Rinichen is a self made right-hand man of businessman Lonappan. Over the years he takes advantage of Lonappan for solving shady problems. When everything seems to boilover at the gravy train he uses the opportunity and asks Lonappan to help him settle elsewhere with a jewellery shop. Rinichen who had a hard life and was from once well known family starts care evermore for money & status and life starts to make him pay for karmic debts of his unethical previous engagements.
