In the premiere episode, Anbert Hill (Luke Pasqualino) would love nothing more than to escape from the shadow of his legendary criminal father, VIic Hill (Dougray Scott), who keeps close tabs on the family’s legitimate and illegitimate businesses from the comfort his jail cell. With an eye towards breaking out of small-time crime, Albert has teamed up with his friend Charlie Cavendish-Scott (Rupert Grint) to manage the nascent boxing career of their friend, Billy Ayres (Lucien Laviscount). They’ve finally booked a fight that could vault Billy into the big time, only to find themselves double-crossed by Sonny Castillo (Ed Westwick), a mob-connected Cuban club owner. Defeated and effectively robbed of a massive payday, Albert takes to heart the words of his mother Lily (Juliet Aubrey): “You can either be a mark or make a mark.” Working on a tip from Sonny’s criminally ambitious girlfriend Lotti Mott (Phoebe Dynevor), Albert devises a scheme to raid the gangster’s monthly bank delivery. But the heist turns something else altogether when he, Charlie and Billy unexpectedly encounter two armored vans – and happen to rob the one that is filled with gold bullion.
Inspired by a real life heist in London, Snatch, centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime. The boys must quickly learn to navigate the treacherous waters of London’s underworld as rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend.
