Retired super spy Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has faced many challenges in her career, but trying to mother her two stepchildren, Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), with her new husband Wilbur (Joel McHale) is proving to be her toughest job yet.

With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent.
