Escaping after thwarting several of Olaf's attempts to kill them and steal the family fortune, the children wind up in the care of a series of quirky relatives, including a reptile-obsessed uncle (Billy Connolly) and an intensely phobic aunt (Meryl Streep), outwitting Olaf and his evil schemes at every turn.
