Sadet Phi and Nong Jing have a daughter called Sa No Noi (Petchara Chaowarat). She gets a golden house (เรือนทอง) as a gift. Astrologers predict her a great future. A demon follows the family and wishes to kidnap Sa No Noi. Sa No Noi needs to leave the kingdom. She meets an hermit, who gives a magical medicine (ยาวิเศษให้คนตายฟื้นได้). Sa No Noi is coming from a palace (ชาววัง ) so she is not used to harsh life. She helps a poor girl called Kula, who has been bitten by a snake. They need to steal food to eat. They arrive in a city where the prince (Chaiya Suriyun) is sleeping for 7 years. Sa No Noi helps to prepare the magical medicine to wake him up. As Sa No Noi doesn't feel well while the Prince is awakening, Kula changes her clothes and pretends to be the one who saves the Prince (พระราชบุตร). Sa No Noi is disappointed (น้อยใจ) with Kula as she saved her life before. She becomes Kula's servant. Kula refuses to give back the medicine to Sa No Noi. The Prince wishes to help Sa No Noi. This movie features typical characters from 1960s movies. The leading actress (นางเอก) is a nice polite shy princess coming from a good family lady. The jealous lady (นางอิจฉา) seduces men first, kisses them or is ready to make love immediately without waiting the wedding. She has no education. She is poor, lazy and deceitful. To try to prevent the wedding the family gives difficult tasks for Kula to do (flower composition...). Only a good educated lady can execute such tasks so Kula forces Sa No Noi to do it for her. The prince leaves the palace for a government mission but in fact he wishes to find Sa No Noi's golden house to prove her real identity. He faces a typhoon but finally reaches Sa No Noi's kingdom and brings back the house. Under Sa No Noi's guidance, the golden house become a real house with servants. Sa No Noi's real identity is revealed and she forgives Kula. On the way back to her kingdom with the Prince, their boat is wrecked and they are separated. The prince meets an hermit. Sa No Noi meets again Kula who plays a trick with her despite all of her previous goodness. A noble man called Wilai meets Kula. She lies to him pretending she is a princess. Meanwhile Sa No Noi has been rescued by Wilai's parents. Sa No Noi delivers a baby, whose father is the Prince. Kula kidnaps the baby. The baby is rescued by another hermit. The baby is called Paiwan. Kula is captured by some robbers and become the leader's wife. While Sa No Noi is going back home, her convoy is attacked by the ruffians. The Prince just comes back and helps on time. The whole family is reunited. Kula is punished and transformed as a cow. The story of Sa No Noi is part of Thai folklore. This story is also available through a TV Thai serie (1984) and many cartoons. This old movie last two hours and fifteen minutes. It has a very good and colorful image quality. The last part of the movie is certainly too fast paced as it is difficult to narrate such a long story in only two hours.
