After Mindy is busted and forced to retire as Hit Girl, Dave joins a group of amateur superheroes led by Col. Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), a reformed mobster. Just as Dave and company start to make a real difference on the streets, the villain formerly known as Red Mist rears his head yet again.

A brand new Netflix original, after spending a night with the girl of his dreams only to become just friends, a man gets the opportunity to travel through time through a magical photo booth, and alter that night over and over again until he gets everything perfect.
