On the way to museum, Tracy and his assistants (Pongo, Hank) are attacked (Adinan Singhiran). They meet Cheetra (Metta Roongrat), expert in old jewellery. A poisoned butterfly with a microphone is found in the prince room. Preeya, Mr Parkson's girlfriend, is identified as the spy inside Prince Kula's home. Tracy starts to suspect Dr Barrington and Mr Parkson. As it is a 1960s movie, James bond's gadget is used to find car location. The fifth section of the necklace has disappeared since many years. Cheetra brings Tracy to see the Royal Barge procession. This movie offers unique opportunity to see colorful Bangkok fifty years ago as many Thai movies fifty years old are often in bad condition. Old Mrs Mom Chan Phuangwan announces to Tracy that Dr Barrington has been found dead. Cheetra brings Tracy to Surin elephant festival. Prince Kula has to ride an elephant. Mr Parkson kidnaps Cheetra as she is the only to decipher the secret message included in the necklace and leading to an ancient city in the jungle.
