Synopsis:
Itching powder, a slice of old cheese and his Sunday’s best. Those are the ingredients of one of Egon’s clever plans. Egon is an orphan who lives in a orphanage in Denmark. He intends to get adopted, but not by any old runof-the-mill average citizens. No, he wants to be adopted by a rich millionaire couple. With the help of his two friends Benny and Kjeld his plan is successful and Egon soon finds himself in the backseat of a Rolls Royce. His dream of a new life steeped in luxury finally seems to have come true. Soon Egon discovers that his new parents are not real millionaires, but the ring leaders o a secret space mission. They have bought Egon for a million Kronen from the director of the orphanage in order to blast him into space with a rocket. But Egon manages to escape from the laboratory and tries to lay his hands on the million Kronen.
