In the year 2065, Earths natural resources have been ravaged. A small two-manned space-craft has been given the mission to gather samples on a possibly inhabitable alternative to earth; Atlas 29D. The two astronauts are left stranded in space once their communication with Earth fails. Now, Atlas 3 has been launched. They've just picked up the samples and they are on their way home, when they pick up Atlas 1’s signal. Rocket Man tells the story of Scout Kepler; one of the two lost astronauts of the Atlas 1. In the words of Elton John, he's a "Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone". We see clips of his log footage, mainly consisting of him talking to himself and pretending to host a radio-show, ironically, to stop himself from going crazy.
