When they risk their lives busting the Radebe gang, a violent mob ov supermarket thieves, they expect to receive the large reward. When their corrupt superiour withholds their reward on condition they'lose' some crucial evidence on another key case, Chili is seriously tempted. His partner tries to talk him out of it, but Chili is not convinced. For eight years they have been putting criminals away, they work overtime, weekends, no quesions asked. They have never taken a bribe or tampered with evidence, and for what? Chili can't pay his bills and Shoes is struggling to raise a family. It's only when Shoes threatens to end the partnership does he have second thoughts. When Chili infiltrates a cash-intransit heist gang he sees an opporuntity to participate in a once-off score. If he joins them, his share will be 400k. He gets his partner to assist him by threatening to end his career as a policeman if they don't do this. When one of the gang recognizes Chili as cop, Chili sends Shoes to arrest him and remove him from the equation. But Shoes is captured and dragged in front of the gang as proof that Chili is a policeman. Chili manages to convince the gang boss that he isn't a copy but struggles to save the life of his partner. Torn between participating in the score and saving Shoes, Chili attempts to do both. When it becomes clear that innocent guards are going to be killed during the heist, Chili must decide if he is going to let the heist go down or not. In a desperate attempt to save the guards, he blows his cover and despite every effort the guards are killed. The heist is successful and Chili is left for dead at the scene.
