Dopo una serata con il professore e esperto d'arte Gissing interpretato da Stephen Fry (Kingdom, Bones, Sherlock Holmes, The Hobbit) e il banchiere Allan Cruickshank, Mike (Dougie Henshall -Collision, Primeval) organizza la rapina di una collezione d'arte privata di Edimburgo di proprietà di una banca nazionale.

Mike Mackenzie is a software entrepreneur who has sold his company for a substantial amount of money, but is now bored and looking for a new thrill. His new found wealth has funded a genuine interest in art so when his friend Professor Robert Gissing presents him with a plan for the perfect crime, he willingly helps set that plan in motion.
With a vast collection but limited wall space, the National Gallery of Scotland has many more valuable works of art in storage than it could ever display. The plan is to stage a heist at the Granton storage depot on "Doors Open Day" during which a selected group of paintings will be "stolen". The gang will then give the appearance of having panicked and fled without the works of art, however they will actually have switched the real paintings with high quality forgeries good enough to convince anyone investigating the matter that no theft has been committed.
As they begin to flesh out the plan, it becomes clear that they need some "professional assistance" and a chance encounter with Chib Calloway, a local gangster who Mike went to school with, fulfils that need.
