A formal investigation into Mr. Todokoro has yielded evidence that he may be managing former Secretary General Yakushima's assets. This prompts the government to launch its own investigation into the allegations but there are two problems: Todokoro's vault is state of the art, and only he can access the assets in the vault. The other more immediate concern is that a hacker and thief by the name of Cash Eye plans on infiltrating the vault during an exclusive high society party. To keep Cash Eye from stealing and/or destroying valuable evidence Section 9 is called in to prevent the theft. However, it is all a ploy by Section 9 to find a cache of illegally laundered money, with Kusanagi posing as Cash Eye. They trick Todokoro into opening his own vault, where they find the money.
The overall plot and some of the scenes in this episode pay homage to the film Ocean's Eleven.

- Tachikoma 2: Yeah, but maybe we should refer to them as eccentric.
