In a bandit raid that killed both his parents, 4-year-old WIRO SABLENG (‘Crazy Wiro’) is rescued and raised by an eccentric old female warrior, SINTO GENDENG (‘Screwy Sinto’). The perpetrator of the raid turns out to be Sinto’s former disciple, MAHESA BIRAWA, who turns his back on her and uses her ultimate fighting technique for his own vicious purposes.
Stung by betrayal and worried that Mahesa will grow even more dangerous, she teaches Wiro a secretive, legendary martial art called silat and grooms him to be the next 212 Dragon Axe Warrior. After 17 years of training, Wiro inherits the mighty 212 Axe and fighting style from his master, leaving the mountains he has called home to put an end to Mahesa’s evil plans.
On his journey to find Mahesa, Wiro, now called 212 Warrior, comes across a group of bandits planning to abduct the King’s sister, RARA MURNI. Wiro saves Rara and returns her to the King. On his journey, Wiro meets fellow travelers BUJANG GILA TAPAK SAKTI (‘Mad Mighty Fist’) and ANGGINI.
Wiro comes to understand the teachings of 212, the balance of contrary forces and the thin line between good and evil. He becomes determined to improve himself and once more embarks on a journey to fight evil and learn more about life and the art of silat.
