After evading the law enforcement officers, Murphy is left stranded on the side of the highway, alone and vulnerable.

While Murphy tries to express his telepathic abilities to Alice, he is struck by lightning, enhancing his cognitive functions and his ability to communicate telepathically.
After the kids discover the ancient necklace Murphy is wearing, they take it to their father, the Professor, who is astonished by the necklace's extraordinary powers. The adventurous family realizes that the necklace could have far-reaching implications and decide to keep it safe from prying eyes.
