Sara (Rai Lakshmi), her husband Harsh (Zain Imam) and her brother Oscar (Vin Rana) are the owner of Josh team. The three business partners own a horse-racing team and their dream is to win the race course in an auction to be held in a few days. Here is the entry of Aditya (Aftab Shivdasani) who is a horseman and owns a racing team like Team Josh. After defeating Team Josh in a big race, Aditya offers partnership to Sara. Sara knows that this partnership will greatly increase her chances of winning the auction and she quickly accepts Aditya’s offer. At the same time, Harsh and Oscar suspect Aditya.
When Oscar begins to investigate Aditya, he is confronted with a secret that the ground under his feet slips. Actually, drug-trader Tony (Taher Shabbir) tells Oscar that he has already killed Aditya before four years. But how is this possible?
