Egon has been brought up in a children's home, and he is determined to find a prosperous family. He is soon swept off by adoptive parents who trick him into believing they are millionaires. He wises up when he discovers his new home is a cell at a military base. Egon makes his escape, and in doing so overhears the plans his captors have in mind: now that they have paid the children's home for all of Egon's records, Egon has, for all intents and purposes, ceased to exist, so they can use him as a guinea pig for their clandestine space project, which will send Egon orbiting the earth, and perhaps to his doom.
