For English-speaking audiences, one of the more unusual aspects of this Thai action film is the name of its producer, Pornpimol Poopilomlat. The film itself, however, hews fairly close to the director Kom Akadaet's popular technique of exploiting fight scenes as much as possible. Parakote (Sombat Metanee) is the father of an illegitimate child named Phayu (Sorapong Chatri). The two are destined to team up against their common enemies, and Phayu eventually learns the truth about his birth. The last, long gunfight determines which of the main protagonists will survive, and which will not.
