Somrak and See Wan love each other but Somrak is poor. See Wan's mother, being an alcoholic, wishes her daughter to marry Jit, Pho Jong's son. Jit is a useless guy and is only doing debts collection. Duangjai is Pho Jong's daughter. Jit tries to seduce See Wan. It causes a misunderstanding between See Wan and Somrak. Somrak is disappointed to see See Wan sitting on Jit's motorbike. The popular way to travel in the village is to use an iron buffalo (tiller with big wheels used in rice fields).

Jit promises to change and is convinced that a wedding with See Wan will make him a better man. Pho Jong organises an engagement parade to See Wan's mother house in order to ask for See Wan's hand. The mother Kam Soi is of course willing. Some other villagers tease Pho Jong that He is rich because of heavy interest (100ละสิบ) he is always asking for. It is a reference to famous movie มนต์รักลูกทุ่ง featuring the song สิบหมื่น. See Wan announces she refuses the wedding as she loves Somrak and she will not join the beauty contest.
