Thai movie ลอยกระทง was released in year 1969. It is a 16mm film so in mute state and no complete summary of the movie is left. The movie is incomplete as only 2h08mn is left. Mitr Chaibancha, Adul Dulyarat, Boo Wibunnan are watching ladies Petchara Chaowarat, Wassana Chalakorn, Metta Roongrat launching krathongs in the river during Loy Krathong festival. A speed boat makes Petchara fall in the water. Mitr rescues her. The speed boat is driven by Petchara's brother. As he dislikes his sister meeting the three young men, fighting happens. The father Tat Ekathat interposes himself but he doesn't like Mitr either. The father forbids them to meet. The movie is named Loy Krathong but the movie is about Loy Krathong festival only at the beginning of the movie when both Mitr and Petchara initially met. The movie is then more an action movie. Mitr and Petchara try to help a young kid tentatively treated by a tribe shaman (Lor Tok). Other villagers interpose as they are not used to western medicine. At nighttime one of the villagers (Pipop Pupinyo) brings the kid for injection. Finally Mitr sympathizes with the shaman and ends up taking care of several children! Metta is aggressed by three ruffians and gets help from Mitr and also a group of children (including famous child actress Tukata Jindanuch). Those children are mischievous. Disappointed not to get Mitr's love, Metta ends up to be drunk. Metta does use a trick on Petchara in order for Mitr to be disappointed by her. Metta prevents her to see Mitr. Mitr and Lor Tok have arguments with policemen and end up in jail. Prachuap Ruekyamdee releases them by using violence and threatening policemen. Mitr injures by the accident a policeman. Arguments are happening between tribe kids and Thai local kids. Petchara is their teacher. Adul Dulyarat, a policeman officer, tries to seduce Petchara. The father Tat Ekathat threatens his daughter of closing the school. Tat Ekathat is aggressed by thieves on a mountain road. Luckily Mitr, Prachuap, Lor Tok are around and chase away the thieves. The three friends realise that Boo Wibunnan is trafficking drug. Behind this traffic, there is involvement of Tat Ekathat and ruffians leader. Fist fighting erupts involving Adinan also. Tat Ekathat stops everybody. It is discovered that the candles on the krathong contain explosives. It looks like Boo Wibunnan and Lor Tok die in an explosion. Mitr and Prachuap are arrested by Adul and Sukon Koewliam, a policeman. They get transfered under military authority, who releases them. Metta is captured with ruffians. Two policemen gets captured also. Meanwhile Mitr follows up Adinan but gets injured by Ekathat's fellow worker. Mitr hides in the school and is treated by Petchara.
