The Mortons ask the team to retrieve their adopted son, Luka, from a crooked adopted agency in Serbia after they pay them $120,000 including the mortgage of their house and only get to spend time with Luka for a week. The team discuss it and find out that Irina Larenko, a grifter who suggested the idea to the Mortons cheated them using an adoption scam using a real orphan (that Parker noticed on the Morton's video of them and Luka). They decide go to Belgrade where Irina was invited to the party at the American embassy next week.

At the embassy, Eliot decides to go to her (due to the fact that Sophie conned the ambassador before) and get some information. Meanwhile, Hardison also manages to find out the guy who picked Luka up is also at the party by the name Nicolas Obrovic, who manages to get hooked on Parker. Once they find out more details of Nicolas, somehow Parker remembers her time as a childhood and stabs Nicolas with a fork. The team is shocked about this as Parker makes her escape through the window. Soon, Nate quickly tells Eliot to tell Irina that he's producing a film and tries to find some cast. Irina takes the bait, giving him her card while Eliot tells her there's a car that will pick her up first thing in the morning. Sophie asks how Nate knows and Nate tells her that a European grifter who wants to be an actress, like another grifter he knows, will fall for it.

After regrouping (as Parker was later seen back with them), they manage to find a movie set the following day. They manage to clear out the producer (after Hardison makes the film's production cash disappear) and the director (by sending a false message saying there's another movie that wants him as director). Nobody tells that to Parker, worrying that she'll jeopardize the mission and Nate takes the role of the director. Once everything's set, Eliot brings Irina to Nate and they cast her as the mother. Outside, Hardison have a talk with Parker telling her that they need her trust if she's going along with the game plan. Just then Eliot ask if they have a script and realize that Sophie changes the script from a two page script to a ten page script with stunts and special effects. They also learn that Sophie wants to play as 'Sister Magda'. Nate also learns this from Sophie and reminds her that there's no emotional payoff since this movie is all about NATO troops being attacked by werewolves. Reluctantly, Nate agrees to let her act while unable to tell her the truth of her acting skills (especially her team is shocked of Nate's actions).

As the movie plays well, Sophie seems to act well which Nate tells Eliot that 'she can act when it is an act'. As they bring Irina in, the pretend to panic as the cast who was suppose to play the boy didn't show up. Once they describe the same shape as Luka has to Irina, she promise them to bring back the same boy to the set without them cutting the scene. As Irina leaves, Nate gives the signal for Parker to follow her. But as Parker arrives there, Hardison (who attached a camera to her) realizes that they're keeping some other orphans there and the orphanage isn't what it looks like. At the harbor, Parker nearly breaks into tears that they can't save all of them and only save Luka, worrying that it will end up like her when she was a child while Hardison tries to comfort her, telling her that he already contacted Nate and is trying to find a way. As the team regroups, they learn from what Parker saw that the 'orphanage' is an arm dealer's base using the adoption scam for extra cash. Nate tells them that they have to stick to the original plan as they're not ready for Nicolas's men and oddly Parker agrees with Nate, confusing Hardison.

The next day, Irina brings Luka to the set and get ready to start filming. However, once Luka was places inside the cabinet and Irina 'dies' in the film, after a long pause, she realize that Nate and Eliot are missing and even notice the cabinet that Luka's in is missing. Somewhere else, the Mortons are waiting for them as they gives Luka to them. As the Mortons leave, they notice Parker was not with them. Luckily, Hardison manage to plant a GPS tracker on her shoes after the party and quickly goes to the orphanage. At the orphanage, as Nicolas is getting ready to sell the weapons to the buyer, Parker sneaks into the place and tries to tell the kids to follow them (badly even when using the translation book). However once Parker mention 'Haagen-Daaz' , the orphans cheer and follows her out. Suddenly, Nicolas appears in front of Parker when she opens the door and they fight. Parker wins and quickly leads the children out. Parker tries to sneak her way out with the children but a child cough, catching the men's attention. Luckily Sophie was there to lead them out with the help of Eliot dealing with one of the guards. To add confusion to it, the men hear a policeman threatening that they have the place surrounded. Everyone was outside and gets on the bus but not a few miles away, it suddenly stopped as Nicolas and his men catch up on them and shoots them point. Oddly, Parker wasn't hurt as it turns out that Nate and Eilot switches the guns with props. On cue, Hardison blows up the orphanage and leaves with the crew. Nicolas was confuse as some of the buyers were not happy about it. As they see the money raining down on them due to the explosion, all Nicolas can do is laugh in shame.

Somewhere else, Nate tells everyone that they replace the license plates so they have a clean shot at the border while telling Parker that the kids are going to be turn over to the World Health Organization and are expecting them. As for Irina, Nate tells her they've taken care of her. Hardison somehow transfers the 'missing movie funds' to her account. The real producer finds her pin number and calls the FBI to arrest her. Sure that Irina is happy to see the money inside her account but was cut short as she was dragged away by the cops. Sophie ask Nate if she recorded it but before Nate could speak, Eliot lies to her that there is no film inside. Fuming, Sophie tells her that they're going to Paris after this. Hardison scolded Parker for doing that as she might end up killed as Parker realize she didn't plan this ahead. Hardison even reminds her that they're a team. The episode ends where Parker tells Nate to stop by at Haagen-Dazs while the children cheer in joy.
