    • Synopsis
    • DR. DOUG MARSHALL, an altruistic genius, is on the verge of a scientific breakthrough that will drastically effect mankind and our global energy crisis. CHARLES SINGER, his greedy business partner and principle investor has other intentions for the technology. Before he can finish his work, MARSHALL is suddenly lost when his laboratory explodes. Only SINGER, survives the inferno. But just before the lab collapses he gets wind that a second prototype exists hidden in Dr. Marshall’s secret backup laboratory.
      Stopping at nothing to get ahold of the 2nd prototype, SINGER befriends AMANDA erroneously, assuming she knew of the secret laboratory.
      Growing up in his father’s footsteps, SCOTTY, the scientist’s bright 12-year-old, is the only one who knows about the laboratory.
      SCOTTY, seeks to protect AMANDA from SINGER and his goons but feels all alone in his mission to safeguard his father’s heritage and the secret backup lab that houses even more marvelous inventions and Marshall family secrets.
      In desperate need of help, SCOTTY seeks the friendship of his isolated schoolmate MARCUS, the son of AMANDA’s new friend KARILYN.  The boys soon realize that only together can they save their families from SINGER and his goons. With the help of super-human powers in a super-hero outfit, inspired by the Monarch butterfly (one of MARSHALL’s secrets) they plot their underground defense. Time runs out for the boys when SINGER kidnaps AMANDA and KARILYN. Now no longer able to hide their mission from the adults, SCOTTY, MARCUS and their own sidekick, ALI must save the lab, the secrets and their parents all before being grounded.
