Little do the brothers know, their parents are hunters who protect powerful fairy tale artifacts that are located in museums and other highly protected spots around the globe.

With the help of the Flynn’s assistant Dylan (Alexa Vega), the brothers soon realize their parents’ true profession and their attempt to protect the magic mirror, which holds the ability to grant any wish.

When the group discovers that their family friend Mason (Garber) has plans of his own to attain the enchanted mirror, the brothers must find their parents before the mirror falls into the wrong hands.

The Hunters is produced by Eh-Okay Entertainment and is presented by Walden Media, ARC Entertainment and Kickstart Productions, in association with Walmart and Procter & Gamble.
