As Phan doesn't want to initiate the divorce, he planned to accuse her of adultery. Who wants to marry a woman who divorces her husband? it is wrongly seen as shameful by Thai society.

She finally wins the trial. This movie is widely admired by younger educated and intellectual Thai people. It nevertheless caused a major scandal by its sexual frankness and by the implication that a senior military figure could be guilty of socially inadmissible practices. In 1980s, Sinjai Hongthai played the modern woman in many movies (ฉันรักผัวเขา, ครั้งเดียวก็เกินพอ) directed by Manop Udomdej. She always has to fight for her rights.

Unfortunately one of his former inmates abducts his son and threatens Thongpoon to hurt his son if Thongpoon doesn't kill his boss, who has an issue with local mafia.
