Pupils are punished using the old way, i.e. beaten severely with a stick. Teacher Boot tries to intervene and to oppose but to no avail. Kru Seua is respected by the villagers but Boot believes his teaching methods are outdated (โบราณ) and promises herself to win over him. Some children behave badly, steal other people belongings or play betting games (ทำดียาก - ทำชั่วง่าย). There is even a small mafia (นักเลงแทนนักเรียน). Kru Seua encourages pupils to share food as some of them do not have enough to eat. A mother has her son Pleun, being a former convict, released from prison after three years. His wife has gone and his son is sick. He needs money. Chinese businessman’s grandson comes to study at Kru Seua’s school but he has a bad behavior believing he can do anything as his grandfather funds the school. Kru Seua refuses his entry as all children shall be the same in school (short hair, same uniform). The Chinese businessman argues his donations give him any right but then where is the virtue (บุญ) of doing donation if there is a hidden compensation? The child brings itching powder in the classroom. Finally unable to accept more, Kru Seua cuts himself the boy’s hair very short (หน้าที่ของครู). The grandfather goes to police to fill a complain.

Despite excuses from the Thai Chinese businessman and his son, despite cries from the children and Boot, Kru Seua seems inflexible. Will he change his mind?

Thai movie ทองพูน โคกโพ ราษฎรเต็มขั้น / Taxi Driver (Citizen I) was released in year 1977. Thongpoon (Jatuphol Poopirom) is a Thai farmer coming from Udon Thani and going to Bangkok. Thongpoon sold his rice field in Udon and has spared money during five years to buy a taxi. This taxi represents the future for him and his young son. It is his dream to have his own taxi. Thongpoon is gullible. Rich Bangkok people cheat him by claiming having no change but Taen, a kind-hearted prostitute, gives him a note without asking change back. Her name is Taen (Wiyada Umarin) and she has issues with Somsak Chaisongkram (แมงดา) as she is pregnant. Thongpoon helps chasing Somsak away and becomes her regular taxi driver. He picks up her at her working place (อาบอบนวด). Thongpoon proposes to Taen to take care about his son but not easy to stop such job well paid. Thongpoon meets also Pinyo Parnnui, who claims to be a Thai soldier having fought in Vietnam and now being paralyzed. When his taxi get stolen by bad boys, his life alters. As they also steal his money, he is expelled from his home by his landlord (Marasri Isarangkul) as he cannot pay the rent. He ends up working on a construction site. His goal is to get back his taxi by all means. Pinyo brings him where the ruffians mingle but he gets beaten again. A business card lost allows to identify Boo Wibunnan as garage owner. He then forgets Taen and son. He refuses money from Taen to buy a new taxi as he doesn't want to be a pimp (แมงดา). He storms Boo’s garage and kill the ruffians trying to stop him. This madness leads him to prison. This movie highlights the impossible fight between poor and rich influential people, the analogy between the buffalo and the taxi for poor Isan people in Bangkok. Jatuphol Poopirom got a Thai award for his performance. It was his first movie. Sorapong Chatree was supposed to play the main role of Thongpoon but he was not available for the shooting so new comer Jatuphol Poopirom replaced him. As Jatuphol Poopirom died during a car accident in 1981, Sorapong Chatree played the main role in Citizen II. ChatriChalerm Yukol drove around Bangkok for weeks with cab drivers gathering anecdotes for "The Citizen".

Two young guys are dealing with heroin. The police failed to catch them. The two guys take refuge in a young lady's home, who is the girlfriend of one of them. They are modern Thai hooligans. Sorapong Chatree plays a hooligan in bell-bottom jeans in a film that mirrors the youthful chaos of the year 1976. The movie was shot in 1976 at the time of the violent crackdown on leftist students and protestors that occurred in the grounds of Thammasat university. The three young hooligans are living thanks to small thefs (stealing goods, wallets...). They are in rebellion with the society, i.e. they like damaging public installation, breaking windows, frightening middle class people, eating in restaurant without paying. One of them is keen on drugs also. One of the hooligan is rebelling again the system as when he was soldier, he was told to kill communist villagers but those people were good people worshipping the King of Thailand so he lost faith in Thai official institutions. The Chief of police looking for them was his former military superior. When robbing a house and neutralizing the occupants, they get a gun. While stealing a car, they face a strong owner who fights them. He is shot dead. They become more and more violent. They are caught in a whirlpool. They rob banks and shot policemen. Followed by police, they finally find refuge in the South of Thailand around Yala where they continue their bank robbing. They get too much media coverage. Journalists called them Grounded gods as they can do whatever they want, they always escape and nobody can catch them. They have nothing to loose and know they will die sooner or later. Surrounded by the Police, they hide in the jungle and are captured by a muslim community. The community is fighting against Thai institutions also but have real motives. It is precursory regarding current violent events happening in South of Thailand. The three hooligans finally died under Police bullets. It reminds of Stanley Kubrik's ultra violent "Clockwork Orange" movie and Bonny and Clide story. It is unofficially claimed that Oliver Stone was inspired from "Grounded God" for his controversial "Natural Born Killers" as many parallels are visible.

On next sequence, the ruffians speed through a village but this time they face Sombat Methanee. Fist fights happen. Romance between two couples Sopha / Luechai and Sombat / Petchara happen. Famous director Phan Kam (พันคำ) is there again. Luechai is part of the fight party. Movies with him are hard to find as his fame period was during 1957-1960, just before Mitr Chaibancha golden period, and then between 1964-1972. Scenario is unknown but certainly good guys (Sombat and Luechai) are fighting against ruffians terrorizing a village. Even veteran actor Chinese Boo Wibunnan can be seen in the short trailer.
