Saendee (Aranya Namwong), young lady, is an university student. Yot (Sombat Methanee), young man, is doing small jobs such as taxi driver in Bangkok to support his mother. Saendee doesn't know that Yot is poor as he is hiding his status by wearing nice suits and renting cars. Saendee gets her diploma. Saendee needs to decide if she continues her studies or start to work. She goes back to Isan to see her father in Nakhon Phanom (เรียนสำเร็จ). Saendee is coming from a local ethnic group called “Phu Tai” (คนภูไท). Her father cannot work since one year so Yot was the one paying for her studies. The father doesn't like Yot as he is not coming from the same ethnic group. There is Bun Bang Fai festival (ประเพณีบุญบั้งไฟ) in Nakhon Phanom. Yot and Saendee become lovers (เป็นของพี่แล้ว) despite the father’s disapproval. Saendee is now 6 months pregnant. Yot helps two men involved in a fight. So he is recruited to drive lorries and send goods by them. Unfortunately his new boss is a ruffian. Yot is forced to speed in order to escape police cars. Following a gun fight, the ruffians are shot. Yot is captured by the police and sent to prison. Saendee is not aware. She delivers beautiful twin, two girls, but has to cope alone. She is chased from her home as she cannot pay the rent anymore. Poor Sao Phu Tai (สาวภูไท)... She has to abandon (ฝาก) her children in front of Pa’s house. She goes to Bangkok to look for her old university friend, Kamnotchan. Kamnotchan is now a successful business woman as the company boss (ผู้จัดการ) Sarawut likes her a lot. But once Saendee comes to work, the boss changes his focus to her instead of Kamnotchan. Kamnotchan is upset by this situation. A crisis happens and she accuses Saendee of trying to steal the love from the company boss. This is of course wrong as Saendee misses Yot and her children. Saendee leaves Kamnotchan's house. Krot (Metta Roongrat) is a strong female director of a circus. Performers are not good so she needs to find new ones (เด็กฝึกใหม่). The circus teacher thinks to hire the twin girls he recently saw. Pa has no more money to feed all the children she is taking care of. The teacher gives her 10 000 baht to buy and train the two twin girls. The circus director hits them to accelerate their training. So fed up, one of the twin flees. Yot is released from prison. He is looking for his family but to no avail. The little girl is rescued by a rich family. Finally Sarawut finds back Saendee and she accepts to fiance with him. Yot finds a job in the same circus. The circus goes to Bangkok hoping for a better business. The two sisters recognize each other during a performance. The circus director asks for 5 000 baht to give back the child. Sarawut, who loves Saendee, helps her to get back her children. Believing in a children kidnapping Yot follows Sarawut's car. The family is finally reunited happily. It is a good feeling movie even if many unlikelihoods are happening. It highlights the strong and sacrosanct Thai mother. The movie features Isan music in the background. This VCD is a copy of an IBC6 TV program recording but the quality is acceptable.
