Khaem (เข้ม)(Amphol Lumpoon) is playing in an underground casino (บ่อนพนัน). He is a young man coming from a good family. His father has never time to take care about him as he is busy with his factory. The father is worried about his family name as Police often raids casinos but Khaem has no choice to find money (ไม่มีทางเลือก). The father is divorced. Khaem decides to go his own way and wishes to be a policeman. He has a good personality (บริสุทธิ์ทั้งใจทั้งกาย). Khaem is a new policeman (ผู้กองใหม่ ) sent in far South. He meets Toon (ตุ่น), who is a female teacher (ครู) in south of Thailand. Toon and Khaem know each other since childhood. Toon has come to far South of Thailand as she likes countryside life (ชีวิตบ้านนอก) despite harsh life (no electricity at night time, robbers). They were both sent to Pulakong (ปุลากง), which is a remote district in South of Thailand, where villagers are muslim and mainly speak Malaysian. Teacher Toon is helping the village to develop. She helps to resolve villagers problems. There is reminder that they are all Thai whatever the religion they follow. There are many robbers (โจร) and ruffians in the far south (คนร้ายไม่ชอบคนดี, สัตว์นรก). The teacher helps a robber Saliman but it turns bad. Hopefully Khaem can help on time. Saliman loves Noon also. He changes his behavior (เปลี่ยนตัวให้มีค่าสำหรับสังคม) but Toon sees him as a friend only. Khaem and Toon have love for each other but none dares to speak the first. A drama happens in the village. Toon's best Muslim friend suicides herself after an unwanted pregnancy with a Buddhist teacher. Shocked she decides to go back to Bangkok. Meanwhile Khaem is injured at the border. He is cured in Bangkok and a personal nurse is taking care of him. Believing there is no possible love with Khaem, Toon goes back to south of Thailand. Khaem follows her there and declared her love to her. This romance movie includes a few themes related to South of Thailand (different religion but same nation, help to local development, living in harmony), to people redemption (Saliman the robber can become a good man), to the family (parents to give time to their children).
