An unnamed country is in turmoil, marred by natural disasters,
corruption and lawlessness. Some people take justice into their
own hands, while others yearn for the promised leader to arrive.
A cop named Eros is investigating a case of five men who are burnt
to death in public after somebody screams “thief” at
them. A journalist named Janus is also covering the story. Soon
enough, the two are drawn into a maze of mysteries and murders.
Somewhere along the line, Janus discovers a secret, and everyone
he tells it to finds tragic death. When Eros comes across the secret
too, they realize that angel of death will go after one of them,
unless they find the promised leader first.
