He has to kill Sarayut (Sor Asanajinda), a popular politician, against a reward of 1M baht and one airplane ticket to go anywhere. Sarayut's wife was fed up with the risks linked to politics so she left him 10 years ago to go to Italy with their young son. Plaew has to be a hitman (มือปืน). Sahat lies to Plaew in order to have Sarayut killed. As Plaew's father was a politician, he would be the right scapegoat. A lady called Romanat (Duangcheewan Komolsen) helps Plaew to prepare the shooting and gets in love with him. Plaew has one week to do the job. The killing shall happen during a speech. He meets Manop Aussawathep to learn more his father's death. Plaew still wanders who has killed his father, who was also a politician. People, who wish to hurt Thailand, killed his father. They now chase him also. Politics in Thailand is full of bad influence (อิทธิพล), corruption and murders through hitmen. Romanat warns him that people try to kill him. Romanat wishes to flee with Plaew and mentions that she knows Sahat will shot Plaew once the job is done. During the political gathering, Plaew doesn't shoot Sarayut but his opponent. This causes Sahat's ire and Plaew needs to flee to Malaysia. Plaew meets Lucky Jack (Jatuphol Poopirom) in Malaysia but they have to flee to Rome, Italy due to problems with police. Lucky Jack is in fact Sarayut's son! In Rome, Plaew seduces Maria that Lucky Jack also loves. As Sahat threatens to kill Romanat, Plaew has seven days to come back to Thailand. Maria loves Plaew but gets killed during a gunfight. Lucky Jack doesn't forgive Plaew. Plaew and Lucky Jack go back to Bangkok to catch Sahat. Sahat sends Romanat as a gift to lucky Jack acting as a local ruffian. Finally both Plaew and Lucky Jack love again the same woman, i.e. Romanat. Plaew learns that Sarayut is behind his father's death. Misunderstandings happen between Jack and Plaew as ruffians push Jack against Plaew. Meanwhile Sarayut, as smart and evil politician, plays also the two men against each other. Sarayut, as nasty politician, is wishing to send Plaew to trial in order not to be accused of any collusion of the previous shooting done by Plaew. He pushes his own son to shoot Plaew. Finally Plaew shots Sarayut but gets shot by Lucky Jack. This is a typical action movie from the 1970s highlighting the bad sides of the Thai politics.
