Thad Roberts is an up and coming self driven student whose dream has come reality when NASA accepts him into their space program. He begins to make friends along with establishing himself as a success, however his creative intelligence gets the better of him. With his new love Rebecca and fellow electronics specialist Sandra, Thad decides to steal a national treasure of unimaginable value. The objects of desire are moon rocks taken from the first few Apollo missions 12 through 17, all 842 pounds that are divided into 2,200 samples. The event turns into one of the biggest heists in U.S. history and one of the strangest get aways in past times. Thad wanted to be the brightest star - the one everyone saw when he or she looked at the sky. The scary thing was, it didn't really matter if that star was bright because it was the biggest or because it was just a self imploding falling star.
