Lena and Shane know about trouble. Lena had a teenage brush with gang life, and Shane got busted for computer hacking. Now they've gone straight: Lena is going to college, and Shane works for a computer company. They give back to their community by helping kids and solving crimes in their city. They are The Fixers: when they see something wrong, they find a way to fix it.
