Children interview an old lady about the life in the village before. Nowadays farmers only grow rice species giving harvest in 3 to 4 months and use a lot of pesticide. A man is selling the house in which his father is still living as it is made of old teak, so it has some reselling value. A man has family issue as his wife left him. His car runs of petrol and stops by near a Buddhist temple. Nobody from his family is willing to help him as he calls them by phone. Only the temple abbot gives help, i.e. allowing him to sleep, preparing a bed for him, giving him food for breakfast, giving him petrol for him to continue his journey.
