Carmen and Juni think their parents are boring. Little do they know that in their day, Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez were the top secret agents: masters of disguise, mavens of invention, able to stop wars before they could start. They worked for different countries until they were assigned to kill each other. They fell in love instead, and embarked on the most dangerous mission they had ever faced: raising a family. Nine years later, the disappearances of several of their old colleagues recall them to action. Then the unthinkable happens--the Cortez' too disappear. There are only two people in the world who can rescue them: their kids. Looks like Carmen and Juni are joining the "family business."
