Miha, a poet whom no one takes seriously, earns his living by writing cheap advertising slogans. This outsider poet of the new age gets commissioned to write an ode to the famous Slovene poet Prešeren, for the occasion of the national celebration, due to the 200th anniversary of Prešeren’s birth. Who was Prešeren, what did he drink and what sort of women did he like? A comedy can begin.
