Zachariah Pothen (Dhyan Sreenivasan) is a rich orphan and a bully who chases after girls in their campus with his friends Das (Aju Varghese), Devan (Yazir Saleem), Prakashan (Deepak Parambol) and Aravindan (Arjun Nandhakumar). However, the power dynamics in their group often fluctuate and create discomfort, leading to treachery that ends up taking lives. Years later the same group is haunted by serial killing and the police are trying to unravel the mystery. Circumstances point police to suspect Zacharia, who was the prime accused for murdering Devan and Gayathri (Gayathri Suresh) on the day of their marriage long ago, and has been missing since then. The movie further reveals Prakashan and Aravidan murdered both Devan and Gayathri as a part of their treacherous plan. Zachariah too is killed by them and they hide his body to pin the other murders on him. Das was a witness; 20 years later he has started the killing spree out of revenge.
