His sister is deceived by Khun Amnat, the local mafia leader, as he simulates a fake release. Ruffians shot the father but bullets cannot hurt him (ยิงไม่เข้า) as he is wearing a sacred protective amulet so they hit him very badly. Learning those bad news, Phayak goes back home. Nuan (Naowarat Yooktanun), Phayak's friend is also always harassed by the ruffians (วันนี้ไม่อยากทำบาป). Phayak's father dies. Phayak gets the protective amulet from his father mouth. Meanwhile Cha is left as dead at the border. Following tortures to the head by thugs, he losts his memory and is now always drunk. Phayak decides to revenge his father. It is typical 1980s decade movie when the main actor needs to seek revenge by himself as he cannot rely on Thai police. Khun Amnat uses bad influence and power to control the area (มีอำนาจ). Police believes him. Phayao sends a letter to meet her brother Phayak. Her brother is upset with her as she has a new husband (ผัว) just after their father died. Khun Amnat uses Cha to shoot Phayak but he survives thanks to the sacred amulet (ของดี). Phayak needs to flee as police now tries to catch him. Khun Amnat uses Phayao to convince her brother to surrender (มอบตัว) and uses Cha again to kill him. Phayao complains she has to more shelter (ไม่มีที่พัก). It is a trick to steal his amulet. Nuan's father is killed and she is kidnapped. Phayak needs to face Cha in order to release Nuan. Hopefully Cha recovers his memory on time. Phayao knows now that Khun Amnat is a lier so she takes back the amulet and flees from his home but she is shot by him. As usual bad guys are finally punished. No extra judicial killing this time as Khun Amnat is hand overed to the police. Thai people believe that sacred powerful Buddha amulets from famous Buddhist monks can protect them during fighting.

Policemen and gangster groups go to the golden triangle, border between Thailand, Laos and Burma. Heavy fightings happen between both groups. The country traitors are killed or captured.

Inton is called father (พ่อ) as he takes care of the village. Chan is on the way to get back his wife using jeep to go through the mountains and being accompanied with a bunch of ruffians. The kidnapping is in fact Inton's revenge over Chan. Inton, Chan and Taptim were children who shared friendship during childhood.

Willing to kill Chan with a gun, Inton argues with Taptim and a lost bullet kills Taptim. Inton has to flee in the mountains.
