Aamir Sherzai is responsible for the death of CIA operative Ed Gomez’s best friend Jason. Now Ed is all determined to eliminate Sherzai in The Beast, somewhere in the Khyber, Pakistan. Gomez has to penetrate one of world’s most vicious and dangerous terror groups by disguising himself as Sarfaraz Khan. But the CIA agent’s identity becomes a blur and he has to fight a battle within, before fighting it out in the Khyber. In the meanwhile, an Indian journalist by the name Rahul Sharma is held hostage within The Beast. He is trying his best to go back to the woman he loves the most. Also, a British white Muslim, Shahid Khan a.k.a. Shaun Marsh, also gets into the circle controlled by Sherzai, the new dangerous name in the Taliban’s Pakistan-wing. Will the three men successfully escape from the merciless edge of Sherzai’s machete?
