When a less talented, but very attractive writer Brigitte arrives with a bad manuscript at publishing house, the brothers Marc and Boudewijn, directors of a distressed family publishing house, immediately see possibilities. Creating a publicity gimmick, they let her change roles with the stuttering author of a literary masterpiece. The trick works; the book becomes a mega-success both artistically and commercially, but the initial agreement between all parties turns into a bitter battle for recognition.
