This Sci-Fi Drama centers around the teen-age Eric, son of a computer scientist who worked for the Apollo mission which sent the first human to the moon. Eric, determined to become an astronaut himself one day, befriends Paul Andrews, the thirteenth man on the moon. Paul is avoided by other astronauts nowadays, because he was very rude and rebuffing when he returned from space. Only slowly Eric learns that Paul discovered something, during his excursion on the moon, that he keeps as a secret.

An early scene shows Laurie driving Eric from Portland, Oregon, to Cedar Bay, Oregon. They cross a major waterway on a 3-lane suspension bridge. The only waterway that big near Portland is the Columbia River; if you cross it you are in Washington, and the only bridges are Interstate highway bridges with more than 3 lanes. (It's actually the Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver.) See more
