Summary A very old, wealthy Thai aristocrat who owns a hair treatment business wants to repay a debt to his dear Indian friend, now deceased, by having his son marry his friend's daughter, Sugar. But Manas is a useless playboy who has never made anything of himself. Manas agrees only after his father promises to give him part of his inheritance after the wedding. Manas then promises part of this money to his girlfriend, who he really loves and wants to marry if she will go along with his 'marriage' to Sugar. Not hiding his true situation, Manas expects to get his money. But his father raises the stakes when he finds that Manas has lied about who he spent his marriage night with. The old man offers to give him a larger piece of his inheritance if Manas will produce a child with Sugar. How he will do this becomes a problem when Sugar rejects Manas in the bedroom.
