Aviv Talmor, a poet and literature teacher is informed that his father that he has never known, has died, bequeathing him one Israeli Lira (less than one penny).

Aviv is excited by the prospect that he could be the great grand son of the legendary poet. Israeli’s literary community, however, is shocked by his claim and goes to war with him to clear the national poet’s good name.
