A Wacky Undercover Adventure

The gang’s ultimate target is none other than Juan Carlos de la Sol, a powerful crime kingpin who keeps his cash hidden in an unsuspecting location: a Taco Bell in downtown LA. Determined to take down De la Sol and seize his fortune, the gang concocts an audacious plan to tow the entire restaurant, all while tearing through the streets at breakneck speeds.
As you can imagine, chaos ensues as the gang races against time, rival street racers, and the law itself.
