In an effort to recover Lola's kidnapped son from where he's being held in Bangkok, she and Chelsea go to extreme lengths to get there undetected. But managing the crossing is just the beginning. The crowded streets of Bangkok play on Lola and Chelsea's every fear as they set up the exchange — the prized key tag for David. But when the bullets start flying, Lola and Chelsea move to plan B and beat a dangerous retreat, they still have the key tag and they still don't have David.

In an effort to find out what exactly it is that this man is so desperate for, the women enlist the help of a local to discover that what they're carrying is the key to a secure vault in New Zealand. After Ray's fitting episode in the back of the prison transfer van, the guards pull up outside the hospital, only to discover that Ray has escaped… Lola and Chelsea stake out the den where David is being held and concoct a risky plan to break him out. But in the ensuing chase through the crowded Bangkok streets, the men fire a shot and David goes down...

Whisking David off to a makeshift surgery is fraught with danger, and it's not long before the heat is on. In response to the humiliation of having both his hostage and his prized key tag taken, Morrison speaks to Karen who orders a hit on Lola's father. When Lola gets the news through Donna, she and Chelsea agree that the only way to stop the violence is to stop the man responsible. The key tag is from New Zealand, so that's where they're going. Time to put and end to this. Ray makes contact with Karen who makes clear the only way get her and their children back: find the women.

Hiding David in the safety of the Thai countryside, Lola and Chelsea touch down in breath-taking New Zealand and make their way to the vault. They manage to recover the contents of locker, but they don't go unnoticed… In the apparent safety of a cheap hotel room the women open the box to find… a rusted old handgun.

As Ray begins hunting for the women, they enlist the help of the barmaid to get an address for Will's flat. In Bangkok, David's gambling habit strips him of the last of the cash left by his mother. Lola and Chelsea embark on a spectacular train journey headed towards Will but they barely have time to catch their breath before they see Ray on their train, and he's seen them… After an epic chase the women manage to hijack a tourist vehicle and leave Ray, fuming, in their dust.

Will calls Morrison and makes a deal before heading into the mountains to lay low, unaware of the fact that Lola and Chelsea are hot on his heels. But when they discover his abandoned car rolled, they must chase him on foot into the wilderness. When they reach him he's in a tiny cabin in the gathering snowstorm and the three are forced to hunker down and pass the night.

Trapped by crushing isolation, the odd trio limp through the NZ alps towards a farm and steal a car. In Queenstown, Ray cuts up their passports and calls Morrison to lay out terms for the exchange. Lola tells David she'll buy him a ticket for the next flight to Queenstown, but she'll just have to find a way to pay for it. With Will's help they identify a shady local business and, complete with animal masks, hold it up at gunpoint. But the owner isn't the type to scare easily, and as soon as they're gone he begins his own search.

As Chelsea's past begins to make itself known in her present, Lola uses her performance skills to track down Ray's hire car and catch up with him. Josh Levine touches down at Queenstown airport where he's met by local Detective Dixon and their differences in style and theory are abundantly clear. When Ray overpowers the cop who pulls them over, Lola takes off after him. But she's not fast enough and she watches, helpless as Ray hands over the gun and Morrison ties up another loose end. Lola heads to the airport and meets David off the plane, but their reunion is cut short when Vincent appears out of nowhere…

A nail biting pursuit through a thick forest ends in a grisly death, before Josh and Dixon hear shots and join the chase. They reach Lola and Chelsea on the far side of a river and when Josh's belief in their innocence allows their escape, Dixon arrests him and sends him to the airport for deportation.

Will smuggles the women through the growing police presence to his mother's caravan. Josh overpowers his arresting cop and makes a getaway. Alice opens up. It's not just the gun, she tells them, she knows where the bodies are hidden. She hid them. Josh uses his resources to investigate the murder at the same time and begins to piece it all together as they do.

At a petrol stop en route, Lola takes off in the car. Chelsea is confused but only for a moment before her father appears. Will overhears a phone call and confronts his mother about her evident betrayal — what has she done? Lola follows Alice's directions and begins to dig for the bodies. Will desperately chases her. But he's not fast enough and he meets danger at the cabin. Morrison catches up with Lola and as the police close in around them, Chelsea appears and the two must make the ultimate decision…
