With the help of a woman follower who has fallen in love with him, Carding was able to locate the triggerman and succeeds in exacting his revenge.

Instead of returning back to his family, he chooses to rejoin the outlaw band and eventually becomes the terror of the province. Meanwhile, Ben (Ben Perez), a police sergeant who is Conching's sweetheart, pleads with Carding’s family to ask him to surrender but his pleas fall on deaf ears.

Neneng (Mona Fernandez), Carding’s sweetheart, follows him to his hideout and there, she marries him and bears him a son. Carding's infant son dies and when Miguel, his brother, dies also, grief makes Carding go out on a killing rampage.

Carding and Ben come face to face and Ben again asks him to surrender. Instead of listening to Ben, Carding tries to shoot him. But before he can kill Ben, Conching who has come to realize how bad her brother has become, picks up Ben’s rifle and shoots Carding. Carding falls and in death, his right hand is seen tightly clutching a big crucifix. (Source: Literary Song-Movie Magazine)
