There was a wedding promise between the parents. But Duangtawan wants to check his future wife's mindset first so he disguises himself as the family's car driver (คนขับรถ). His own driver, Phat Thai, becomes the Mom Chao (หม่อมเจ้า) and visits the HiSo family. Kaew (นางตัวดี) simulates herself as the Madam (คุณนาย) as her boss is out for holidays. Finally Duangtawan and Kaew start to be very close as Duangtawan appreciates her simplicity and frankness despite simulating being a Madam. The movie shows Thai society equality through food, i.e. rich / poor people can also sit on the floor, eat papaya salad (ส้มตำ) and sticky rice (ข้าวเหนียว). The Madam is asking for an engagement diner. As Duangtawan's father confirms, she comes back earlier than expected. Quiproquo happens again as Madam's daughter tries to seduce the car driver as she believes he is the real Duangtawan. She brings him to a short time motel (ข่มขืนเขา). Finally Duangtawan tells to Kaew the truth about his real identity but she flees ashamed of her own condition. Through a final quiproquo, the truth is revealed to all. It is finally discovered that Kaew is also the granddaughter of rich family. It a nice small movie but it lacks the craziness and dances that can be found in Bollywood movies.

A Thai husband called Sankap comes to rest with his wife Oon, a domestic helper and his teenage daughter, Kaew in a remote house. Ting is the mute (ใบ้) guardian of the old house. He is similar to a Quasimodo. Strange and scary noises can be heard at nighttime especially in the attic. Bones (ที่เก็บกระดูก) are found there. Kaew has her periods for the first time (เป็นสาวแล้ว). Through hidden passages in the house walls, the guardian spies the family. Through incantations, the guardian is calling an old spirit in front of a skeleton. The spirit needs a virgin (หญิงพรหมจารี) and pure blood. The spirit extends his life since more than 100 years thanks to virgin blood (บริสุทธิ์). Kaew is finally possessed (ถูกผีเข้า), speaks with a male voice and has extreme strength (แรงมาก). She tries to strangle the domestic helper. While the husband is out to get a doctor, Kaew continues her rampage towards her mother and the domestic helper. The mother and domestic helper are not strong enough face to a hell spirit (ผีนรก). The domestic helper is killed. The Thai husband arrives too late with a doctor. The doctor is even thrown out of the window and dies. Vichan (Porjed Kaenpetch), Sankap’s friend, visit them and is surprised to find the house very quiet and the two corpses. He has difficulties to believe in ghosts until the spirit wakes up. Vichan suspects the guardian so follows him up inside his hut. Oon suggests to call a shaman (หมอผี). The guardian is neither mute neither handicapped. Some zombie try to catch Vinchan. Meanwhile the spirit lies to Oon and convinces her to open the locked door. Fight happens between the spirit and Sankap. Despite cutting its arms and head, Sankap is overcome by the spirit. Sankap and Oon are killed. A purification fire started by Vichan burns the skeleton and wax effigies. Spirits are defeated. Vichan promises to take care of Kaew. Compared to other contemporary 1980s Thai horror movies, this movie doesn't have much comic relief despite Lor Tok and Note Chernyim acting, so it is more similar to western standards despite having simple Fx. It could be the Thai version of "The Exorcist"!

