Stan loves space and with a once in a lifetime event coming up he cannot miss the solar eclipse but his irritating brother Fred has other ideas. Fred is determined to stop global warming and reduce plastic and he even vandalises supermarkets to do so. Fred has been banned from the local supermarket Spendalls because he keeps emptying all their food on the floor to show how much plastic they waste. Stan and his brother set up operation plastic where they are trying to raise enough money to magic the old Victorian fountain back to life to stop everyone from using disposable bottles. When Stan’s gran announces that she is going to get married Stan becomes even more dejected as he realises that his chances of watching the eclipse are diminishing by the minute. However, Stan is in luck because the local radio station has announced a competition to win a trip on a private plane to see the eclipse. Stan wants to see the eclipse so he enters the competition.
Does Stan see the Eclipse?
Does Fred ruin things for him?
