ADGP Christopher Antony is an honest and efficient IPS officer and encounter specialist from the Kerala cadre who uses vigilantism and encounter killings as a tool for safeguarding women,children and other innocent and helpless people. He kills 4 people in an encounter for brutally assaulting and murdering a woman. Under pressure from the Human rights activists, CM Rajashekaran Menon is pressured by the Home Secretary and Christopher's ex-wife, Beena Mariam Chacko, to launch an investigation into the deaths of 5 youngsters. ACP Sulekha is appointed to lead the investigation, where she decides to unearth Christopher's previous encounter killings instead of probing by looking into the case files.

Sulekha learns that Christopher's motive to become an IPS officer and encounter specialist is due to some gruesome incidents during his childhood. Years ago, during a riot in Kerala, a group of young men used the situation to brutally rape and murder Christopher's sister. They also killed his parents and set his house on fire. A young Christopher seeked to avenge his loved ones and chased the perpetrators with a butcher's knife. However, Christopher was stopped by a kind and upright police officer, SP Vetrivel IPS. When Vetrivel learnt about the injustice that happened to Christopher's family, he shot the perpetrators to death. This incident inspired Christopher to become a police officer. It was Vetrivel who took care of the rest of Christopher's education, and later he cleared the civil service exam to become an IPS officer. After Christopher completed his police training, Vetrivel who was on deputation as the DGP in the Central Government, intervened to get Christopher his first posting as ASP in Madhya Pradesh. Everyday many women were raped and murdered by the feudal landlords. Christopher was very instrumental in capturing and killing the real perpetrators behind the brutal happenings and in no time, he became an encounter specialist. He was assisted by an honest and efficient cop, Sub Inspector Ismail who was his right hand man. Later, Christopher shifted his base to Kerala and was promoted to the rank of Superintendent of Police .

Later one day, he met Beena who was the Pondicherry District Collector regarding a series of robberies and murders which constantly took place in a densely forested area. Christopher and his team decided to take up the mission. The operation was completed successfully, but Ismail had succumbed to his injuries. At Ismail's funeral, Christopher came to know more about Ismail's family. Ismail's marriage was a love marriage and his wife had already passed away and that he had a daughter named Amina. Ismail's relatives were dead against accepting Amina. So Christopher took Amina as his own child and decided to look after her. Christopher was then posted as the SP of Crime Branch. After some days, Beena also shifted her base to Kerala. Later upon Beena's insistence and request, Christopher married Beena and they lived happily and peacefully. Later one day, at a hotel in Kochi, a group of girls were found heavily doped by a gang of young men. From the investigation, it was found out that the real culprit was Beena's younger brother, Sebastian who was a drug addict. Beena and her father Chackochan who was an MP along with Abhilash, settled the issue by paying a huge sum of money to each of the girls. Then one day, a lady who was working as a maid at Beena's father's home told Christopher that her daughter had been missing for a few days. Christopher decided to investigate and found out that Sebastian had brutally raped and murdered the girl under the influence of drugs and destroyed her body using a crusher and had also hidden the remaining body parts and hair in some statues in his father's ceramic factory. Sebastian was arrested by Christopher but Chackochan told Christopher that he will surely bail out Sebastian. The next day, at the court, Sebastian tried to escape from the clutches of the police by behaving very violently and snatched a rifle from a policeman to try and kill the victim's mother by hitting her on the head, but she was saved by Christopher who shot Sebastian to death. After this incident, Christopher and Beena were separated and later parted ways. With that, he had lost everything, but the only person who he had with him was his adopted daughter Amina. Later after a few months, Christopher rejoined service, but was made to stay away from law and order. He was posted in the DPCAW. After some years, he got promoted to the rank of ADGP.

Now in the present, Christopher's adopted daughter, Amina who is now an investigative lawyer and social activist, investigates the death of a woman and her father, who are actually the wife and father-in-law of a rich businessman, Sitaram Trimurthi Iyer. From the investigation, Amina deduces that Sitaram had actually killed his wife and father-in-law in order to usurp their properties. She shares her suspicions and doubts to Christopher. Later one day, Amina is found dead and brutally assaulted. With Amina's death, Christopher is completely shattered. Sulekha decides to take up the investigation of Amina's murder. A somewhat corrupt and psychopathic cop named DYSP George Kottrakkan is also included in the team. Christopher soon finds out that Sitaram had hired a dangerous criminal named Marimuthu to eliminate Amina. Christopher manages to track down Marimuthu in Tamil Nadu where Sulekha and team arrive to provide backup for Christopher. Sulekha hands over Marimuthu to George. But George who took bribes from Sitaram and also from his assistant Pathalam Suresh lets Marimuthu escape into the forest, where he is again successfully nabbed by Christopher. Christopher and his assistant, SP Vadivukkarasi calls Sulekha to a secret location where Christopher makes Marimuthu confess his crimes completely. Christopher also reveals Kottrakkan's corruptness and also his ties with Sitharam and also the cruelty shown by him towards Amina's friend, Susan. Christopher finally reveals the truth about the failure about the present legal system and policing system to Sulekha and also tells her that even if she arrests Marimuthu, he will definitely be freed by the judiciary. Sulekha later understands Christopher and decides to support him and stand by him completely and Marimuthu is hanged to death by Christopher in that hideout itself.

Later Christopher tracks down George and Suresh where he makes George to speak the truth. After George reveals Sitaram's name, Christopher shoots him to death and arranges Suresh to finish off Sitaram as Suresh had been fooled by Sitaram earlier. However, Sitaram manages to overpower Suresh and kill him. At that very instant, he was confronted by a police team headed by north zone ADGP Gaurishankar IPS who is Christopher's batchmate and close friend. Thus, Sitaram is arrested and sent to prison. Despite being in prison, Sitaram kills Beena using carbon monoxide poisoning by releasing the gas through the air conditioner in her room. This devastates Christopher, who is more determined than ever to kill Sitaram, once and for all.

Christopher is completely cleared of all charges and joins back his duty and is posted as the ADGP, Headquarters. He shoots Sitaram to death with the help of the jail superintendent, who is Amina's distant relative. Sitaram's death is written as an act of self-defence and the jail superintendent promises Christopher that he will look after all the further proceedings. A few weeks later, Christopher adopts the younger sister of the assaulted woman and moves on.
