James a 13-year-old Cherub agent, is sent undercover to a maximum-security prison. His mission is to draw out arms dealer Jane Oxford by befriending her son, Curtis, and helping him escape. Despite several kinks in James’ escape plan, he and Curtis successfully break out and meet up with James’ sister, Lauren. The three children steal across state lines and hide out with one of Oxford’s henchmen before finally arriving at a hotel, where Oxford claims to have new lives waiting for them. Ultimately betrayed by Oxford, the young agent must work to contact their mission controller and keep a close tail on Curtis to complete their mission with Oxford’s capture.
