Nuan and the doctor met each other in the hospital. Nuan fell in love with him and accepted to become his girlfriend. The doctor was going to be sent to Lampang. Nuan was waiting eagerly for the doctor to be back. Nuan presented her father (Somkuan Krajangsat) to doctor Utit as she hoped Utit would ask her hand for wedding. The love was not shared. Utit started to be fed up with Nuan (รำคาญ). Nuan was upset. Fed up by the doctor's lack of responsibility (ไม่ยอมรับผิดชอบ), she threatened to shoot him if he didn't marry. Under pressure, doctor Utit accepted. But the doctor’s mother (Sarinthip Siriwan) refused to accept Nuan. Nuan and her father complained to the hospital’s director. It caused Utit to be very upset and he hit Nuan. Nuan saw doctor Utit with another girl (Wiyada Umarin). Two brothers were involved in the murder. As Nuan learnt Utit had also married Umarin 6 days after her, she threatened the doctor to go to justice. Utit was fed up with Nuan as she could really mess up his future and position in the society. Wiyada saw her a competitor. So everything was in place to get rid of Nuan and to kill her with the help of the local undertaker (สัปเหร่อ) Somsak and the two brothers as intermediates. Wiyada and doctor Utit finally recognize their culpability. It is based on a real story, which happened in year 1959.
