A group of ruffians (Pinyo Parnnui) indulging in drugs and alcohol is terrorizing a slum. Mateson (Aranya Namwong) is married to Atisak. They have child called Pheung (Lalana Sulawan). Atisak has a mistress so Mateson has no choice but to divorce. The house remains under Atisak's name as she made the mistake to give him money in order for her parents to believe he was a richer bachelor (ผู้อุปถัมภ์). They have to move in a slum to get cheap rent. They get some support from their aunt (Metta Roongrat). Mateson is looking for a job. Karucha (Sombat Methanee) interviews her. Hearing the unfair rumors on Mateson, he decides to recruit her. Karucha has also a daughter. A fight happens between Karucha and Atisak as they meet in a restaurant. Police, led by police inspector Lak Apichat, is looking for evidence that the ruffians are selling drugs in the slum. Karucha wishes to marry Mateson but she refuses. Meanwhile police shoots the ruffians. Their leader, injured, consigns a bag of heroin to Pheung. When Mateson is back, drug is given to police. Ruffians promises to take revenge on the mother and the daughter. Police is looking after their house. One evening as Karucha couldn't send them back home as his daughter has to be sent to hospital, they get caught in a serious storm and the ruffians catch them inside the slum as the taxi refuses to go up to their home. Both get raped. Mateson still refuses to go in Karucha's home. Pheung remains in a shocked state despite support of the doctor (Wiyada Umarin). The ruffians get released later. Mateson decides to take revenge by herself as men never take responsibility. She frames Atisak in a trap by disguising herself as a black prostitute. Atisak's new girlfriend, being jealous, shoots him. She learns how to make up well. She then shots three ruffians by attracting one of them by playing a junky. All those killings start to have an impact on Mateson's spirit. People start to make a link between the ruffians killings one by one and the number of dolls given to the daughter. Killing happen in atrocious ways such as acid and cut by a train on railway. Two are left, i.e. the leader Yong (Somsak Chaisongkram) and Paew (Somphob Benjatikul). Paew discovers that she is Mateson but finally all die. Mateson has become crazy. She succeeds to kill them one by one but her eager wish to take vengeance leads her to madness.
