A farmer couple with two young daughters quit their land to find jobs and a better life in Bangkok. Wan and her younger sister Wannee have now grown up. Their father wants them to study up to university and become บัณฑิต (graduate). Unfortunately he died before during an accident on a construction site. The mother is working in a short time motel and washes bed sheet. As Wan studies are expensive and the mother has a small salary, the mother has no choice but to accept sexual proposals from a customer called Atasit in order to get money for her daughter studies. Meanwhile Wan meets a young man called Narat and a love story starts. Following her mother disease and expensive hospital fees, Wan has also no choice than to sell her body to Atasit to get money. Atasit wants to meet her again but this transaction was only financial and based on necessity (ความจำเป็น). Narat asks to marry Wan. Meanwhile Atasit also seduces the younger sister Wannee for similar financial issues. Wan asks him to stop but he refuses. All the women of the same family have the same fate with Atasit because they are coming from a poor background. The mother tries to help her daughters. The daughters try to help their mother. The movie ends up tragically. Wannee dies due to miscarriage and heavy loss of blood. Wan decides to kill Atasit to have him pay for his sins but her mother kills him first in order to take the judicial blame and avoid ruining all the efforts done by her and her former husband to have Wan become a successful graduate. Finally Atasit was Narat's father... This damned life mixing poor people from the country side and rich Bangkokian people ends up in a wreckage for all.
