Fast as the wind a group of young monks gallops through the wild forest in the north of Thailand, close to the border of Burma and Laos. Their monastery is located in the so called "Golden Triangle" a popular location for crime and drug distribution.

With their abbot Phra Khru Ba Neau Chai the monks are on their way to the village Hua Mae Kham, where they are about to meet 7 year old Pumbui, a little thief and liar.
His parents aren't able to take care of him properly, which makes the little boy an easy victim for a career in drug dealing. That is why Abbot Phra Khru Ba Neau Chai wants to take the boy to the monastery, to educate him and provide him a better future. As all the kids there, Pumpui will learn about discipline and responsibility.
