Adventures in space begin in the backyard of the EXPLORERS. Presented in 35mm!
Space dreams come true for a group of misfit friends after they build a spacecraft in their backyard laboratory. This all comes about after one of them envisions the plan in which to make the spaceship and another has the smarts to create the complex computer program that builds it and another actually constructs it. As they head off into the great unknown of space in their homemade shuttle name Thunder Road, their adventure takes them to another galaxy where things are not quite what they would seem!
