When Nicolas learns that his E.T.-obsessed little boy Felix is doomed to an early death, he decides to arrange to fulfill the tyke's fondest dream, which is to be taken on a tour of another planet by an extraterrestrial being. Though this make-believe adventure may put his son's life in some jeopardy, he feels that the benefits outweigh the dangers. He borrows a spaceship prop from the circus, dons an "alien" costume, and while his boy is sedated, "abducts" him. The lad wakes up in the spaceship on the snow-covered summit of a mountain, and is soon met by his alien, "Gawin." Previously, Nicolas had neglected his boy somewhat, but now he is as attentive as anyone could ask. Eventually, a strange mountain hermit shows up and performs not just one, but two healing acts.
