Weary of her life as a teenage Special Ops Agent, ‘Megan’ (Hailee Steinfeld) fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school. Hoping to live the life of a “normal” teenager, she discovers that being popular, dating, and fitting in isn’t as easy as she thought. Complicating matters is ‘Victoria’ (Jessica Alba), her former handler and current nemesis, who enlists rival teen Special Agent ‘Heather’ (Sophie Turner) to go undercover at her high school and reacquire the runaway. Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson portrays Megan’s mentor, ‘Hardman’.
