They refuse to sell as their land is an asset to be given from old generation to new generation. Money disappears but land stays. Ruffians' leader Palat (เมือง อพอลโล่) is upset against them. Other villagers also refuse to sell to them, so they kill them and accuse Thai regarding the murder. Thai must flee. Meanwhile Palat tries to force the mother to sign a paper. As she refuses, Palat kills her then rapes and kills Kaew. Coming back home, Thai decides to take revenge (แก้แค้น) after seeing the corpses. Thai is shot by Palat and left for dead. Other ruffians led by Klam (Manop Aussawathep) finds Thai and helps him. After recovery, Thai still wishes to take revenge so Klam sends a few men to help him. Thai takes revenge over Palat by killing him. Kit (Lak Apichat), head of the Northern ruffians, meets Thai and they become friend. The big boss (นายใหญ่) orders his ruffians to disrupt the Thai scouts. In 1970s the Thai scouts were protecting Thai villages against Thai communism. Thai moves to a new district and joins the Thai scouts (ลูกเสือ). Thai meets Kanda (Ampha Pusit). Kit plays a crazy beggar. Thai understands that Thai scouts are good people and help each other. He meets a woman reminding him about his mother's kindness. A lovestory starts between Thai and Kanda. Ready for action, Klam storms the village to get rid of the scout's leader but the scouts prevent him to be shot. Klam warns them he has a hidden man ready to kill the leader if he doesn't surrender by himself. Thai is identified as the traitor and blamed by the scouts (ขายชาฅิ, slapped by Kanda, having same name as Thailand...). Thai acknowledges to be a former ruffian and accepts any arbitration as he didn't plan to hurt the scouts. They reintegrate him. On next day, the leader quits the village and the ruffians plan to kill him. Thai, aware of it, tries to prevent the killing but gets shot. Thai soldiers arrive but too late. Kit and Klam shot each other.
