How to steal 2 million Release Date: 2 September, 2011

Action, Drama


Five long years…that’s the time Jack, a career-criminal, has spent behind bars for his most recent
prison sentence. His partner in crime and best friend, Twala, never got caught and Jack never talked.
However, Twala proved as treacherous as Jack is honourable by marrying Jack’s former fiancée, Kim,
during his prison term.

Upon his release, Jack decides to go legit, but after being rejected for a loan he must find a way to
make money, quickly. An opportunity presents itself when Twala suggests they rob a house with a
take of R2 million. The catch is that the mark is Twala’s father, Julius.

In his search for a third partner Jack comes across the tough, but sexy Olive. She’s a street-smart
woman, with a mysterious past and murky present.

When the robbery goes wrong secret double crosses are revealed. Twala never intended to split the
money with Jack and planned to kill him all along. Meanwhile, Julius edges closer to finding out who
ripped him off as the pressure mounts on the three accomplices. The tension builds towards an
explosive and surprising finale.

How to Steal 2 Million is the debut feature film by bright, young director Charlie Vundla. It stars well-known actors Menzi Ngubane, Rapulana Seiphemo, Terry Pheto, Hlubi Mboya and John Kani.
