In January 1982 a Thai Ranger squad, together with units from the Border Patrol Police and the Royal Thai Army, was used to force Khun Sa to move his headquarters from Thailand across the border into Burma. Sorapong Chatree recalls war and is stressed. He is sent to spy Khun Sa. Twenty men, including Tuanton Kammeesri / Pumi Patanayut / พยัคฆ์ รามวาทิน, arrive in the camp led by Khun Sa. Their trainer is Joomjim Khemlek. Khun Sha (Somjin Thammatat), drug warlord, sells drugs to buy weapons. Manop (Manop Aussawathep) has conflicts with Khun Sha. Manop is attacked on his way back by Burmese soldiers but gets help from Nirut (Nirut Sirijanya). Manop is back to his mountain village with Nirut. His younger sister Rungfa (Nanthida Kaewbuasai) welcomes him. A journalist Pinyo Parnnui is arrested by Somsak Chaisongkram. He wishes to interview khun Sa. Sorapong, disguised as a fleeing prisoner, is attacked by a plane and then is arrested by Khun Sa's men. Siriporn (ศิริพร เอี่ยมสุนทร), daughter of Khun Sa, saves his life but he remains tied. Manop learns that the Burmese soldiers who attacked him are in fact soldiers linked to Khun Sa as real Burmese soldiers would not dare entering Thai soil. Upset, Manop and Nirut storm Khun Sa's HQ but get captured. Sorapong wins Siriporn‘s trust. Khun Sa believes there is a traitor in the camp. Sorapong sympathizes with other men, who are part of the government. Siriporn complains her father produces too much drugs. Drug is given to prisoners to keep them under control. Sorapong succeeds to have his friends escaping but he is then captured. About to be hanged, Sorapong is released by his teammates. Thai forces’ attacks against the camp happen. Many people die but Khun Sa succeeds to flee in Burma. This movie is often considered as Thai remake of US movie "Apocalypse Now" by Francis Ford Coppola.
