Teacher Tom and his hairdresser wife Reusi are living in a slum. They have a daughter. Tom is very dedicated to his job and study books every evening. His wife is bored and wishes to have a more exciting life. Following a friend invitation to a high society party, she goes alone as Tom believes it is not his world. There she meets a rich man and becomes her lover. She starts to go back home very late and doesn't go to her daughter's school activities. Following arguments between Tom and Reusi, they finally agree to divorce and Reusi announce to him that he is not the real father of their daughter! The slum is also full of robers and drug sellers. By unfortunate incident, Tom contributes to the arrest of one drug seller. This latter wishes to take revenge on Tom. Reusi is finally dumped by her rich lover. Tom and Reusi finally stay together for the good sake of their daughter and start to have hapiness again. One stormy night when Tom is out for working late, 4 drunk men lead by the drug seller enter in Tom's house, rape his wife and kill his daughter. Tom chases them and kills them one by one but his life is wrecked. What a damned life... This movie about slum dwellers earned Bt1 million at the box office. In 1977 this movie was almost a clone of the popular newspapers' front pages as it dealt with drugs, rape, divorce, violence. Virtue is not rewarded. Sorapong Chatree got his first Thai cinema reward thanks to this movie (ตุ๊กตาทองตัวแรกของพระเอกสรพงษ์ ชาตรี).
