She nearly gets caught but luckily for her, the Professor was there to warn her that police found her location, and then he gave her an opportunity to become a part of one of the biggest heists in Spain. The group consisted of eight robbers: Moscow, Tokyo, Berlin, Helsinki, Oslo, Rio, and Nairobi. Each one specialized in a different part of the heist. They were all wearing red suits and masks of Salvador Dali a Spanish painter. The plan was to escape with €2.4 billion. In La Casa de Papel Season 1 you will see flashbacks of the whole process and preparation before the heist happened. They only had to follow a few simple rules and that was not to share any personal information between the heist group and not to kill anyone.
