Because the movie combines more than one story, there are multiple plots going on. Wikipedia has listed each one. For “A Dame to Kill For”:
Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) is summoned by his former lover, Ava Lord (Eva Green), who wants his help to escape her abusive husband, billionaire Damien Lord (Marton Csokas). However, Dwight soon learns that Ava’s true intentions are more sinister than they appear.
As for “Just Another Saturday Night”:
On the night John Hartigan meets up with Nancy in “That Yellow Bastard”, Marv (Mickey Rourke) regains consciousness on a highway overlooking the Projects, surrounded by dead young men, and unable to remember how he got there.
In terms of “The Long Bad Night,” which is said to be the original story:
Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a cocky gambler, disguises a darker mission to destroy the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game. He beats the wrong man and events take a turn for the worse. Along the way, he meets a young stripper named Marcy (Julia Garner).
And, lastly is “The Fat Loss”:
Set after Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis) suicide at the end of “That Yellow Bastard”, this story centers around Nancy (Jessica Alba) trying to cope with his death.

Though Sin City 2 is supposed to be a killer film, it’s also said to be following normal protocol when it comes to sequels. Screen Rant writes:
Sin City 2 is heading the prototypical sequel route, where everything about the first film is amplified; here, that includes an even bigger star-studded cast, extremely stylized cinematography (bordering on experimental) and green screen effects that allow Miller’s black-ink-on-white source material to seem alive and breathing, and villains who are somehow badder than the yellow-skinned pedophiles, cannibal priests and murderous thugs in the first movie.
