Aamir is a 21-year-old resident of a big city in which criminal and law enforcement elements coexist in an uneasy calm. Crime is on the rise, but life goes on as normal in the wealthier quarters of the city. Neeta is older than Aamir, and more pragmatic, but his obsession for her only grows stronger by the day. However, when he is made to helplessly watch as she gets raped by a local criminal, Aamir's life is irrevocably altered. He vows to avenge her by going after the hoodlums responsible. Guided by a cynical cop, he learns the realities of vigilante life. Even as Neeta rebuilds her life, one painful day at a time, Aamir follows the path of destruction. How will events in his life unfold?
