The law catches up with the crafty Hustle conmen when corrupt police officer DI Fisk (played by Patrick Baladi) is bribed into bringing them down. Unaware of Fisk’s watchful eye, the gang moves in on their latest mark, Linda Runcorn (played by Nina Sosanya), the crooked CEO of an online hotel and restaurant guide.
They develop an inheritance scam to convince Linda a wealthy heir has left her valuable jewellery and an impressive estate. Meanwhile, Fisk arrests Sean’s ex-girlfriend, pickpocket Kat (played by Skye Lourie), on false charges, blackmailing her to spy on the team so he can catch them. Left with no choice, Kat persuades Sean to let her join the con. Things get heavier when Fisk demands that Kat plant cocaine in Emma’s bag, resulting in Emma’s arrest. With Emma in prison and the grifters under surveillance, there seems little way the Hustle gang can escape unscathed...
