Pod is your average country bumpkin who moves to find work in Bangkok despite the warning from his grandma: the day when Pod finds a job in the capital, she says, he'll wake up the next morning with a tail wagging out of his ass. Pod starts working in a tin sardine factory. One day Pod absent-mindedly cuts off his index finger and packs it into a can. That prompts him to run around Bangkok supermarkets tracking down his lost finger. Once reuniting with it, Pod decides to quit the job because he's afraid that sooner or later he'll lose his precious finger again.

Pod gets a new job as a security guard at a company. There he meets Jin, a wide-eyed maid who loves mopping the floor and carrying a mysterious white book that she cannot read. Jin is a woman who's chasing her dreams, and one of them is to be able to read the white book that holds the secret of her own life. Pod has a crush on Jin. He even quits the security guard job to drive a taxi, so that he'll be able to drive Jin around every day. When Pod finally confesses his feeling, Jin rejects him, and Pod is so sad that he thinks of committing suicide...
