Kla is a Thai captain, whose cargo is berthing in Hong Kong a few days. Saonai hits his small pinnace and he falls into the water. Love starts between Saonai and Kla. Khun Wang continues to look for Saonai following her father's orders. Ruffians hit Kla and bring back Saonai to her father. The father wants a good husband (มีนามมีฐานะ) for his daughter and not a sailor. Kla knows the truth about Saonai thanks to the old lady. Saonai is a modern lady believing in love and heart choice. Her father wishes to marry her to Khun Wang (พ่อใจร้ายไม่เห็นใจ). But Khun Wang promises to help Saonai to find Kla. Kla is back to Thailand disappointed by Saonai’s lies. In Thailand a young lady, called Porn, loves Kla but Kla indulges in alcohol as he cannot forget Saonai. Saonai arrives in Thailand and looks for captain Kla at the Bangkok port. Kla already resigned from his job. Saonai looks for him in Bang Kapi district. Thanks to an old colleague, Kla is aware that Saonai is looking for him. But they miss each other. Saonai wishes to kill herself. She is helped by Porn. Kla's younger brother, Keng, meets Saonai at Porn's house. She is renamed as Araya.

Saonai fails to meet Kla at Keng's home but understands he is the one she was looking for. Keng is aware of Saonai's love towards Kla. Disappointed by this news, he has a car accident and is almost blind. Anyway he told Kla the good news about Saonai. Meanwhile love emerges between Khun Wang and Porn. Following some last minute misunderstandings (อกหัก), Saonai and Kla are reunited. Three couples have now happiness as Keng falls in love with Khun Wang’s younger sister. This old 1973 movie still features beautiful colorful picture and songs. Aranya Namwong is shining. This movie features an homage to the Chao Phraya river, an homage to the Thai King and the Thai Queen during their birthday celebrations with colorful lightings in Bangkok, an homage to the good Chinese Thai relations.
