The movie song is "จะไปดูหนังไทย บ๊ะ ต้องเห่าดง ดาวดัง สรพงษ์ ผิวคล้ำ นำแสดง สุรีย์วัล สุริยง มาประชันขันแข่ง อรัญญา ก็มา ร่วมกันในเห่าดง". Pleng (เพลิง)(Nard Poowanai) and Kam (Piathip Kumwong) have arguments. Kam complains Pleng is not sincere. Pleng must choose between being a ruffian (นักเลง, การพนัน) versus being an honest military officer (ยุติธรรม). They break up. The military head, Prachom (Kanchit Kwanpracha), promises to help Pleng but this latter refused due to his strong character (กระดูกแข็ง). Pleng has arguments with a debtor, who insults his mother. He stabs him, flees and quits the army. Finally, Pleng becomes a ruffian (เสียคน). Both Prachom and his wife (Marasri Bangchang) are upset by Pleng’s decision. Pleng meets dancer Anchalee (Anchalee Chaisiri) in a restaurant. Pleng has a fight with the restaurant owner Prayak (Uten Boonyong) and gets injured. Anchalee takes care of him. Pleng is accepted in the ruffians’ team by leader Prayak. Prayak and Chinta (จินดา)(Aranya Namwong) have a child called Bayan. Bayan is in fact a child being kidnapped. Prayak and Chinta need to flee the police and go overseas. Pleng promises to take care of Bayan. Many years have passed. Bayan has now grown up and is renamed Prao (พราว)(Suriwan Suriyong). She has learnt fighting skills (การต่อสู้). While doing shopping, a young policeman called Wut (วุฒิ)(Sorapong Chatree) contacts Prao as Prissana but it is a mistake. But in fact, Prao and Prissana are twins (ลูกแฝด)! They were separated 15 years ago following a robbery by Prayak in Prachom’s home. Prissana is Wut’s sister. She is engaged to a policeman (Kowit Wattanakul). Hao Dong is a mysterious judiciary punishing ruffians and warning police in advance (ผู้หวังดี). Behind it is Pleng, who always felt guilty to have quit the army. During a last event, Pleng gets shot and killed while helping Wut. Young lady Prao replaces her father Pleng as judiciary. She avenges Pleng by putting a bomb in ruffian leader's car. Wut pretends to be Niwat, insurance representative, in order to investigate the daughter, Saisree (ไซซี)(Mayura Thanabutr), regarding her father’s death. In a discotheque, Saisree recognises Prao as they studied together in Japan. Prao studies martial arts including Ninja skills. Wut suspects Prao to be Hao Dong but proofs are not enough. Wut likes Prao (ตํารวจมีหัวใจเหมือนกัน!). Chita and Phayak come back from overseas to support Prao. Prao still wants to catch the real leader of the mysterious society (วงการ). Saisree is now the head of a Chinese style secret society. Both Prao and Saisree want to avenge their father’s death. Ruffians are aware that Hao Dong is behind Saisree’s father's death, so they want to avenge. Saisree asks Wut to lie to Prao and to attract her in a trap. He refuses. As Saisree loves Wut, she protects him while the ruffians wish to shoot him. Saisree is shot, but Wut succeeds to escape. Prissana is kidnapped by ruffians in order to attract Prao. Wut, the police and Prao storm the ruffians’ headquarters. Chita and Phayak, wearing Hao Dong uniforms, are also killed in the fighting, so Prao cannot be accused. Prao is reunited with her parents. A double wedding Prissana / Chao and Prao / Wut can happen.
