Yiem (Dam Datsakorn), Ying's father (พ่อ), doesn't accept this and threatens to kill Bai if he doesn't apologize. Yiem hits Bai's father. Wishing to clarify the situation with Yiem, Bai and Chom end up fighting with Ying and his ruffians again. Ying shots Chom and Bai has no choice but shooting Ying also. Chom is only injured but Ying dies. Chom and Bai have to flee but subdistrict headman (กำนัน) Yiem promises to revenge his dead son. While fleeing, Bai helps Malee (Nareerat Monsiri) threatened (รังแก) by ruffian Riem (Chat Mongkolchai). Sia Thong is another godfather lending money then taking land and cows when villagers cannot repay. Bai has to play the robin woods to get back the illegal contracts from Sia Thong. Malee is Seua Fai's (Sombat Methanee) young sister. Yiem's ruffians kill Chom. Bai and his friend Sakorn (Kowit Wattanakul) take refuge in Seua Fai's territory. Romance starts between Bai and Malee. Seua protects villagers and punish those acting badly. Yiem's ruffians team perform robbery (ปล้น) by using Bai's name. They hide their face. The action is taking place during World War II with Japanese soldiers occupying Thailand. Bai and Seu Fai team help each other to neutralize a petrol stock maintained by Japanese soldiers. While visiting his mother, Bai is surprised by Yiem's ruffians. He succeeds to escape but a traitor is leading Yiem to Bai's hidden refuge. Yiem is bringing the police with him. Shootings happen. As Sakorn is seriously injured, he stays behind to stop Yiem's ruffians. Meanwhile Yiem sends teammates to kidnap Bai's parents so Bai's team has to split into two parts. Following his mother's request, Bai finally surrenders to the police. No thief can escape police. The real historical Bai is coming from Suphanburi province. He was a thief (โจร) very active after World War 2. He stayed in prison from 1953 to 1963. The real man Seua Bai (เสือใบ) has a small speech at the end of this movie. He is highlighting that his illegal life should not be followed. Other versions of Seua Bai were in 1971 (สุภาพบุรุษเสือใบ), 1998 (เสือ โจรพันธุ์เสือ). In 1971 version, the part related to the fight against Japanese invaders is much longer.
