Determined to prove his innocence; she carried out her own investigation and finds the actual robber; Danny Frimpong (John Dumelo).
She threatens him but offers him a deal; to rob the bank again with similar methods. They are successful in the robbing the bank, Effie now sets her sights on a jewellery warehouse and she wants Danny to rob it.
With a lot of jewellery and money at stake, each one of them tries to outwit each other with medleys of smart thinking as they plan and execute the robberies, but no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare them for the dangerous enemy, an enemy Effie least expected and never saw coming with surprising twist.
