Only 11 episodes of the series were broadcast on the west coast during its original run.

He is given a top secret assignment to try and escape to freedom and find the mythical place called 'Sanctuary' which is really just outside the Domed City. Only he is pursued by his former friend, Francis, another Sandman, who doesn't know of his assignment and attempts to terminate him
