As a result of his victory over the fry, predators at the top of the food chain have begun to pay attention to him. With his infant son and wife in danger, Rama has no choice but to go undercover to enter the criminal underworld and rise through the ranks until he reaches the corrupt politicians and police officers at the top of the food chain.
In this way, Rama embarks on yet another journey of violence, one that will require him to forget about his past and assume the identity of the violent criminal known only as “Yuda.” A desperate all-or-nothing gambit to put an end to the corrupt enterprise necessitates him winning the trust of Uco — the son of a well-known gang kingpin — in prison.
