Meanwhile the thief, called Kimtheun, dies at the hospital. The head of police wants Sak to replace the dead thief at the hospital so that his thievish colleagues come to free him and so the police will be able to locate the mommy. Sak cannot refuse if he wishes to marry the head of police's daughter! A Chinese descendant and owner of antique shop is the one to order the robbery. A thievish colleague comes to the hospital not to help Sak but no kill him in order that he cannot talk anymore. Sak flees and takes refuge in the colleague's car trunk. He arrives in Chinese Viharnra Sien shrine in Chonburi province. Sak has to act like Kimtheun and discovers that he has one older wife and two children. Sak doesn't speak Chinese very well. Hopefully he can argue that his head injuries cause him to lose memory. There is some light mockery of old Chinese customs in Thailand (boss with numerous concubines and much younger that the main wife, strong accent when speaking Thai, mixing of Chinese and Thai words Atia for father - Ama for mother, eat pork crazily). Next plan is to steal the Democracy Monument's two golden offering bowls in Bangkok. Arguments and comic situations happen when Chim finds Sak with the Chinese wife. Sak claims he is Kimtheun. Chim starts to be suspicious. Kimtheun's youngest brother knows well a Chim's friend so Sak is broken cover when Chim and her friends visit the Chinese shrine. Sak needs to tell the truth to Chim. Sak argues he didn't do anything with Kimtheun's wife as she cut off her husband's manhood before and gave it to ducks as Kimtheun was too unfaithful (Surgeons in Thailand have become experts at re-attaching things). Sak and Chim follow up the antique shop owner up to Baan Beung in his secret cave where he hides the mummy. Being discovered, the boss hides himself inside the mummy armour. Sak and Chim need to replace the false mummy by the real mummy before Chinese authorities find the trick. It would cause the father to lose his job. During the mummy inspection, the mummy becomes alive as the antique owner doesn't want to go to China causing a big fear to everybody. Finally Sak and Chim happily marry.

It is a remake of the movie ชายผ้าเหลือง shot in 1974. The story is about the love of a mother towards her two sons, Khun Thong and Salika. Khun Thong, in self defense, shots Na khan, who previously killed his father 10 years ago and also injured his mother during a recent raid. The mother's love becomes painful because Khun Thong has become an outlaw. This movie has similar scenario to the version shot in 1974 but it focus more about the mother suffering. Na Khan's son used Khun Thong's name to raid other houses so Khun Thong has no way to quit. Khun Thong is a Thai Robin Wood and gives help to the poorest. Khun Thong is still a good son and keeps the money he robs for his mother and for his younger brother to enter monkhood. Rejected by both his mother and brother who refuse dirty money, Khun Thong decides to work as a peasant and carpenter to earn money from his hard work. But fate is against him. His girlfriend is trapped by Na khan son's gang, raped and killed. Khun Thong is accused again. His mother is disappointed by his behavior, saying it was not worth to educate him for becoming an outlaw and that feeding milk to him (ค่าน้ำนม) was such a waste. He becomes an outlaw again to catch Na Khan's son. He wants his teammates to surrender and become good people. Finally he catches Na Khan's son, who recognizes all the evil he has done over Khun Thong's name. It is too late as her mother doesn't want to talk to Khun Thong anymore. Willing to die, he misbehaves a last time to force his mother to shoot him. Before dying, Khun Thong and his mother confirm their filial love and Khun Thong can grab Salika's yellow robe as his brother has become a monk. It is certainly one of the best role of Sorapong Chatree.
