Neo has retired from the life of villainy, but now he suddenly wants to return to it. It seems Pacino's son has him rattled enough to do something desperate. He even turned to Captain Cohen for help in going undercover.
Neo Mokgethi used to be the big bad guy of the Scandal streets, but he's turned a new leave. Or at least, that's what he wants Lerumo to believe.
However, the appearance of an old acquaintance's son has rattled the retired 'godfather' enough to take action.
Gabadiya, a young man with sinister deals and ongoings, gave Neo a clear message: Play along or you and those you care about get hurt.
Neo isn't the kind of man to take threats lightly, but he's also not young anymore. He is obviously intimidated by Gabadiya.
Now Neo got it in his head to get close to the young gangster and perhaps expose him by feeding the police information about his suspected human trafficking.
But given Neo's past, it's easy to think there's more to this plan than meets the eye.
