The red tattoo on Tok Long’s arm continues to arouse their suspicions. The urge to seek revenge for Tok Long continues to burn, especially more so with their highly proficient self-defence skills which was studied from their step dad.

The opportunity to leave their village in their mission to find Arfan is misused by all siblings. After locating Arfan in the beginning of their mission, they continue to investigate Tok Long’s past.

The confrontation with Botak becomes the turning point of their journey. The utterance of Lambang Merah from Botak’s mouth, when he was assaulted by Man’s henchmen catches the attention of Idrus and his siblings. In the end Idrus and his siblings manage to save Botak, and as a reward Botak provides them with lodging and a new career path.

Botak brings them to Joni Hitam. Joni happens to be an influential right hand manunderthe notorious secret society named Lambang Merah. Gira and Afran’s skills were enough to convince Joni Hitam to take the siblings in under his wings. Idrus agrees immediately as his prime objective is to expose the secret that is deeply entrenched in Tok Long’s heart.

Their potential and diligence leads them to an audience with Tiger Lang, the head of Lambang Merah. Tiger Lang urges them to stay on under his patronage with the promise of a life of luxury and wealth which they would not be able to achieve elsewhere. Idrus becomes cautious of the group as he worries he may be led astray, but agrees, in order to fulfil his objectives. It is further compounded by Giran who becomes obsessed with gaining wealth, and is consumed by the underworld. Deep in his heart, Idrus realizes the bane of ignoring Tok Long’s instructions but surges on with doubt.

But what was planned by Idrus was not to be. As a result of being basked in the lap of luxury and indulging with evil, Idrus’ primary mission dissipates with everyone…  Its obvious that illegal and underground activities can cloud human minds. It’s a fact that love can blind one’s journey. Whom one considers a friend, may not be one. Because of wealth, they are willing to kill each other. They are unable to differentiate between love and hatred because of their lifestyle picks. The relationship between the siblings becomes estranged. The journey to discover Tok Long’s secret continues to fade.  

The question that arises – will they still have the capability to uncover Tok Long’s and will they still have the capability to reunite?

Find out in your nearest cinema this September!
