Her last big masterstroke is the theft of a priceless Rembrandt painting (stolen from an office). But no one suspect of her, instead all the eyes are under Robert "Mac" MacDougal: a professional (and retired) thief who specializes in international art.

Gin even offers herself at the "Waverly Insurance Company" to set MacDougal up and to capture him using as a bait a big theft proposition (her real intentions are that MacDougal can be of great help for her thefts).

She encounters with him claiming that she is a professional thief herself. She promises that she will help him steal a priceless Chinese mask from the well-guarded Bedford Palace. Mac agrees and they both travel to Scotland and plan the complicated theft at Mac's hideout, an isolated castle.

Aaron Thibadeaux, apparently the only ally that Mac has and trusts, arrives with supplies for the heist. While Mac is busy making final preparations, Gin contacts her boss at the insurance company, Hector Cruz, from

a payphone, and informs him of Mac's whereabouts. Menwhile Gin also tries to seduce Mac, but he makes sure to keep Gin's romantic advances at bay, unsure if she is a true partner in crime or an ambitious career woman on a mission. After they have stolen the mask, Gin finally confess to Mac that her insurance agency job is the real cover. She also tells him that she has planned an even bigger heist in Kuala Lumpur: $8 billion from the "International Clearance Bank" in the North Tower of the Petronas Towers.

After the heist, Mac catch all the money and tells Gin to meet him the next morning at the Pudu train station.

Gin arrives at the stationwaiting for Mac. He shows up late with Aaron Thibadeaux, who reveals himself with fellow FBI agents. He explains that Cruz is here and that the FBI has been looking for her for some time. Two years ago when Agent Thibadeaux caught and arrested him, Mac made a deal to help the FBI arrest Gin, as she was the primary target all along.

However, the aging thief has another plan: to help Gin escape. Mac slips Gin a gun and quietly explains that he returned only seven of the eight billion dollars they had stolen electronically in the heist. Gin then pretends to hold Mac hostage at gunpoint, threatening to shoot him if the agents follow her.

She boards a trainand the FBI heads to the next station. Gin jumps trains mid-station and arrives back at Pudu. She tells Mac that she needs him for another job and they both board a train.
