Alfons Jitterbit is unlucky. “Jitterbit, chicken shit!” – call boys from school after him. No wonder the eleven-year-old wants nothing more than being a “normal boy”, just like his parents want him to be. The boy has too much imagination and too little muscle, says his father. Alfons only dreams of becoming a famous astronaut like Alexander Gerst and his first officer Sergej Krumov, who are depicted on the huge poster hanging in his room and whom he tells all his worries. When a competition “for inventions that are groundbreaking for our aviation vision of the future” is announced at school, Alfons knows what to do. Together with his best friend Benni and his new classmate Emilia he wants to construct a water rocket and win the competition. But as always, there are some obstacles in the way of the unlucky boy. Not only does nasty Nico steal his idea, headmistress Dr. Girzig and class teacher Flickendorf give Alfons a hard time after a “little chemical accident”.
