Synopsis: After a significant loss, 8 year old Aditi is left yearning for connection. When tasked with delivering groceries to her elderly neighbor, she quickly discovers the “ordinary, grump next door” is in fact a super spy … or so she thinks.
She enlists her brother, Raj, to carry out an elaborate plan to take Ian on one last mission, but when things don’t go as planned, the siblings learn more about their neighbor than they expected.
