Wilhelm, called Billy by friends, is the son of a German scientist working on the project. Billy discovers the plan to send a Chimp into space. To gain his silence, he is hired to help train Chimps for the mission.

He becomes friends with Mac, the Chimp who is eventually selected for the mission. Billy becomes emotionally conflicted when he realizes that Mac may not return from the flight.
