In Nagaland, Gul Mohammed, a sniper from Afghanistan breaks his way out of an army cordon, killing a young bystander in the process. The hunt for the sniper begins. In Cochin meanwhile, a young girl is kidnapped, raped and tortured to death, and her body burnt to prevent identification.

The man responsible is a shadowy figure called the grey man. The body is identified as that of Priya, the daughter of an army officer, Eswaran, serving in Nagaland, who happens to be the commander of the team searching for the sniper. Eswaran's friend Murthy, whose daughter is also kidnapped, is murdered and a police inspector Thomas seems to be involved in the murder which is committed by a group of religious fundamentalists.

Sniper is the horrific and thrilling story about the quest for the 'grey man' and Eswaran's resolve to avenge the death of his daughter.
