A man takes revenge on behalf of his handicapped sister by seducing the only daughter of the man who injured his sister. Petch is an engineer that Namneung falls in love with ever since she was still in high school. She is very happy when Petch tells her that he loves her and asks her to marry him, but Namneung's parents (father-Kriengsak, mother-Daranee) don't agree because they have a different social status. Phak (Namneung's friend) is very sad because he secretly loves her and does not pay attention to other women, but Alice loves him. Even though Numneung's parents don't agree, they get married and Petch takes Numnueng to his house. There, Nam Neung meets Taptim (Petch's mother) & Ploy (Petch's sister). They seem unfriendly and cold to her, especially Ploy. Ploy looks as if she hates Namneung from the first second that they meet. Namneung tries not to pay attention to it because she feels bad for her since Ploy is disabled (lame). One day, Ploy brings Rotjana home and tells her that Rotjana is Petch's wife. Namneung is shocked and very sad to know this. Petch tells her that Kriengsak (Namneung's father) had raped Ploy. Her father wanted to hide his fault so he drove his car to hit Ploy and disabled her. He says that Daranee (Namneung's mother) hired a man to attack Ploy. Petch says he has never loved Namneung. He has done everything just to convince her that he loves her.
