Synopsis
Mak leaves for Bangkok and is seriously wounded in the Chiang Toong War. His wife, Nak, dies in childbirth, together with her stillborn child. Mak returns and continues his life with his family,
unaware that his wife is now a ghost. The legend of Mae Nak Phra Khanong is well-known in Thailand and serves as the film’s influence. The tale has been depicted cinematically many times since the silent era and has even been made into an opera Mae Nak by Thai composer Somtow Sucharitkul.
