The theft of a small holy relic, containing 2,500 year old remains of Buddha’s wisdom teeth, from a secluded Buddhist temple, leaves the sole surviving combatant monk, Pon, in a search to recover the stolen treasure from the perpetrator, Dam, and his greedy employer, Toohey. Pon’s quest leads him initially into Cambodia, where he finds Toohey, but both Dam, along with the relic, have gone to Pattaya. Thailand, as Toohey planned to exchange the item.
Three Englishmen, Stu, Spock and Nick, who are on their first vacation to Thailand, accidently stumble across the small golden box containing the remnants and, being unaware of the significance of the contents, they replace them with Nick’s false teeth, after he was involved in an accident. Pon catches up with the three and after a few calamitous adventures and, with Pon unaware of the new contents, the box is returned.
