Film/Episode Summary:David Plummer died under the watch of Navy Seal Shane Wolfe, and now Shane has to protect Plummer’s five children while their mother goes to take care of her husband’s matters. It turns out that David was a government scientist that had top-secret government information, GHOST, at the house. As Shane tries to keep the children safe, he is also on the search for GHOST within the house. Even though he had no prior experience with children, he manages to parent five children on his own.
