He is planning to ask her hand to her parents. While Chaoba is bathing in the river, she is attacked by the crocodile. Chook meets Chaoba’s father Prachot (Mum Jokmok) but she has disappeared. Chook believes Chaoba rejects his request for wedding. Local village headman (พี่ผู้ใหญ่) is requested for help. He decides to consult a local master (อาจารย์). The master identifies that Chaoba is dead and that a danger in the river is threatening the whole village. Meanwhile villagers organise a boat race. The crocodile (ไอ้เข้) disrupts the race. Chook has serious arguments with some villagers led by Chat. Chat is claiming Chook just loses the race and invents the crocodile story as a pretext. So a fighting occurs. The master requests three days to prepare special weapon to kill the crocodile. Chook is not willing to wait and wishes to kill the crocodile by himself. During a dream, Chaoba ghost is back and tells Chook to beware some villagers wishing to kill him. Chaoba’s spirit (วิญญาณ) helps to chase away ruffians trying to kill Chook. The master tries to neutralize the crocodile, which rejects Chaoba from his body. Chook has to put a sacred thread around her neck. The spirit is captured into a earthen pot. This part reminds of movie Mae Nak Pra Khanong (แม่นาคพระโขนง). The master gives holy weapons to Chook and his friends to get rid of the crocodile. The crocodile is defeated but the master also dies being killed by the crocodile spirit.
