Charlie lives in the future. Not only is he an 11-year-old genius, he's also a slave. He wants nothing more than to escape a dystopian life with his little sister Sally (and cat Curly) for greener pastures. This is his sole motivation to build a secret teleportation machine out of stolen bits of trash. With the help of a runaway mad scientist, Charlie finally has a chance to thwart the evil government and leave for good - until an evil robot spy tattle-tales on his little toy. Will Charlie and Sally survive this dastardly deed?
