The somewhat self-centered Majid has one aim in life - to become a poet. When he discovers Victor Hugo's 'Les Miserables,' he falls in love. However, his lowly status as a delivery boy means that he cannot afford his own copy of the book, and must go to the library to read it. When this becomes tiresome, Majid makes the decision to switch the library book with a tome belonging to his uncaring brother-in-law. Unfortunately, little does Majid know that the book has a valuable check tucked into it. Now he must track the book down before the check is discovered. Will he succeed, and more importantly, will he ever make it as a poet? A charming tale of a young man struggling to realize his dreams.
