Khun Don, local Robin Hood thief, chases the thugs (นักเลง) away. The ruffians' leader is subdistrict headman (กำนัน) Phichit. Two Bangkokian friends come to visit Bulai, i.e. Phanit (Pawana Chanajit) and Thantip (Duangcheewan Komolsen). Phanit mistakes Khun Don with another man called Paradorn that she loved before. Phichit, lewd (ลามก) headman, wants Bulai as his wife. Phichit accuses the two Bangkokian ladies to be linked to Khun Don.
