At a party, Ek (Sorapong Chatree), successful overseas student, arrives with his parents (Somchai Samipak and Marasri Bangchang). He meets Uma, an elder woman, who is attracted by him. She asks him to send her home. Afraid to succumb to Uma, he flees. The next day, he meets his old friend Kowit. Ek finally declares his love to Uma. Kowit (Krung Srivilai) is trying to seduce Uma for years but it stayed at friendship level only. Uma accepts to go out with Ek. Phi Uma is drunk. Ek is ashamed to get a room from Boo Wibunnan, hotel manager. Uma's younger sister, Pracha / Pat (Pawana Chanajit), has just finished her studies in Chiang Mai. Uma makes Ek to promise not to ever foul with her sister. Kowit wishes to marry Uma. She is older then Ek so it won't be accepted by Thai conservative society. Uma only respects (นับถือ) Kowit. Pat is coming back. Ek and Uma always need to hide. Ek is tired by such relationship that cannot blossom. Ek's parents push him to meet Pat so he accepts to go shopping with her. Uma warns him he will be heartbroken (เธอจะเสียใจ) but he doesn't believe Uma. Pat is surprised as some people call Ek as khun Sangkom. Ek discloses he loved a woman before, but it is now over (สิ้นสุดแล้ว) and he has to use another name due to privacy protection. Uma is aware. Pat learns finally that Ek had a relationship with Uma. Ek claims it was due only to mood (เหล้า) and alcohol (เหล้า). Pat is now teacher in Pattaya. Ek gets a room there as overseas student (นักเรียนนอก) and follows her. He justifies love (ความรัก) vs lust (ความใคร่). Ek wishes to marry Pat. Pat refuses to marry her elder sister's husband (ผัว)! He insists on following her everywhere. She is going to marry another man called Amnat. Kowit visits Ek and punches him as Ek justifies himself by Uma's own desires (ความต้องการของพี่Uma). Kowit and Uma finally get engaged. Prat has quit her school. Ek is ready to die to marry her (ยอมตาย). He storms Uma's home and learns about the coming wedding. He races to reach it on time and brings a mess in the wedding. Pat flees with Ek. Uma and Kowit let them go as it is impossible to stop such strong real love. This modern movie from mid 1970s put the stress on feminine desire. Most of the previous Thai movies focus only on male desire.
