A Bobohizan high priestess in the interiors of Sabah helps a young rape victim deliver her baby. However, the rapist comes to kill the baby to destroy any evidence of his actions. The young mother dies during childbirth and the rapist is stunned to see the disfigured face of his son. While the rapist is still in shock, the priestess kills him. The priestess senses that the baby is no ordinary child, but the Tombiruo, guardian of the forest. she floats him off into the river as an offering to the jungle in order to protect him from the outside world that would torment him for his looks. The Tombiruo is found by a former soldier who now lives as a hermit in the jungle. The soldier raises the Tombiruo as his own son by teaching him to control his powers through love. He gives the Tombiruo a dagger and tells him to use it to protect, not destroy.

Over two decades later, a multinational corporation, Anak Bumi is planning to build a dam in the jungle. The project would make its founders, brothers Berham and Juslan wealthier than they already are. However, Berham makes a shocking announcement during a press conference that his Anak Bumi will not be building the dam since it will cost many tribesmen and women in the jungle their home. Meanwhile, Salina's husband, forest ranger Amiruddin is on his way to meet his wife and in-laws at the press conference.

The press conference is interrupted when a nearby village is attacked by thugs from the city. Berham and his younger daughter, Salina rush over to help out. The Tombiruo and his father try to help the villagers fight off the thugs. However, the Tombiruo's father is killed by the thugs who then try to escape in their jeep. The Tombiruo tries to chase them down and they end up crashing into the car carrying Berham and Salina. Salina's husband, forest ranger Amiruddin finds the crash site and Salina dies in his arms. He finds Berham already dead and the masked Tombiruo attacking Juslan, who arrived before him. The Tombiruo runs away after Amiruddin shows up, leading Amiruddin to assume the Tombiruo murdered his wife and father-in-law. Amirudding swears to hunt down the Tombiruo and avenge their deaths.
