A poor Thai village treasures little else but Ong-Bak, a statue of Buddha that is monetarily valuable and said to bring good luck. When a thief from Bangkok steals its giant head the village's fiercest fighter, Ting (Tony Jaa) volunteers to recover it.
In Bangkok Ting meets some individuals who speak the same regional dialect, leading him to believe that they could be connected to the theft. His hunch is correct. Soon Ting is entangled with Komtuan (SuchaoPongwilai), an elderly gangster whose underlings possess Ong-Bak. Now the village boy must battle his way into Komtuan's hideout to retrieve the statue.
