They are betrayed by one of their own and are ambushed. They're all left for dead but are found by Tonto who escaped while the robbery was happening.

Agent Stansfield has his work cut out for him because this family has a knack of getting into trouble and has to relocate them more than once.

The mystic spells that protect their home are not working and the only thing that may be able to save them is the fabled Golden Fleece which is said to be able to heal any wound. The only problem is it's said to reside in the Sea of Monsters or known to us mortals as the Bermuda Triangle. They don't exactly have permission to go but they go anyway.
