Dom and Kay fail to meet the Brightmarsh Gang's deadline for a drugs payment. Can Dom persuade Kay to steal from the church, or will Kay's faith mean they get their legs broken?

Further details

Dom and Kay are given a large package of drugs to sell for the gang. While trying to shift the goods, Dom and Kay have their package robbed, and now they have to somehow find £3,000 before the gang's deadline for settling the deal passes.

Dom raises her half of the money by selling everything she owns. But church mouse Kay's only option is to steal from Pastor Tomi's album fund, something he is determined not to do. Can Dom get the better of Kay and get her hands on the cash - or will Kay's unyielding faith mean they both get their legs broken?
