Sam is the grandson of a world-renowned space adventurer. Marvelled by his ailing grandfather's stories of interstellar travel and alien romance, he models his life after these tales - even though they may be untrue. So focussed is Sam on fulfilling what he thinks is his natural destiny in life that he becomes blind to his own reality.
