He and his teammates are working hard to keep the peace in the streets of the Ottoman Empire. They are trying to catch the leader of the gun smuggling and organize intelligent plans to disclose the identity of this leader step by step.

However, one day, Mustafa and his close friend Ali (Cem Ucan) find themselves in a big ambush planned by a wealthy merchant Boris (Serhat Tutumluer).
