Missy (Adrienne Pickering) is on trial for murdering her fiancé. The only way Cleaver (Richard Roxburgh) can save her is to expose the conspiracy by the security apparatus Joshua (Martin Henderson) humiliated. Assisted by a mysterious smoking man, he follows the money trail to ASIO, the CIA, and towards information that may bring down the international banking system and several governments. Kirsty (Robyn Malcolm) is furious that Cleaver is spending so much time with Missy, but when Col (Steve le Marquand) threatens to express that disapproval in the usual manner, Cleaver recognises that Col has a secret. Delirious after a mosquito-induced broken arm, Barney (Russell Dykstra) confesses to Scarlet (Danielle Cormack) that he has met someone else. Hurt and confused, Scarlet allows an innocent lunch with Harry-Sorry-David (Matt Day) to progress down a primrose path that, with some help from Cal McGregor (Damien Garvey), will lead to perdition. Can Cleaver maintain professional standards long enough to have Missy acquitted? Will ASIO and the CIA allow him to win?
