A middle-aged man leaves an office in the Petronas Towers after a botched robbery, while being pursued by two assassins. When cornered, the man is hit by a bicycle and seriously injured, leaving him in a coma.
Meanwhile, Vasu Rajagopalan, a doctor who recently moved to Kuala Lumpur along with his pregnant wife Aatirah, is assigned to the hospital where the comatose robber was admitted. After spoiling an assassination attempt on the thief’s life, he contacts the police, who assign the case to Inspector Kalpana Rangaswamy. She gives Vasu her contact number, and advises him to call her if he finds anything suspicious. Upon returning home, a man attacks Vasu and knocks him unconscious, before kidnapping Aatirah. When Vasu regains consciousness, he receives a call from the attacker, who orders him to release the thief from the hospital in exchange for Aatirah. Meanwhile, Kalpana discovers the identity of the thief: KK, a known criminal and former police officer wanted for theft and smuggling. She rushes to the hospital with her associates, Navin and Catherine, narrowly missing Vasu, who had managed to exfiltrate KK from the hospital.
Kalpana’s rival team, led by Deputy Commissioner Vincent Rajadurai, known for his brutal way of solving criminal cases, is also hot on the heels of the KK case. He explains to Kalpana that KK is related to the recent murder of a wealthy industrialist and warns her to step aside, to which she refuses. Meanwhile, Vasu demands that KK release Aatirah at KL Sentral, in exchange for him being safely delivered, to which he agrees. At the exchange point, Aatirah and KK are almost about to be exchanged, but the two assassins who had chased KK earlier arrive, forcing the duos to escape. The assailant leads Aatirah back to her hiding place, but he is killed by the two assassins, who abduct Aatirah by force.
