This Thai story set in a small village in the 1930s is of unrequited love nearly conquering all and can be understood by any audience since its theme is simple and clearly presented. Paeng, the heroine (Chanuteporn Visitsophon) is in love with Lorr, a handsome and virtuous young man whom the villagers admire. Unfortunately, Lorr is quite willing to defend Paeng from any taunts that may come her way because she is physically not as attractive as her beautiful sister, but he loves the sister and not Paeng. Just when Lorr's wedding is being planned, he contracts malaria and while on his sickbed, it is Paeng who stands by him in a continual vigil and her sister (and his fiancée) who dallies with a handsome cousin. Although Paeng hides her faithfulness and love from Lorr, he finds out the truth and the two end up spending a night together -- a night that does not end as either could have imagined.
