This is a typical Thai melodrama with more than a dozen old and new songs that tend to override the dialogue. Salita (Nawarat Yukthanan) and Met (Sorapong Chatri) have just gotten married and are living very comfortably with his family. Salita's problem is that her mother-in-law is too solicitous -- she will not let Salita lift a finger to do anything. The young bride is unhappy because cooking is one of her most accomplished and favorite activities, so what should she do? Eventually, she convinces Met that they should move out, but her in-laws will not hear of it. Given no choice, Salita walks out one day and there is Danai (Aporn Tonnawannij), just waiting for her.
