Main actress: Pornpan Ketmamatsu

The leader (เจ้านาย)(ภูมิ พัฒนายุทธ) is looking for Buddha statues (พระสักองค์). Sompong informs the temple abbot that the ruffians even dig near old sacred pagodas but nothing the abbot can do (สัตว์นรก). Khun Det, aware, chases away the workers. Khun Det is then captured, crucified and suspended to a headless Buddha giant statue. Khun Det is rescued by Sompong and his daughter. Khun Det repairs an old gun (ปืนเก่า). As the ruffians are evacuating Buddha statues by boat, Khun Det sinks the boat thanks to his gun. It reminds the scene of Naresuan 2 with the King shooting very far away with a gun to defeat the Burmese king. The leader, seeing that Khun Det is bringing them serious troubles again decide to flee by car with some Buddha statues. Khun Det prevents him to flee by destroying his car and killing him. The father (สมจินต์ ธรรมทัต), in ire as his son is dead, storms the village with ruffians but is unable to find Khun Det. They burn belongings of villagers and threaten the abbot. The father destroys pagodas and tries to bury a big Buddha statue. Khun Det prevents them so the father finally calls Manop Aussawathep, a professional killer. He shots Sompong. This movie also reminds of western such as “The Magnificent Seven” with people protect villagers against ruffians as there is no police. Manop then buries men alive to force Khun Det to show himself. The villagers fight back. The father and his ruffians are killed. Khun Det defeats Manop through an epic final fight.
