    Samuel, a cop, investigates the crimes of serial child abuse, where he receives a phone call from a child abuser who calls himself “Joker”. Samuel tracks his location, arrives at his place, and is killed by the Joker. The cases are picked up by Andrews Eappan from the Crime Investigation Department (CBCID).

Shattered, David takes her to the hospital where his wife, Dr. Michelle David, works. After recovering, Sarah reveals that it was Joker who attacked her. An enraged David and Michelle decide to find and kill him to protect other girls. David starts his own investigation, independent of the police, causing Eapen to become suspicious of him.

    Eapen discovers that David’s daughter was one of the Joker’s victims, and aggressively questions her at home while he is away. David warns Eapan for upsetting his daughter. Both of them start receiving calls from the Joker and compete that who will find and get to the Joker first. The Joker attacks Eapan and David, who later manages to overpower and kill him.
