But someone sees untapped potential in the lad, and believes Eggsy is capable of leading a more honorable life than the one he has chosen. Harry Hart was an associate of young Eggsy’s father, and truly believes the younger Unwin may be destined follow in his father’s footsteps as a Kingsman agent. Harry arranges for Eggsy to enter training to become an agent. Will young Mr. Unwin pass muster and help the Kingsman defeat a villain, that seeks to eliminate everyone in the world he deems unworthy of existence?
