He must find a weapon that could shrink the month so it can be moved easily.

Taking back this weapon from the Vector is not a simple problem and the only hope is to utilize the three orphans named Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Gaier Fund), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher) that was easily able to enter the hideout headquarters Vector.
Gru then adopted three children, and use them to enter a pie-shaped robots made by Doctor Nefario (Russell Brand) to the house Vector.

But it seems the problem does not stop here because Gru who originally only wanted to take advantage of these three children orphaned in fact begin to feel the bond. Bond that never felt.
