    • When King Bayinnaung led his army to invade, Ayutthaya lost the war after a long continuous battles by 1569 and end her independency.

      However, some said that the collapse of the Ayutthya Kingdom could not be explained only by the armies from Hongsawadi. They said that the cause might be the “Black Death” that wipe out the residents.

      In a small village in Ayuthhaya, while people are frightened by the war and some left their home to safety, some stayed behind and faced the coming of the catastrophe that can be counted as the last straw which would shake all morale and endlessly lit up the fear of the people.

      The body of Toon the blacksmith’s assistant and a big strong person, was found with many animal bite-like wounds and some other villagers were dead without any reasonable causes, and the body counts kept on increasing. Some blamed the hungry ghosts, some blamed the plague that came with the Portuguese. But nobody could find out the real cause until all the corpses transformed themselves into a kind of living dead called ‘The Black Death’ who fearlessly bit and ate the villagers, even the monks can not exorcised them, no herbs nor medicine will cure them, no weapon will ever stop them.

      The surviving villagers band themselves together to fight the threat. The group consisted of Thep, the drunkard whom many believed that he used to be the sergeant who betrayed his troops to Hongsawadi to save his own life. Kong, the temple orphan who was aiming high to win the heart of the wealthy girl Mien. While Mien who was the daughter of the rich merchant would run away from home to prove her love. Kwan the village’s playboy who frequented the local brothel and Ploy the young prostitute who was pretty and shapely but deaf and dumb. Bua, the lady blacksmith who was as good a fighter with various weapon as a man. Her archenemy Jan, a greedy and selfish owner of the brothel, with his loyal slaves; Lek and Noi. However, the fates of these villagers seems destined to be “survived without souls or be alive in the bodies of the Black Death”
