Refusing to give up his dream, Farmer enlists the support of his wide Audie and his family, embarking on a mission to build is own rocket and launch himself into space.

His actions soon attract the attention of the authorities, who see his plan as a risk to public safety. Cheered on as a renegade hero by the media and the public, Charles Farmer stubbornly resists the government's attempts to thwart him and presses on towards the fulfillment of his dream.