First movie episode สิงห์รถบรรทุก was shot in 1977. Siarat (Sorapong Chatree) is the owner of a truck company and is recently married. Phayap is the head of local mafia. His team is responsible of killing the owner of a truck company but they manage to accuse Siarat. Malin (Suriwan Suriyong), daughter of the assassinated truck owner, wishes to take revenge over Siarat but her mother (Pissamai Wilaisak) tries to prevent her as there is no proof yet. Malin believes wrongly Phayap's sayings. Two hitmen shot and kill Sairat's wife, Saisanee. Siarat wishes to take revenge over this murder. Meanwhile Siarat's former friends from the first movie episode, Chan, Kaewkarawet and Rawan, come back. Phayap tries to buy land from poor farmers but Chan (Manop Aussawathep) helps to chase the ruffians. Siarat doesn't know yet who killed his wife, Phayap group or Malin group. Phayap calls for other ruffians' help from Sisaket. Malin has great fighting skills. Suriwan Suriyong was often used as leading actress for action movies. She shows to Siarat that women can do same as men. Malin and Siarat are now friends as Phayap is identified as the treacherous man. Phayap sells weapons illegally to drug dealers. Phayap kills Siarat's friend Master (อาจารย์) himself. Siarat and Malin bring dozen of trucks to attack Phayap's team but the fields are mined. Gunfire happen between both groups until Phayap is neutralized through bloody sequences. It is a typical action movie from 1980s based on revenge script, kung fu fights, gunfire fights and issues resolved without the direct intervention from the police (it is only known at the movie end that Sairat's friends were under cover policemen), katoei (กะเทย) used as supporting comic roles. The movie image is very damaged for a 1980s movie. This hommage to trucks world was certainly very successful in countryside where movies were projected from the backs of trucks on to sheets hung between trees at fairgrounds.

In Nan province, animist forest people (คนป่า) are discovered. They are called "Phi Tong Leuang" (ผีตองเหลือง) or Mlabri ethnic group. They do not possess anything and share everything within the group. They are exploited by Bangkokian people to cut trees in forest. They stop to cut trees because deities (ผีฟ้า) are angry.

They are far from civilization and are friend of the Mlabri ethnic group. Cheng is a young man living in Ta Wa Dung village. The students mistakes Cheng as a Mlabri ethnic group member and catches him. Cheng is same as French Asterix and his magic potion. Cheng gets high strength when getting exposed to sun.

Tuk Tuk driver Kamsai goes home late. He is living with his mum, his wife Bua Rai, his wife's younger sister (เด็กวัยรุ่น) and their young daughter. Everybody is asking money to Kamsai and Bua Rai, i.e. the younger sister (flirting with Bob instead of studying) and the mother (playing cards - เล่นไพ่ - and losing a lot). Bua Rai is hairdresser. One of her customers, Phi Songsree, told her to contact her in case she needs money... The younger sister and Bob indulge in sex and drug. Bob is always complaining about his mother in law, who holds all his money following his father's death. Kamsai's mother is so indebted that she has to use house property title (ใบซื้อขายบ้าน) of her son and loses it. Meanwhile Kamsai is aggressed by three ruffians, who steal his money. He ends up at hospital. He is now handicapped and there is a 10 000 baht hospital fee to pay. Bua Rai cannot use Chanot Baan as the mother lost it. She has no choice but to go to see Phi Songsree to get 10 000 baht. Bua Rai has to prostitute herself to pay back the debt and earns money to sustain the family. The mother and younger sister are fully aware and take profit of it. Kamsai finally exits from hospital. Kamsai would rather stay half paralyzed rather that Bua Rai sells her body (ขายตัว). Coming late, Bua Rai still gets sarcasm from the mother as she just lost playing cards. Kamsai cannot stand to be unable to perform his husband duty. Bua Rai lies to Kamsai about her real job. He gets concerns when she has to go to Pattaya. Kamsai tries hard to recover. He is proud of his wife (เมียดีๆ). Bua Rai finds her sister injecting drugs to herself. Kamsai can now walk and finds that Bua Rai is not working as hairdresser anymore. Meanwhile Bua Rai's younger sister also resolves to prostitution to be able to buy drug (ยา) for her and Bob. Bua Rai discovers her sister also prostitutes herself (บัดซบ). The younger sister rejects her elder sister. Kamsai also understands that his wife is a prostitute (อิกะหรี่) and beats her. Everybody forgets she is doing this for the family. The family is about to explode (เราด้องการเงิน, ใจง่าย). The younger sister and Bob enter prostitution and steal bags. Kamsai indulges in alcohol. Rejected by Kamsai, forbidden to see her daughter, Bua Rai leaves the house and explains in a note that she has no choice as his mother sold the house. She ends up at hospital, where her younger sister just died following a shooting. She decides to get suicide. Hopefully Kamsai and the daughter arrive on time to save her and promise to build a new life (ชีวิตใหม่).
