Couple hours after the Jakarta apartment raid, rising gangster Bejo assassinates Andi for taking charge after the death of Tama Riyadi. The only surviving police officers of the raid, Rama, Bowo and Wahyu, meet with Bunawar, the trustworthy police Andi sent him to at the previous film's end. After sending Bowo to receive medical attention and executing Wahyu, Bunawar invites Rama to join a small anti-corruption task force which seeks to expose police commissioner Reza's backroom dealings with the Bangun and Goto gangs. While Rama initially declines, he ultimately assents after learning of his brother's murder by Bejo and the imminent threat to his family.
To ingratiate himself into Bangun's organization, Rama assaults the son of a politician who opposed the family, earning imprisonment with Bangun's son Uco. Rama, under the alias "Yuda", saves the mobster's life during a prison riot. Bangun subsequently hires 'Yuda' when the latter's prison sentence ends. As 'Yuda' proves his value to the organization and earns the family's trust, rifts grow between him and the unreliable Bunawar. Uco grows increasingly discontented with his father's lack of faith in his abilities and placidity towards the Japanese, desiring to take on a larger role in the mob's operations.
