Petchara, aware of this, is disappointed by Mitr. Petchara’s blind grandmother is played by veteran actress Malee Wetpraseri. It is Petchara’s birthday. Adul changes the content of a gift offered by Mitr. It is a trick to spoil love between Mitr and Petchara as it starts to emerge. He then offers a proper gift to Petchara. Sawin prevents both of them to fight and asks Petchara to go back home. It seems that Chadaporn is unhappy with Sawin and asks him to push Petchara away from Mitr. Following a fishing trip, Sawin falls in the sea during a storm. Petchara and Dokdin need to find a job and then work as coolie in a construction site.

Due to issues with ruffians as they are coming from a rich lineage, Petchara Chaowarat and her mum have to flee. Petchara has to wear boy clothes since childhood to deceive ruffians. Being an adult, she then drives a taxi to earn a living and support her mother. Mitr Chaibancha meets Petchara two times, once when she is a beautiful lady and once when she is a taxi driver. Mitr cannot find the beautiful lady anymore as Petchara’s mum forbids her to wear feminine clothes again. Mitr is looking for a lady with a red emerald, who is Petchara's mother. Mitr uses Petchara as the taxi driver to find the lady. But ruffians kidnap the mum to get the red emerald. Finally Mitr, Petchara and her real father contribute to release the lady. The movie ends happily. In this movie, Petchara Chaowarat has short hair. It looks like in this 1968 period, she changed her look and her short hair style can also be seen in other 1967/1968 movies such as ปูจ๋า.

Main actress: Suthisa Putnuch

A local troop plays traditional theater (เล่นละคร) in front of a pleased audience. The actors sing and dance well (รำดีดี). Middle age women give flower garlands (ดอกมาลัย) to the handsome main actor. Manager (ผู้จัดการ) Thongdam supervises the troop. Thongdam is fond of a young dancer called Maram but the love is not reciprocal. An old master is always teaching constantly the dancers and singers to look for perfection. Before representations actors pay respect to their master and spirits (ไหว้ครู). The two leading actors are handsome actor Boon Ek (พระเอก) and young lady Kathin (นางเอก). A high society young woman from Bangkok, called Waew, likes the handsome actor (เสียงดี - รูปหล่อ). She has a fiance called Prachalin already. Waew's father wishes to take Boon Ek to Bangkok to become a famous singer in nightclubs. Boon Ek refuses as he cannot leave his master but he falls under Waew's charm (ถูกเสน่ห์). It is the opposite of standard scenario as this time the rich lady seduces the poor man. The troop (โรงละคร) always moves from one temple to another. Beautiful representations with colorful costumes are shown. Manora (โนราห์) dance is like a bird dance. Waew brings Boon Ek to old style nightclub with singers and couples dancing. There is an opposition between traditional arts and modern songs, between Lakorn (ละคร) actors and Bangkok singers. A few beautiful 1960s romantic songs are featured in this two hours movie. Following a trip to Bangkok Boon Ek comes back drunk. He never missed a performance. His performance is a disaster (คนอะไร!) as he is too drunk. He has big hope (มีหวัง) for a career (ดารานักร้อง) in Bangkok and wishes for good money. Katin gives back to him her fiancee ring. The old master is very sick. Almost no spectators are paying to view the theather performances since Boon Ek left. The troop is out of cash. Vaew's heart balances between two men, her fiance and Boon Ek. The old teacher will not ask Boon Ek to come back (ยอมตายดีกว่า). Waew's fiancee, Prachalin, is a former singer and compositor. He prefers to lose Waew than a good singer! Thongdam is selling his own gold jewelry to simulate customers renting the troop. He even takes a life insurance (ประกันชีวิต) as he knows he is very sick. Waew doesn't love Boon Ek as he is a countryside guy. She is just having fun. Thongdam dies. He legates his money to the troop. To thank him, Malam decides to learn to dance to try to replace Boon Ek. Boon Ek is now a TV star (ดารา tv) and comes back to his province for singing. He declares his love again to Kathin through a song while she is the audience. She leaves the concert crying. He comes back during a lakorn representation and promises not to leave again. The Bangkok buzz is not for him. This is veteran actor Manop Aussawathep's first movie. It has a few similitudes with Cherd Songsri's movie Nora (โนห์รา) regarding traditional arts protection and conservation. It still features a very nice color picture for a 40 years old Thai movie. This movie was directed by the General Major His Royal Highness Prince Bhanu Yukol, a pioneering Thai filmmaker. He is the uncle of famous director Prince ChatriChalerm Yukol.

