Au début du film, David Bouchard (Patrick Huard) s'enfuit à bord d'une voiture luxueuse qu'il vient de voler dans un stationnement. Bien qu'il soit poursuivi par deux automobilistes, il rejoint discrètement un garage clandestin, où la voiture sera modifiée. Quelques instants plus tard, des policiers entrent en force dans le garage et Bouchard est confronté à son ancien partenaire, Martin Ward (Colm Feore). Pendant qu'ils se battent, Bouchard explique que le chef du réseau de voleurs est absent du garage. Ward accepte de jouer au prisonnier en contrepartie d'une plus longue explication. Bouchard et Ward s'enfuient, les deux policiers simulant un enlèvement. Près d'un cours d'eau, Ward, officier de la GRC, explique à Bouchard, agent de la Sûreté du Québec, qu'il devient de facto son subalterne. Bouchard conteste, mais plie de crainte de perdre tout soutien. Il rajoute qu'il doit retourner auprès du chef du réseau, mais doit être blessé pour que les criminels croient à son histoire. Ward explique que lui aussi doit montrer des signes de lutte. Chacun inflige donc une blessure à l'autre. Ensuite, les adjoints de Ward se présentent sur les lieux ; Ward explique qu'il doivent agir comme si Bouchard s'était enfui et donc chercher des indices pour satisfaire les journalistes.
