Dramatic Comedy

A recent high-school graduate Hercules Fitch has been drafted by the CIA. Originally plopped in the mailroom, our mythically named hero finds himself surprisingly assigned to a high-level case—tracking down a notorious "Mr. X." Hercules is quickly drawn into an intriguing, complex web of underworld figures (a Chinese Zen master), adventurers (a female "Indiana Jones" and a former pirate turned nuclear submarine officer) and assassins (an elite Ninja killer), as he follows the trail of clues toward his mysterious nemesis. The glamour of the assignment, however, begins to dim as he discovers he may not be up to the task. To make matters worse, Herc's time is divided as he rushes home periodically to care for his younger sister and brother. His surrogate father status in the family is a job that proves every bit as tricky as being a spy. Between the clock ticking down to find "Mr. X" and a sister melting down at home, Hercules tries to make sense of the world he has inherited. Against all odds, his remarkable "labors" give him hope for his future. Simple set. Approximate running time: 30 minutes.
