A monk comes to a small city and takes up residence at a small Buddhist temple. With his no-nonsense advice and humble ways, a new monk builds a following that starts to rival a flashy scam temple across town, making an enemy of its operator (Somlek Sakdikul).



Another popular comic, Petchtai Wongkamlao, is featured in a small role.
