Ma's grant- mother (Juree Osiri) just died so Ma (Jintara Sookkapat) comes back from Bangkok to visit her domain in Isaan region. She had not met her grant-mother for many years as she went to Bangkok to study. A man called Phujai Li (Phairoj Sangwaribut) has organized all funerals without consulting her. Ma already has a fiance called Pradit but she discovers he is unfaithful, so she breaks up and goes back to the countryside. She does not want to sell her 300-rai land. She wants to handle by her-self. A local farmer called Wao helps her. Wao is in fact Phujai Li, spying secretly to see how Bangkokian people can adapt to countryside. Phujai Li’s mother (Pissamai Wilaisak) sends a local lady, called Pin, to help Ma. Ma accepts this lady (อัจฉราพรรณ ไพบูย์สุวรรณ) with her two children to stay in her home to help her as she was also dumped by her husband. There is often no official wedding in the countryside. People just stay together so social problems occur when separation happens. She finally works hard to maintain the farm. Anger happens when Ma understands that Phujai Li and Wao are the same person. Finally, Ma forgives Phujai Li. The Isaan village uses a cat in their rain-making procession (ประเพณีแห่นางแมว). The cat is carried around the village in a small cage, while the villagers make noise with musical instruments, to attract the attention of celestial gods. It works as rain is coming. Ma is busy preparing rice fields. Phujai Li loves Ma but she is still shocked by her fiance's behavior. On top of this, Phujai Li is chased by another local lady (Ampha Pusit). Phujai Li asks his mother to ask for Ma's hand as he does not dare. Ma accepts to become Phujai Li's fiancee even if she is not happy that he did not ask himself. Phujai Li decides to become a monk for one rainy season. As Pradip, older fiance of Ma, tries to befriend her, Phujai Li refuses to enter monkhood. Finally, Phujai Li becomes a monk for three months following his mother's wish to see him in yellow robes (ชายผ้าเหลือง). Pradip is chased away. Phujai Li and Ma can marry happily.
