Orion tells the story of Jimmy Ellis, an unknown singer with a voice the very twin of Elvis’. Plucked from obscurity, he was signed to Sun Records and given a outlandish fictional identity. The scheme exploded into cult success - and the “Elvis is alive” myth was born.

Borne by his incredible voice, Jimmy Ellis - as the masked Orion - gained the success he'd always craved but it was at a price.

This story revels in the manipulations of the music industry, the allure of fantasy and the eternal search for identity. Who was that masked man?
