Fast as the wind, a group of young monks gallops through the wild forest in northern 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 Hua Mae Kham, a village, 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. The abbot wants to bring the boy to the monastery in order to educate him and provide him with a better future. As all the kids there, Pumpui will learn about discipline and responsibility.
