the father gives everything to his mistress in the testament (พินัยกรรม), Noi frightens the mistress Vilai so that she agrees to burn it in order to have a more equitable testament. Noi is now a human but Narin cannot marry her as he still fianced with Pratheuang. Uncle Suk gives to Narin a special temporary medicine to eat in order to appear having leprosy.
