Jake Bouchard, played by Dylan Everett (Degrassi, The Next Generation, How to be Indie) a shy 17 year old, has finally scored a date with the incredibly wonderful Angie played by Greta Onieogou, (Heroes Reborn, Heartland, Fever Pitch). There's only one problem: he's forgotten that his senile, paranoid grandpa played by James Caan (The Godfather, Funny Lady, Misery) is coming from the 'home' that night for his monthly family dinner, and it's Jake's turn to drive Grandpa back afterwards. Jake does some quick talking and manages to push off the date with Angie until after dinner. While driving Grandpa back, Jake gets a call – Angie's car has broken down and she needs Jake to pick her up right away.
Though mortified at the thought of Grandpa bringing the crazy in front of Angie, (he has all these nutty war hero and spy stories) Jake has no choice but to go to help her. Jake gets to the location, however Angie's gone. Jake assumes that Angie got a ride with someone else, however Grandpa sees tire tracks in the street and tells Jake that the tracks are military. "Your girlfriend is in trouble."
Thus begins an insane night of chasing down clues that, on the surface appear insane, but the deeper Jake digs the more possible it seems that Grandpa is exactly what he has always claimed to have been – one of the greatest military intelligence officers in the world! This means that Angie really is in trouble!
In a final effort to rescue Angie, Grandpa brings Jake with him as he reenlists his old army unit – "The Devil's Scum". Now in their seventies, the Special Forces group reunites and bands together with Jake to go on one last mission.
Also starring Louis Gossett Junior and Kenneth Welsh. Directed by Erik Canuel (Bon Cop Bad Cop, Flashpoint, Transporter).
