Danny and Eleanor are used to accompanying their Archaeologist parents on trips all over the world. While Danny’s stoked for a real Indiana Jones-style adventure, his parents think he’s a little too young to join them and their assistant Peter on their expedition for the Pharaoh’s lost tomb. But when Danny sneaks into the tomb and takes home an eerily glowing talisman as a souvenir he wakes the next morning to find their parents have been turned into mummies!
Now Danny and his older sister Eleanor (who would much rather be texting her friends than hanging out with her annoying brother) must race against time to change their parents back. While the kids race around town, their parents go in and out of consciousness, becoming drooling, brainless mummies at the most inopportune times. Things are further complicated by two eager cops who find Eleanor to be “suspicious”, their parents disgruntled assistant Peter, and not to mention an ancient Pharaoh who’s managed to follow them all the way from Egypt.
