Three men head to a temple in the outskirts of the city to be ordained as monks. Anyone who wishes to be ordained as a monk there is said to be cursed. The person will die by the wrath of the Pee Nak - a mythical giant snake. Two of the men, Balloon and First, are gays who pledge to the deities that they would become monks if they won a lottery. The third man, Nong, is hoping to obtain better karma since his current life is very unlucky. His girlfriend has left him and he got cheated by his business partner. All three man know of the Pee Nak curse but they can't leave because anyone who steps out of the temple before his ordination will immediately die.
