She finally gets a chance to go to university (ได้ทุน) in Nakhon Thammarat to study medicine. Fear (ความกลัว) is present in daily life through anti-intrusion barriers in front of Buddhist temples, Thai armed soldiers controlling circulation. The university includes Buddhist and Muslim students so they have to work together and to go beyond cultural issues. Friendship can be built through love (มิตรภาพยนตร์สร้างได้และ หล่อหลอมด้วยความรัก). Both Muslim (ไทยมุสลิม) and Buddhist (ไทยพุทธ) students love the same land. One day, one of her Muslim friend's father, is killed so misunderstanding does happen again between Muslim and Buddhist students. Finally friendship is stronger than misunderstanding as Fatima is back. Nobody understand Muslims as well as another Muslim, so Sa wishes to go back to her village to take care of people by being a doctor.
