Based on the hit DreamWorks film, this splashy spectacle follows the high-flying adventures of a globetrotting con artist, Frank Abagnale Junior, played by Gabe Martin. Seeking fame and fortune, Frank Junior runs away from home at the age of 16 to begin an unforgettable adventure. 

With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer — living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But, when Frank’s lies catch the attention of the FBI and Detective Hanratty, played by Halle Huhnerkoch, is put on the case, it seems as though Frank's luck may finally run out.