Sombat wants to see who is the young man called Somchai (สมชาย ศรีภูมิ) trying to date Sopha. Sombat seems to be an administration officer working in the forest. Katoua (สาวกรุงเทพ) falls from the stairs. It seems that Katoua was never really a mountain people but was sent in the North of Thailand by her father in order to be safe. Somchai and his men try to force in order to enter in the forest. Following a fist fight between Sombat and Somchai, they become friends. Sombat is following a ruffian who succeeds to escape a first time but finally this latter gets strangled by a big snake. The second reel is in poor condition.

Yuak (Dokdin Kanyaman) is involved in a shooting with police. He is part of a drug gang selling cannabis (กัญชา) hidden in garlands sold by kids. Yuak is finally arrested and spends 6 years in jail. His release happens just during Songkran period. His relative has taken care of his now grown-up niece, Klong (Mayura Thanabutr) (เด็กสลัม). Local policeman warns Yuak (หม้าว้ด) to beware of any misconduct if he doesn't want to go to jail again. Klong's mother Kae Son has left and stopped sending money to her. The mother went to live with a ruffian called Rot (Choomporn Theppitak). He is a violent man stealing Klong's school fee. Rot is now involved in cannabis traffic also and has a new wife. While Yuak, Klong and Songthai (Suriya Chinaphan) are playing music, police arrests some drug traffickers nearby. Afraid of police, Yuak flees in front of inspector Pheung's (Sombat Methanee) despite being innocent. They are arrested and then released but Pheung gets scolded by Klong. Prachuap (Prachuap Ruekyamdee) is a doctor fighting drug usage. He is the father of one of Klong's best friend, Phanit. Pheung is Phanit's brother. Pheung's girlfriend, Chat, dislikes immediately Klong as she is having a famous family name (สกุล) which is improbable as being a poor girl from slum (สลัม). Klong and Yai have issues with Rot and it ends up at the police station but Rot flees before as he is involved in narcotics. Yai is severely sick. Klong has no money to cure her so one of her friends in the slum sacrifices herself with men to find the money. Following an advice from Yuak, it is discovered that Chaiyut (Lak Apichat), Chat’s secret lover, is involved in drug trafficking with Rot. Following gunfight with Pheung, Rot is shot. Chatchai, Phanit's boyfriend, is also involved in the traffic. Songthai helps Phanit to flee from Chatchai. Phanit and her friends are addicted so a detoxification is needed with special herbs tea by Yuak. Prachuap hits Songthai believing he mistreated his daughter. It is a weird situation as despite having a father fighting against drug usage, a policeman brother fighting against traffickers, Phanit is still a drug addict. Prachuap finds that Klong is the lost granddaughter (หลาน) of a rich heiress. Romance starts between Klong and Pheung. The old lady caused Klong's parents to split up as she couldn't accept a poor maiden for her son. So knowing this, Klong leaves her being very angry. Pheung understands Klong’s kindness versus Chat’s selfishness. Meanwhile Chat organises the kidnapping of the old lady. Klong and Pheung help on different side to neutralize Chaiyut and his team. The old lady is freed. Ruffians are shot by Pheung. Happiness can resume in the family. Dokdin's movie แม่ดอกกัญชา is a high criticism of usage of cannabis in Thai society, either in poor neighborhood or either high society. Cannabis sinners are shown on a torn tree (Buddhist symbolism). Dokdin’s movie highlights drug traffic, prostitution and drug taking in slums. As usual, Dokdin movie mixes comedy, romance and action.
