In the movie "Secrets of an Undercover Wife" directed by George Erschbamer, we follow the life of Rachel Hunter (played by Shawnee Smith) who is a successful undercover agent, mostly involved in drug trafficking investigations. Her work life has been a bit of a stretch for her marriage with her husband, Tom Hunter (played by Michael Woods), as she has been lying to him about her job for years. Tom, a computer programmer, is a loving husband and father who adores Rachel and their daughter, Angela. He has no idea that his wife's job is much more than just volunteering at a non-profit organization.

Rachel's latest investigation puts her on a dangerous path as she is tasked with getting close to the drug kingpin, Raoul (played by Gordon Michael Woolvett). Rachel manages to lure Raoul, who falls in love with her; while Tom is left dealing with the aftermath of Rachel's dangerous investigation, trying to protect his family from the impending danger that follows Rachel's actions.
