Brothers Ad (Syafie Naswip) and Am (Shaheizy Sam) work for a baby trafficking syndicate run by an elderly woman named Mama. Their job is to courier babies to the couples who have bought them. While Am is struggling with his gambling addictions, Ad on the other hand decides to enter a B-Boy dance competition in hopes of winning the prize money. When Ad's best friend, Razak's sister Hawa (Sarah Ali) winds up pregnant and embroiled in Mama's syndicate, Ad realises he can no longer be a bystander.
