Given to telling whoppers, [[Performer~P114021~Thomas~henrythomas]] finds himself in a boy-who-cried-wolf dilemma when he overhears two spies plotting to smuggle valuable info out of the US. When he can't get his own father [[Performer~P85491~Dabney Coleman~dabneycoleman]] to believe him, [[Performer~P114021~Thomas~henrythomas]] turns disconsolately to a computer game called "Cloak and Dagger" and begins to fantasize, imagining that he is in cahoots with secret agent Jack Flack, also played by [[Performer~P85491~Coleman~dabneycoleman]]. Finally coming to grips with the fact that the mythical Jack Flack cannot help him this time, [[Performer~P114021~Thomas~henrythomas]] takes on the spies with the help of his schoolmates, who are also "Cloak and Dagger" addicts.
