Poutou, a nubile maiden who dances at the temple, lives with her jovial father and lovely younger sister, Saplak. Poutou falls in love with Nyong, a musician new to the village. He returns her interest, so her father and she make plans for a marriage, and she arranges to perform her final temple dance. Then Nyong’s eyes light on Saplak. How will each character react?
