In the heart of the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans,
Gru is growing up in the suburbs. A fanboy of supervillain supergroup The
Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily,
he gets some mayhem-making backup from the Minions. Together they build
their first lair, experiment with their first weapons and pull off their
first missions. When the Vicious 6 oust their leader Gru interviews to
become their newest member. It doesn't go well and only gets worse after
Gru outsmarts them and finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil.
On the run, Gru has to turn to an unlikely source for guidance and
discover that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.
